And the shoe drops...

We thought that when the company buying out Mike's current company sent him to orientation, we were in the clear. Such a relief because even though the job took him away a lot, the salary was an amazing blessing that had us on the road to being debt free and home owners. It's the least stressed we've been in years.

Well, all good things come to an end, I guess. He was one of 10 let go last week. They were the most recent hires. That doesn't really make us feel better, idiots. Why put them through a paid, 8 hour orientation and THEN give them the boot? Dumb!

The 2 people over him wrote excellent letters of recommendation and gave him a few leads but in this economy it's still scary. Please pray, cross your fingers, whatever you do that something comes soon. I feel almost guilty asking for that when sooo many families out there are dealing with long standing unemployment, but with another baby on the way, I'm a lil stressed.

Thanks, friends. :)


  1. My husband was jobless when I found out I was pregnant with Mia and it was SO scary. I won't say all the standard "cliche" things to say, because when you are going through it, NOTHING makes you feel better (except another job opportunity), so please know I am praying for you! :)

  2. prayers going up...you can do hard things, everything is going to be juuuust fine!

  3. Prayers for you!!!! So scary. :(

  4. Same boat for us. Hope we all get jobs SOON!!!
