I may be losing my job tomorrow!

My boss does not have a clue what it is about and his boss will not take any phone calls from him. His boss then sent an email stating that he cannot discuss the details of the meeting and all must attend. He must be notified by email only if someone cannot attend. WTF! They have been trying so hard to save money so it didn't make sense that they would hurriedly schedule meetings at hotels in several states for a meeting to tell us we are doing good. They have cut back so much that out trash is only picked up three times per week and the toilet paper is so thin you have to use an entire roll! Why then would they spend money to reserve hotel meeting rooms?
I think they are planning to outsource our services. We are onsite IT repair and provide exceptional service to our customers. When they have a computer related issue, we are right on it.
Just to be on the safe side, I started packing up all of my personal stuff in and on my desk. I have a feeling that when we are told tomorrow, we will not be allowed back in the building to collect our stuff. Since we are IT, they will not allow us anywhere near the systems.
This would be such a lovely wedding present as we have been married only 17 days. My husband (sounds funny) is only working part time and going to school. Ok, I know I am projecting but it just seems like common sense that this is a layoff scheme. In the past, they have had layoffs Tues-Thurs only.
I know that I will get about 6 months of severence pay, but man 21 years and this is my retirement gift?
I'm not going to worry but I will update you tomorrow. I should know by 5:00. Keep your fingers crossed that it works out ok.

Lets project that this isn't the reason for the meeting! I'll keep you in my thoughts. Please keep us updated.
