I work till 4:00 and today at 3:55 there was an impromptu department meeting. The dean has confirmed that there will be no cut in staff or cuts in the budget for my department.
Can you believe it!!! If I could have kicked up my heels, I would have. My co-workers and I lit up with smiles at the announcement. We are pretty fortunate indeed! After the e-mail of Dec. 23rd, it was pretty worrisome and this news was fantastic.
So...........if you'll excuse me, I am going to go relax with a couple of knitting needles!
