So sorry for the news. It is so frustrating when bad things happen to good people. Everyone has already said it- you are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

Crewsk, I couldn't stop thinking about your post and wanted to tell you something. A few years ago my son had a job he didn't like at all. The pay was good enough that he was afraid to take the risk of trying for another job. He called one day to say his company had downsized and he was out of a job, but with a good severance package. I said to him "so, what is your problem? you hated the job, some of the people weren't nice at all and you wanted to look elsewhere, so now you have the opportunity, but with pay." He told me he hadn't looked at it that way. He got right to work as though it was a job - to find a job - In a few weeks, long before the severance package had been depleted, he had found a much better job with a much better company with much better pay - and now they are paying for him to get his Master's degree. I know that you believe also that as one door closes, another, usually better, opens. I'm certainly hope that we hear that something great has opened up for your dh very soon. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays with your family.

Gosh darn it...this year has been a real pill to swallow...
My Husband was just laid-off 3 weeks ago too, lucky his brothers company hired him on last week (a lot less in pay, but a job none the less)

Crewsk, all of us here will be missing and thinking of you and your family. Know that it really is true, that things happen for a reason.....And the best is yet to come.....

Godspeed to you and your Family Crewsk, we will miss you, and pray for a better day right around the corner.

shannon, I love this. Better than my old standby - one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

Thank you all so very much! Well, the day after I made this post hubby got a job working for Confluance Watersports building kayaks. The pay is much less than at his other job, he's working 12 hour shifts (7am-7pm), & he had to work Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, on the bright side, he works 2 days & is off for 2. But, we're getting by. I'm going to call our schools district office when school starts back next Tuesday & see if they have any positions open for substitutes. That'll help out some & I'll still be able to take care of the kids when schools out. I feel really blessed to have so many wonderful & caring friends! I love you all very much!
