Well, I've joined the thousands of others who've been laid off. Luckily, my husband is still working and my job wasn't a huge contribution monetarily - more of a therapy for me to which I could escape. Now is a good time for me to get the house in better order, get the puppy we've been eyeing, spend time working on a few other projects, etc.
The economy is scarier every day. Sheesh. And here I am adding to the family with a dog. Ah well.
