Last Friday, I received a signifcant shock when the division that I had been part of at AT&T for the past 5 years was eliminated. My feelings went all over the place, from relief to despair as I face the prospect of finding work at age 55.
Many questions go through my mind. Am I up for it? Will someone want a person of my age? Will I have to move (again). Well, I do have many friends both within the community as well as outside the community. So, once again, time to "saddle up" and get on with it.
I think I will post updates here as I go through this process to document my steps and to share my thoughts and feelings as I move from "surplus" to employed.
