And so our family starts a New Chapter...

With every big event of life, we all turn to a "new chapter!"

As you read in the post before this husband was laid off last Monday. This was a huge shock for us as we had no warning and no anticipation it could happen even though, yes, he did work for one of the Auto companies having trouble. It is just one of those things where you just don't think it will be you.

It is okay though...we have all accepted it (including my husband...whom believes in working). We don't worry, we know all will be okay. We see it as a blessing and an exciting "opportunity" for what is yet to come. I know, sounds "lame" but it is true and how we feel. No room to sit around and feel sorry for ourselves.

As the old saying goes "when one door shuts, another door opens!" (or something like that)

Thanks to our "penny-pinching" ways...I believe we will survive just fine until my husband finds a new job.

I wanted to make this post so all would understand the lack of posts I have made over the past week. Life is currently a roller-coaster but is slowing down momentarily.

I enjoy your blog and have been getting some great tips. Good luck to your husband in his job search. It feels like all across blogland people are getting laid off.

Thank you both! I appreciate everyone thinking of my family and myself. My husband is very lucky to get a job so quick in this market.

I hate that people all over are getting laid off left and right. I have high hopes that the economy will turn around as I have read the prediction to be the spring of 2010. Man, I hope so.
