    :(

    My DH works for a non-profit that depends on a lot of government grants.   There's a new sheriff in town (Republican governor) and he's cleaning house.   We're on pins and needles about his job right now.   And more than his job, it's sad that the people his non-profit helps may no longer get the help.   Individual and corporate contributions certainly help, but that can't sustain the whole operation.

    Hang in there!   Maybe there will be other opportunities for you to do that same work within your organization - - or maybe this will be the push that gets you into your dream job.   That's what happened to me when I got laid off 2 years ago.  :)

    ((hugs)) and ~~~vibes~~~

    I'm hoping the WCS would be they ask me to work parttime.  That wouldn't be too bad and would cut my daycare costs.  I haven't told hubby yet.  I don't want to stress him out since there really isn't much to say right now.  Boss isn't even in the country until next week.

    Maybe I can show someone in the grants department my fantastic rack.  Maybe that will help.
