You'd think, you know?

You'd think I had something to talk about. I mean, crazy things have been happening. Like my job -- I might not have one anymore. They are "reorganizing" and moving my department to New Jersey. I might be able to find a place down here, but the ratio doesn't support it -- there are more than 70 of us looking to be absorbed into about 12 jobs. So in the meantime, I must look for a new job. I do have an interview (with my own company) for another position today, but almost everybody in my department applied -- so may the best person win. It'll at least get me used to interviewing again, which I may be doing a lot of in the next few months. A few friends are looking for places for me in their own companies (thanks so much, guys) and I'm out on Monster, but .... I'm starting not to sleep. It'll be fine, I know. But there's always that anxiety ...
I'm also going on vacation. A real, honest-to-god vacation. We're going camping again, in Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. I'm so excited it's all I can do not to look at a map everytime I'm home. I'll be gone Sept 3-11. Hoorah!
So you'd think I had stuff to talk about. But with all this in my head it just wants to bounce around rather than come out here.

Ugh, my job didn't work out either so I am also on Monster. You're the 4th person I know going through this. And they said the unemployment rate is getting better.

Liars!

I think the unemployment rates are better. For McDonald's & Wendy's.
So peculiar NJ, a few years ago they couldn't pay insurance companies to stay here and now...
Interviewing sucks. Good luck and don't let it affect your vacation.

Yeah, enjoy your vacation. Things will fall into place. We need people at my place of employment if you wanna move to Vegas, but I doubt it would pay you enough.
