The weather is changing with the leaves. The forecast calls for a much needed rain tonight and the temps will drop about 20 degrees. On the way to work this morning a lite mist was coming off of Bagwell Lake and the trees on the south bank were highlighted by the morning sun. The color was stunning. I wheeled over to shoot a photograph and realized that I had left my camera packed in another bag from the trip. RATS!!! The first thing I did this evening when I got home was to retrieve the camera and put it in my backpack.
I was still buzzing from the trip when I got to work this morning but the bad vibes from the coming layoffs etc. put negative energy in the air that was palpable. I had lunch in the lunchroom but the topic kept going back to - "what are we going to do?" or "I heard that the mainframe group will be gone by New Years."
I finished my sandwich and escaped back to my desk early to listen to music on my headphones to try and salvage the rest of the day.
I'm not making light of the situation because I know it's very difficult to stay focused and have a good attitude when things seem to be headed south but there comes a time when you have to say - hey, hit me with your best shot and lets get on with our lives.
I bought a lottery ticket in California and I'm about to log off and go check my numbers. Who knows, I might not have to go to work tomorrow. "Yes, just take my stuff to Goodwill, I won't be needing it any more."
