I ran the numbers (again)

Rumors are swirling (again) that there might not be enough client work to sustain our little team through the end of the year.

So I looked at my accounts and did the math and see that I have 7 months' worth of money before I'd have to touch to my retirement accounts (which would be very unwise and something I totally don't want to do until I retire).

I don't believe things are that dire. I think our client is just trying to get their resources in order on their side before we send any more work over the transom.

On the other hand, of my three unemployed friends, not a one of them saw it coming. So, I expect, if it happens to me it will be when I least expect it.

So I just keep periodically running the numbers! This Recession sure is tiresome. I'm ready for it to be over. How about you?



  1. YOU BET!! but it is a good idea to keep watching the employment sites. also, to keep an open mind on another field of employment other than the one you are in now.
    Anytime you are over 50 the employment is harder!
    Hope your company stays strong!

  2. I hope it is just your client getting their ducks in a row. I finally hit the point that I am no longer the last hired (making me the first fired).

  3. It must be stressful to work like this. It's been a while for you in your industry.
    10 years ago, who would have thought it would get this bad?
