News from work: My last day will be January 4, 2008. Of course, the 1st is a holiday, and under the new company's rules, I am immediately eligible for a sick day, which management is encouraging everyone to take. There might be an optional holiday, too--we'll see. I do have to be there the last day to collect my severance, evidently. So, I am officially a short-timer! We are taking a cruise the week before Christmas, AND I must use six more days, because this new company (which will be my employer for four days) will not allow me to carry over those days. Ok! I do not mind this at all. I will not have to work very much in December. The Crappy Jewelry Company (for whom I work) will be out of this facility by the end of November, and then we will be looking for work, anyway.
Good riddance. And no, I do not know what I'm doing, yet. I will have 17 weeks' severance plus one week's vacation to cash out, so that will provide some income whilst I job hunt. Staying out of warehouses will be a major goal.
We didn't have many trick-or-treat visitors, but Halloween's still a big thing with adults, even if the Red Hot Strawberry Ball was discontinued this year. This is how the Halloween costume ads went this year:
Cat news: so far, so good: I don't know if it's necessarily the result of the Feliway spray, but Serena has not peed on the carpet since I've started spraying. However, the real sign of success is to see her rubbing her face in the carpet, since I am spraying it with cat facial pheromones. This may take awhile.
