Just a year ago, I wrote about the pleasures of fall and the pain of watching smart, interesting, hard-working colleagues leave the company where I work, due to layoffs. It's the same thing this year. We've had lovely fall weather (including the soft rain, today) and I am mourning the loss of good people from this company. It's frustrating to be in the same position we were a year ago - repeating what I had hoped would be over for a long time. I teeter on the edge of a venting and blaming diatribe, but I will keep myself from going there. Unfortunately for the DH, he gets to hear most of that.
