It’s my blog’s birthday. One year ago today, I went to blogger.com and hit “create blog.” 381 posts later, “Create a post” on Blogger is prominently listed in my favorites on iGoogle, and I have over 173 favorite blogs in Google Reader that I (try to) read daily. Blogging and running have become such a huge part of my life in the last year… but I’ll save most of that reflection for some December 31st posts. I don’t really feel like posting much more today, because today pretty much sucks.
Boyfriend’s company is laying off another 10% this morning. Last time they finished all the cuts by noon, and he texted me to say he was okay. But I haven’t heard from him yet, and I’m really worried he’s going to be in that 10%.
In other awesome news, my company is going to be cutting 10% in early January (apparently 10% is the arbitrary number every company picks). I’m working my butt off (on Sunday, I worked 1 PM to 3 AM) to make sure I’m not in that 10%, but it doesn’t really matter – it’s a lot of politics, luck, and factors out of my control.
These are rough times.
