so, i'm the latest casualty of the economic downturn.

it happened last friday. i felt like it might be coming - work has been scarce, so we've been trying to save rather than spend on the house over the last few months. charleston architecture firms have been hit hard, so it may take a while to find another position.

in the meantime (downtime?), i'm doing a lot of soul-searching, which is a slippery slope, to be sure. but not a topic for a house renovation blog... :)

Keep moving and good luck.

This may be an opportunity to try something else for a bit. Dabble part time in an unrelated field?

Sometimes, misfortune isn't as unfortunate as it seems at first.

There may be opportunity in all this.

We're all in the same, semi-leaky boat. My advice? Try to remember that some (Ok not that many) projects can be done for nada and work on those to stay sane.
Good for you for anticipating it and saving what you could. Chin up!
