One more post before I'm locked away...

So, two hours before I get on an airplane to work in San Jose for a month, my boss called on the phone to tell me I'm laid off. The news wasn't surprising - the project has been badly funded for the last year. And last week my boss said cryptically that several employees should come into work this morning before flying out. Still, it was one of the humiliating experiences of my career.

I am still going to San Jose, though possibly for only 3 weeks, not 5. Lockheed Martin will pay my salary possibly through August 1, and all benefits transfer if I find a job with another business unit as a coder. So, while I am San Jose, I will go house hunting and check out the job market.

In the last month, I have lost my 14 year relationship, my house, and my job. I think I need to go crawl in a cage for a while and think.


May new experiences that bring growth and fulfillment arise from these challenging times.

Respectfully,
