Good luck, Warped9!
I was 16 years in an aerospace company, then got laid off. Well, I was on stress leave and Hubby was being recruited, so I volunteered--but I would've been among the chosen anyway. Yeah, it was weird to be unemployed, especially since I had made it through EIGHT YEARS of layoffs and 4 companies--the original, which got sold, and then sold, and then partially sold to a subsidiary.
That was 13 years ago. I am currently a homemaker, taking care of Hubby and the house, so he can focus on his stressful job--and us, of course. That's after going back to school for my BA and then JD.
