Layoffs hit hard this week, not just at Target and Best Buy, but also at my company. So far I've been lucky, and I know exactly how lucky I am. I've consistently been clear on my feelings for my job, but when it comes down to it, I still have one. For now. And at this point, any job is a good one, so I'm grateful to be employed.
That doesn't mean I'm not working on writing so someday I can leave the land o'cubes for my dream job, but the fact is any steady, decently-paid position is nothing to scoff. Our taxes and any possible bonus (oddly enough, the SAME DAY layoffs swept through the parent company, it was made fairly clear that there will be some sort of raise/bonus situation in March) will help. Pay off debt, put some in the bank.
I love my husband. I love my family. I love my dog. The rest? Job, money, debt, house, car...just frosting.
