Just before 5PM on Friday, the CEO of the company I work for, sent an email to every employee around the world about FY2010 budget planning. Our fiscal year begins on 7/1/09. Among the "savings opportunities" he cites is a 5%-10% reduction in all departments. I HAVE noticed the HR Director in my director's office, which is right next to mine, frequently lately.
So, now it's just a matter of waiting it out to see what happens. I'm not losing sleep over it. As mentioned in an earlier post (12/28 to be exact), I have a "Que Sera, Sera" attitude about most things. But it certainly doesn't make for a relaxed working environment.
So, the LSH & I are in a holding pattern right now - no home improvements, no vacations, just about no nothing planned until I see if I survive this first cutback. Let's just say, this is NOT how I expected life to be at this point in my life. That old saying "Man makes plans while God laughs" couldn't be truer right now.
