Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 24, 2013


Merry Christmas everyone! 
I hope tomorrow is filled with joy for all of you.

I'm going to take a week off from the blog but I will be 
back January 1, 2014. I've just found out that everyone 
in my office lost their jobs because of outsourcing. 
I will be spending the next week job hunting and 
taking breaks to spend time with people I love. 

Hope you all have a Happy New Year as well
and I'll see you in 2014!

I am so sorry about the loss of your job. While there is no good time to lose a job--Christmas seems particularly sad. But, there is a great job out there for you--I know it. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

OMG! Such a great way to share the Christmas spirit...man! I'm sorry about that because I know you loved your job. But you are an incredible woman and I know you will find something even better. Indy is a thriving city. Keep me updated, and hope the two of you have a very Merry Christmas :)

Oh no! I hate to hear that your office has lost jobs due to outsourcing. However, I am certain a great door will open up in light of this development. I speak from experience. Sending you many virtual hugs and wishing you and yours many blessings for Christmas.

Hi Melissa,
Sorry to hear about the job. What a horrible time of year for them to do that. Hopefully, as others have mentioned above, you will end up with something even better. :-)

Thank you all so very much for your encouraging words! It was not great timing with the holidays, but this morning I just accepted a new job offer to become the editor of a monthly publication. I'm excited and looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities! What a holiday whirlwind!
