Okay, so I just dodged a major bullet...at least for 90 days. My company managed to find work for me and my four coworkers through the end of September, each doing different things. I myself will be helping the Engineering Directorate write (internal) proposals that will, hopefully, result in more work for the Center come the new fiscal year. Mind you, I might be going through this soap opera again in three months, but for now I can pay bills, and I consider that a blessing and a win.
Stay tuned. No doubt more drama to come.
