Feeling Sick

No, not in the health/medical sense.  Today, we were blindsided and stunned to find out that DH will most likely lose his job.  His boss is pretty crazy and extreme and is very doomsday in general.  Admittedly, he made some minor mistakes, but as a whole, the health of the company is good and they are headed for success.  But being chicken little, she sees things as negative and disastrous.  This is especially tough (aside from baby being due in 8 weeks) because prior to this year of employment, DH was unemployed for a year.  And at his age and stage in his career + the shitty economy, it's not so easy to find a job. 

I'm trying to stay strong for him and I do believe in my heart, that things will work out one way or another.  But, I had to have an outlet for this... it's still really a huge bummer.  And right now, I'm also adjusting my mindset to go back to work full-time after maternity leave.  The original plan was to go back 0.6 time. 

Sigh.  I'm trying to be thankful and grateful for what we have like our health, each other, etc.  Plus, there is a horrible forest fire in Colorado (about 40 miles away) where people are losing their homes or they have no idea what their fate will be. 

So, things could be worse, but my heart/mind remain heavy.  Here's hoping things turn around...


  1. Oh man, that stinks! I hope he finds another job quickly that suits him better, but it's hard to be forced out of a job - will he be eligible for unemployment? At least the economy is a little better in Colorado than the rest of the country. Are you referring to the High Park Fire near Fort Collins - I have a friend who lives near it who had to evacuate - Hope y'all get some rains out there.

  2. I hope that things soon improve for you and your family.

  3. That's tuff not to stress out about. I hope it all works out for you all!

  4. Praying things will work out for the best for you guys.
