Let's get the big thing out of the way: I found out that I'm one of several dozen people at my company who will be laid off at the end of the year. I wasn't sure if I wanted to mention it here, but I'll take any job leads I can get. My LinkedIn profile is here, and I'd appreciate any referrals, leads, or recommendations you can provide.
Then last night I got a call from my credit card company about some questionable charges. Sure enough, the first one they mentioned was definitely not initiated by me. So it seems I've been victimized by the booming credit card fraud industry yet again. I'll have to stop by my credit union this morning to dispute the $1,000+ charge and live without a credit card until they can issue me a new one. [Update: D'oh! It's Veteran's Day, so the credit union is closed. Sigh.]
Did I mention I think I'm getting sick? Or that Dr. Jones chewed up several pieces of yesterday's mail? Or that last night was the first night since the time change that I've gotten a reasonable amount of sleep?
Don't get me wrong, I am actually feeling very optimistic about the adventures to come. It's just that I'm a bit overwhelmed right now. But I've got this. I really do.
