Down this Road Before

November 11th, 2011 at 04:57 pm

DH is again nervous about his job. He's still a contractor, but he's been at the same place for more than 10 years. They put a hiring freeze on several years ago, and for a long time, he was the only contractor there.
But some of his regular tasks have been reassigned to employees, and he's feeling nervous. We talked it through last night and rather than worrying, we decided he should talk to folks. That's happening in a couple hours.
As usual, I'm bracing for the worst-case scenario. I've been super-freaky about grocery spending and utilities. But I did get my small challenge list done for yesterday with nice lentil soup, pumpkin bread, clean laundry, ebay listings,spelling-word quizzes--but no toy vouchers have yet to surface!

    I was going to do a post on DH's work rumblings! Blech....we've been down this road also....for like the last 8 to 9 years... rumors start flying around about shut downs, layoff's and furloughs. DH did have a 3 week furlough several years ago but nothing since, thank goodness, but the rumours have started again. Fingers crossed that all is well with your dh's works!

    Thanks for the good wishes, but it doesn't look so hot there. I'll update tomorrow, but I'm thankful we have a head start before the layoffs begin.

    Ugh, what a tough time to have things like this worrying you. Still, it does sound like you are staying ahead of things, and I think that the decision to talk with folks and see what is available could lead to some decent options if the worst case occurs. I hope that you have some insurance of peace of mind while things sort themselves out. Good luck!
