    That sucks. I’ve been in that situation before a few times. Twice, I was an “unlucky” one. I hope some brightness comes to your day soon πŸ™‚

    Homemade truffle! My bf’s parents gave us all early X-mas presents this weekend b/c no one’s going to be in town for the real day. I got a box of exocticly flavored handmade truffles. My favorite so far was a maple flavored one with chocolate from Costa Rica!

    I hope everything gets better – sounds pretty depressing.

    So far my office hasn’t had to cut back and I’m hoping we won’t…

    Aww, sorry your day hasn’t been the best. How awful for people right during the holiday season. πŸ™ I’m glad to hear your job was safe.

    That soup sounds interesting! I need to go to World Market next time I’m at my mom’s. I don’t have one near me.

    Gosh, I can’t even imagine losing a job during this time of year. Thank goodness you were spared, though! Hopefully your day gets better from here.

    Thank goodness you survived! I worked for a major corporation for three years and survived THREE massive layoffs. I couldn’t handle the stress so I had to find something else!

    But with our economy now, I don’t believe anyone has a safe job!

    Hang in there!

    I’m so sorry! I’m glad you weren’t part of the cutbacks! Unfortunately the only thing we can do right now to help things is to spend as we normally would! We have to fuel this economy to get it back going! Hope your night is better than today!

    Man, I know how awful it feels to see your coworkers go – or not even see, sometimes! At my company sometimes people will just disappear! Ugh. Hopefully you’re able to take it in stride and keep taking good care of yourself even though you’re bummed. We’re here for ya!

    Ooh, I am sorry about the work stuff. I hope everything works out for you and those who were let go.

    The soup looks tasty and sounds like it would be great over macaroni!!!!

    I’m so sorry to hear about the downsizing at work. I’m sure it is hard to see people that you have gotten to know laid off. I guess be thankful that your job is still intact. What a Monday!! Hope the rest of your day turned out okay πŸ™‚

    Sorry you had such a rough day. My husband has experienced the same thing twice in the past year and a half at work- even when you “survive” the cuts, it’s a sobering experience.
