Oh man.

As of right now I live a comfortable life.
My income well surpasses my bills & spending.
And we have both Dave & my income to live on.
Everyone knows double incomes are the best.
That may change soon.

USBIC is the company I have been working for since January.
They're based in DC
I love my job.
I have the flexibility of working from home.
I am provided with an amazing salary.

There is so many details in many different directions that I don't want to try and unravel the story for you. Basically, USBIC, which was founded in 1933 may be closing down.
Well, it's probably 95% sure that they will.

I just got off the phone with Kevin, the President, and he said "if you find another job, take it. Come Monday I think we will all be looking for jobs."

Which means, yours truly will have to find a real job.

I don't know where life is going to take me. will be okay.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. I bet with your credentials and experience you won't have any problems finding something as equally great.

Your optimism is refreshing and you're so right. Everything will work out!!

Ah! I know that can definitely be scary...but always remember WHO is in control. I'll say a prayer for you now as you begin a job hunt.

When I first started reading I thought you were going to say you were pregnant.

I'm sorry about your job situation, but I am confident you will find another.

Hang in there.

Why do I have a funny feeling that you are going to be just fine?

You are witty, you are smart, you are nice, you are poised ... you are everything any recruiter would dream of.

You are a WINNER Megan!!!
