I'm Bummed....

  1. Hubby just heard he is being layed off from his job. He will be losing his job, that supports me and the children. And allows me to go to school. I have just sent away for my new nursing license, before I knew of the lay-offs. I have been home with the children since they were both born. Oldest is 3 years old. Youngest had severe disabilities and I have had difficulty finding anyone to watch her while I run errands let alone keep her for daycare. She will start pre-school (special ed) this fall. Now I don't know if I'll be able to continue in school or not. I'm so stressed.....and to add to it, youngest one just had surgery to straighten her strabismus, just today. Still sleeping of anesthesia(sp). Anyway had to vent.....I should also add I'm changing my long distrance...anyone have MCI's phone number. LOL

    Thanks everyone!!! Rustyhammer- I only wish I could make as much as he does for him to stay at home with the kids. LPN's average about 13$/hr and he is an MCSE and making 60,000 plus had excellent benefits.

    How very sad. I do feel for you. Wish I had a magic wand.

    Hope things work out somehow, someway. Please try not to stress.. it will only make things worse all around. I know that's easy for me to say.. please forgive me. But sometimes we just have to simply have faith that things WILL turn around.

    Big warm, hugs to you .:kiss
