I did not see it coming. I woke up today with a full time job with a company that I had been with for 10 yesars, very happy with my job ... able to work from home doing something that helped a lot of people, doing something I loved.... and then the ax came out of nowhere.

I still do not know what to say, I was told it was a $ decision, they had someone in-house who was able to do what I do for less and she was in house.

So now, after my move into the new place and all...comes a job search. I have one lead, for a company based out of Birmingham AL. that a friend owns, that if all goes well maybe I can nab a job from and work from home with....time will tell.

Just when things get calm and everything looks like it is smooth sailing, a thunderstorm hits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
