They could not extend the furlough. They are putting four more people on furlough with the possibility of six more in the near future.
So I'm now officially out of work.
I'm glad it's settled, but I'm not exactly sure what I want to do now.
I'm 55 and have 32 years of architectural work behind me doing everything from ATM installations in bank drive up booths to a terminal at LGA and JFK Terminal 8. I've worked on banks, a prison in DC, corporate offices, computer rooms (remember those?); I've laid out aircraft parking for San Bernardino and done studies at SFO. I like the airport work, but there isn't much out there.
I'm tempted to just give it all up and do something "safe" like Best Buy or Radio Shack but I don't know if it would satisfy me.
I guess I'll just have to think about it for a while ...
