I will be out of a job again next week. The guy who I was replacing (and who everbody told me would never come back) is coming back on Monday. I am supposed to train him on the new stuff I've been doing and then hit the road. I'm guessing this will take two days.
The nice thing is that they are going to pay me for two weeks of work, regardless of how long the training takes.
My wife will be out of work in a couple of weeks too. The semester ends, and she cannot renew the contract.
We've gotten no word from the Chinese department.
My father-in-law has not yet found a job. They have to leave their house by the end of the month. Unless something happens fast, they will have to find a storage bin for all of their stuff and move in with some relatives in Nashville, TN.
I think I am cursed. Everyone near me seems to be losing their jobs, and finding no prospect of getting a replacement.
Strangely, I feel pretty good about it all, and my faith is stronger than it has been in a long while.
