    up on the vc. Had just 2 tabs of nyquil left.

    Traveling is tricky! When I was working (out of work for two weeks now) my boss was the traveler and he would come back and BAM, be down for a week. No matter what he did. He traveled internationally and he was always very healthy but man, those flights would knock him out. So I feel for you.

    I've been running kids around for my sister-in-law since the lay-off so I'm sure that's where I picked up this little gift! Funny thing is I loathe children...

      So sorry to hear about the layoff - I have been consulting for the last year and a half or so; just accepted a job offer but we have to transfer for it.

      Just off-the-cuff thinking, but if you are the chauffeur du jour for your sister-in-law, maybe she could pick up some meds for you? Two nyquil's may not be enough to get you through the night (though I hope they do!).

        package and may head out of country if nothing pops up in the next six months. It was a long time in coming. I was working in the construction industry (HR) so I've been through this a couple of times now. Becoming a pro at this point. What I've learned, though, is find a new industry! Construction, while lucrative, is just too unstable.

        Ya know, your right about the sister-in-law thing. On the upshot she's next door (oh, yeah, my family is that tight)!

        •  Very glad to hear you were (0+ / 0-)

          at least somewhat compensated in your layoff. My thoughts are with you and I hope you find something, anything that is a good fit for you. Hang in there -- I almost transferred with an ex-pat package myself, but decided to take a local (i.e. U.S. position) instead as our daughter just started college here.

          Best to you yawnimawke (most sincerely)!
