I took down my last post... I reread it and it sounded like I was saying bad things about my soon-to-be-previous employer. Honestly, I understand their decisions, and really don't harbor any bad feelings. I do feel a little overwhelmed and sad sometimes when I think of all the people whose are facing job loss and/or unemployment right now. However, that does not give me an excuse to say things without thinking.
Anyhoo... I'm going back to my promise not to talk about the whole job situation for a while.
P.S. Thank you for the thoughtful comments on the post I took down. I definitely appreciated them. You guys are awesome.
