My Day

Monday, May 20, 2013

Simple title for a not so simple day. Hubby came home today around noon, carrying a box. He'd gotten fired. I've spent the rest of the day trying to hold it together for us, job hunting, hand holding, and trying to be brave.
My husband is the breadwinner in the house. I'm trying to run my own business, but like Nathan, it's in its infancy. So we're both putting out job applications. And hopefully one of us will land something fast, cause as of right now, there is NOTHING coming in.
I don't understand what's been going on lately. Ever since Easter it seems like not much can go right. Correct that - it hasn't been going according to our plans. I'm assuming that means there's another plan, that's just not ours. I have to believe that. I just really wish things could sort themselves out without all the hard stuff. This is big and bad and scary.
Does anyone know of any web design positions or system administrator positions in the Chicago area?

    Being fired feels like the end of the world - even when you hated the job, saw it coming, perhaps know it had everything to do with the company and nothing to do with you personally. And then you, as his wife feel so helpless, probably with a wild mix of emotions. I've been in both of those positions over the years.

    Let me encourage you to be kind to yourselves and each other. Yes, you will have to find ways to make financial ends meet, ways to pick yourselves up and find new directions. Hearing that there is a larger plan for your lives is probably cold comfort at the moment. But take deep breaths, take one day at a time, and know that life will get better.

    Peace and love to you both.

    Sorry to hear about your husband's job. It is scary, but I honestly do believe that when one door closes, another opens up. My husband and I have both had job situations that didn't work out and we ended up being better off. Things do happen for a reason. In the meantime, just try to be positive, and do what you have to in order to make it through this.
