They call me Senator Franken

Coleman finally gave in to the inevitable in Minnesota, and Al Franken has a seat in the Senate.  That might be the best news I’ve heard all day.  Our contract (for the project both of us work on) was up for renewal and out for bid (or whatever it’s called).  We found out today that we didn’t win it this time.  At worst, we’re both unemployed in three months.  I don’t expect that to happen, but you never know.  There are possible opportunities (that I hope to find out more about tomorrow) at our company, and of course, we’ll be applying for jobs all over the area during much of our free time.  Three months feels like a long time today, but tomorrow…it’ll get closer every day.  (Funny how that works.)

    Oh man, that is really, really not fun. I’m so sorry! Though if it helps at all, I can commiserate…my executive director sold all our publications to a publishing firm up in Philly and my last day at work is July 17. It remains to be seen if I will be able to work for the Philly firm remotely, so I’m madly sending out applications too. So not fun.

    Oh, Margaret, I’m sorry. And it’s coming up so fast! When will you find out if you can work remotely? Even if you don’t want to stay with the company, at least that would give you more time to find the right new job. Good luck with your search!
