Work Week Over…

I am so glad that this work week is over!!!… It’s been a really long and tiring week. We got word this morning that pink slips were handed out. In total we lost four people, plus the two other coworkers who’s last day was today (they resigned a few weeks ago)… That leaves us with 6 gone, which doesn’t sound like much, but there are only about 22 of us.

The day was sad and kinda surreal… I was a bit awkward, until we had a company meeting and reasons were served. Luckily, I’m okay… but one other production designer was let go, but I think he was expecting it and was not planning on staying longer. I’m kinda worried about the art directors and copywriters. We won’t have much in the creative department, so that’s going to be tough on us.

I had a couple tough projects. One involved 16 Flash banners… which I finally finished today. I’m glad I took it home to work on last night.

I broke one of my crowns last Friday, and got an appointment with my dentist yesterday and got it fix. It didn’t really take so long, because he had the image on file and they were able to make a new one on site even with the missing piece. I swear, they are really technological there. Plus, I didn’t have to pay since, it’s a crown they created back in 2005. I guess it was like under warranty or something.

Well, time to head home. I was killing time to avoid traffic and critical mass that, hopefully is over.

I’m looking forward to getting caught up in the garden this weekend and hopefully, cranking out some updates and photos.

  • Wow your day does sound awkward.. it’s hard to be in that situation.. with everyone around you being let go.

    Can’t wait for the garden updates :)

  • ugh…this economy layoff situation is so worrisome. I’m glad you’re ok for now. I hate to hear about your co-workers though. It seems we have some of that impending perhaps as well. Scary times.

    • I’m so glad too… and grateful that I have a job… I hope you will be okay at work…
