I recently wrote on Facebook, "It's funny how the universe opens doors when you're not even looking for them."
Well, yesterday yet another door slammed shut on our fingers. My husband was laid off from his job of 9 years.
I took the career leap I did based on the fact that his job was stable and we had NO indication this was coming. We're pretty scared.
This means no Alaska trip (I have to cancel 60 days in advance to get 75% the deposit back OR send a check for the additional $2000, which ain't happening...and the trip is in 64 days so that decision had to be made quickly). I'm more sad for Scott than for myself with this one...it was his dream vacation and I am so bummed that we had to make that decision.
The good thing is that my husband is brilliant. I'm not saying that to be nice...the man is literally a genius. So I am hopeful that he will find something soon, but until then, belts are tightened, we're canceling satellite TV service, and I'm going to work every minute that I have available to me in the next 2 weeks before I leave the old/new job for good.
To leave this positive, I started my new job yesterday and it is awesome! I love it. The people are fantastic. It's very fast paced and it's going to be tough at first until I get the hang of things, but there's NO micromanaging. I can really kick ass at this job.
I'm off to work...urgent care center today. 2 weeks from today is my last day there. See ya later.
