Oooh, there’s so much gossip in my office today!  Which is why I’m posting later than usual-there’s so much drama, and since I’ve resolved to just deal with the situation, because what else can I do, I’m just taking it all in and enjoying.  Everyone’s mad, even the people who weren’t laid off.  We have damage control conference calls and HR employees just advising we ‘phone it in’.  It’s a whirlwind. I sort of wish there was this sort of camaraderie  in my office all the time, not just in times of crisis.

BTW, Thank you all so much for you kind and reassuring words here and on Elastic Waist.  I can’t even express how much better they made me feel.  I know I don’t know you in real life, but I do sort of feel like I know you, if that makes sense?

Last night I shot a couple of episodes of Pretty Imperfect and the crew came over with a bottle of whiskey and we took shots before and after to lighten the mood/pay homage to a crappy economy, so if I look a bit tipsy in the up coming episodes we know who to blame 😉 .

So today I’m working, albeit not that hard and not as much as I’m gossiping and sending out resumes.  This morning I got up at 4am (sheeesh, I guess the sleeping late starts later) and couldn’t sleep so I went to a 6:30am spin class.  Starting the day off right with exercise and a balanced breakfast, now I’m trying to play catch up on phone calls, emails and drama that I missed yesterday.  Tonight I’m meeting up with a couple of wonderful girl-friends of mine, one of whom is in HR-recruiting for a major accounting company, so I may pick her brain, for Vietnamese food.  I’ve printed out the menu and it seems that there are a decent amount of steamed items that may make tonight healthy-ish.
