Well it’s layoff day here at my job, the drama should commence shortly.  I’ll be sure to let you know how it turns out. I’m leaning toward ‘I’m not getting laid off’ but that doesn’t make it any easier, I know it’ll mean more work for me, and there are people here with families and it’s right before the holidays and it’s just sad either way Either way it seems like today will be a pretty tense, pretty harrowing day.

Beets Me: This is hard, so don’t feel intimidated.  I wrap each beet in aluminum foil and bake it for about an hour at 375 degrees.  That is it.  Afterward I let them cool down a bit and peel them, the skins come right off, then I chop, dice or slice and serve.

I woke up this morning at 6am (I’ve decided that 5am is ridiculously early, but 6am is doable) and went to the gym for a run and some strength training.  Tonight I shoot, then work on a review I’m writing.  A pretty full day.

UPDATE: Well, I thought I was lower on the layoff list since I don’t make a gigantic salary and they still want me to train a new person starting in December, but alack.  As of December 19, I am down one form of steady employment.  I was upset for about an hour, then decided that being upset is just about the least productive thing I could do, so I’ll spend today working on resumes and cover letters and trying to figure out what I want to do next.  I choose instead, to think of this as an opportunity to start doing work I actually enjoy-crazy, I know!
