Well, I got official notice that I have 60 days to find another job within the corporation or suffer the slings and arrows of involuntary lay off. I think I'll probably get another position, but it will mean a major lifestyle change for us. The only positions available are in another city about 20 miles away as the crow flies (an hour as the car crawls in commute traffic). That means that I won't be seeing my husband every day for lunch, and I will have to drive quite a bit, which makes me a little nervous.
If I don't get another job, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I'm only 52, (too old to rock and roll, too young to die!), and I can't get my retirement until age 55. Besides, I've been in harness for over 30 years, and I'm not really ready to be turned out to pasture yet.
Well, it's another chapter. What surprises me is that with all this stress, my Parkinson's symptoms are very much under control. Could it be that I just needed a little shakeup?
