Oh man. Yesterday was rotten. My husband called me mid morning to tell me he had been let go. This is the third time in the past 2 years that he has lost his job. And we have maxed out our unemployment benefits so we are hoping he finds something soon. After the shock of it wore off and after the initial tears dried, I realized that we are lucky. Not that the timing is ever good to loose your job. Especially when you have 6 mouths to feed. But we just did our taxes and will be getting a decent tax return. Imagine if we had spent the tax return on all the things we need to fix up on our house and then got the news? That would have been awful. At least we found out before any of it was spent.
I am sad though. I think of all my little DIY projects I had planned. I hope this doesn’t affect my blog too much. I will just have to get even more creative I guess!
I know we are not the only family to be affected by this crappy economy. Many of you are in the same (sinking) boat. Fingers crossed for all of us that things get better soon.
I don’t pretend to know what it is like for a man. To have the weight of being the bread winner for the family is bad enough when you have a job, let alone when you don’t . I know it is harder for him than it is for me. When he got home I hugged the crap out of him. And then I started quoting one of my favorite movies, “You is smart, you is kind…” and he finished it with “you is pretty” and we just started laughing. ( it suppose to be “you is important” but he remembered it wrong. He laughed cause he thought I was going to call him pretty and I laughed cause it was wrong :P )
I am going to take the rest of the week off. I need to sit down with my hubby and make some plans for the future. I will be back here Monday.
Love you guys!!!!!!!
