So, the economy issues have finally hit home. My husband was given the option to quit school and take on full time hours or resign from his position. He chose education. Without his degree he'll be stuck where he was at forever. So, this means that we are down to one income. It is a little stressful. Unfortunately, I am an emotional eater. Fortunately, I only splurged on some M&M's. This kept me within ten calories of the high end of my range. I guess I have learned a few lifestyle lessons. Food doesn't solve any of your problems. I'm just glad that I didn't feel like binging out like I use to. I'm just kind of sad that he's sad. He really like that job. Plus we are going on vacation in a few weeks so it is kind of hard to look for a job knowing that you are going to be leaving for ten days. Such is life. If you believe please send prayers for everyone in this economic situation. It seems really far away until it hits home. I pray that we are all going to be okay. God Bless.

    Things go up and things go down. But the one thing we can all always count on is that good things are always JUST around the corner!

    I lost both my jobs, and my mom was laid off from hers. We're now working off one income instead of 3. But we're a family and we stick together. That's the most important thing in times like these.

    Best of luck!

    I'm so sorry to hear that. That's a horrible decision to have to make. I will definitely keep your family in my prayers.
