Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!
Today is our last day of United Way at work and boy am I glad. Two weeks of constant committee work. UGH!! Everything goes to a great cause so I am happy to be done. This week went by pretty fast and I am about to head out of here and head home for the weekend. I love the weekend!

B came up to my work today to bring me lunch and to eat with me. He is such an amazing man. He told me that last night at work they posted a notice that they are laying off 50 people.. He couldn't wait until his shift tonight to see if he was one of them so he called HR. YEP! B got laid off. The HR lady was very upset because she just hired him and everyone loves him there. He is doing an amazing job but unfortunately they said that they couldn't predict the economic crisis. That pisses me off. They hired 20 people a little over a month ago and now they are letting them all go. Are you telling me that a month ago you didn't know that our economy was in the toilet!!! This was a great job for B and he was excelling. They said that are going to try and get him back in the spring.

I have to say that I a little freaked out with the baby on the way and with the new house but I know that we will get through it. God doesn't give us more than we can handle even if it doesn't feel like that at times. There are people that make it with far less than we have and I need to be thankful for what we have.

I hope every one enjoys their Halloween. Post pics of the kiddos in their costumes. I need a smile :)

Sorry to hear about Brent's layoff. He is at least the 5th person I personally know who that has happened to THIS WEEK. Things are really, really shitty for everyone right now :(

Oh dear!! My heart, love, and prayers go out to you both. This economy really is bad right now and I agree with the two things you said, there are a lot of people out there with far less means to live with and God will not give you more than you can take as it is at these times you need to trust him more and that is HARD to understand right now.
Love you both, baby & Gizmo!!
