And enter the month of July... it is going to prove to be a challenging month indeed!
In the next few weeks I may discover if my job is to be axed or not :(. Under the new State Government that was recently elected, any positions they consider "non-front-line" are to be reviewed and considered for retrenchment. This is to reduce the Public Sector workforce by over 20,000 jobs so that the State can start to balance their budget. [I personally support the idea of paying our bills and being in the black but think their method of doing so will prove to have a rebound effect in the long run with 20,000+ (not counting all the temp & contract staff that have lost their positions already) joining the unemployment rolls]
On the Lets-look-on-the-bright-side - I am very good at what I do (financial management/purchasing for Departmental needs) and have a good work ethic, so there is a high probability I can find another job at my level if any are offered. [or perhaps the Powers-that-be actually DO value knowledge and information and might leave some of the Library operating.... I can only hope]
In happier news - I have heard from one of my Adopted Soldiers. He and his troops are coming home earlier than first expected and I am so very happy for them all. If you feel inclined - please say a small prayer that they all make it home safely - only one more month to go until they are back on USA soil.
My other two adoptees remain "Silent Soldiers" for now - meaning I have heard nothing from them. And that's okay - choice of reply/contact is *always* theirs to make. My Newly adopted Marine is about to receive his very own Water Balloon Launcher so I hope it makes him smile and smile.
And now I am off to sleep - long days at work ahead of me. I am trying to get a project started and hopefully finished before they do any radical changes to my position - plus... can't hurt to look keen can it?
