today came as a real shocker. i think i feel numb. i don't know what to feel. i had a premonition about this. but a premonition feels different than reality. yes, friends, if you've stumbled upon marie's latest blog, you would already have the idea that we're about to lose our jobs. hubby and the rest of our officemates are given 30 days' notice. call it retrenchment. i won't give the details but it has something to do with a new company owning the project we're working on. technically, they're still keeping me and two others but i don't know for how long, the rest has got to go. eventually, i may have to go, too.
now this is nothing new to me. i've had an experience like this a few years back, it was even quite more worse than this. i was so down and in denial at that time. we got ourselves wasted almost every night because we couldn't believe our company's closing down because we thought we were doing well. but it turned out that i was wrong. eventually, i had to move on.
today, i now realize we should learn to accept things as they are. there's no room for self-pity. we have a baby to raise someday. i am quite optimistic that things will get better for us soon. God knows what He is doing. this won't last very long.
if anyone is touched by this story, please get us a job hehehe. just trying to be funny amidst this difficult time.
