Bad news ... I got laid off yesterday from my job.
If you've been a reader for any length of time, you know how devastating this news is to our family. My husband has been an out-of-work pilot for over a year and has been staying home with our 2 year old daughter. So, my job was our only source of income and health insurance.
And now that I am 5 months pregnant (and showing) it will be very difficult for me to find new employment and more importantly, new health insurance for this new baby coming in January.
To say I am a little stressed is an understatement. I probably won't be posting a ton this week as I search for a new job. If I make any shopping trips, I'll post those but I am not going to write up "My Favorite Deals" list this week.
UPDATE- DON'T WORRY! I WILL DO "MY FAVORITE DEALS" NEXT WEEK, I'M JUST TAKING THIS WEEK OFF TO GET MY BEARINGS. SOME OF YOU LEFT SOME COMMENTS EXPRESSING SADNESS THAT I WOULDN'T BE DOING THEM ANYMORE AT ALL, SO I WANTED TO CLARIFY. I NEED THOSE FAVORITE DEALS NOW MORE THAN EVER!
Sorry to be a downer, but this is why I coupon and stockpile! So, when the rainy day comes I can at least continue to feed my family!
