It is official

Yep, we are jobless. Thankyou to my fellow blog friends for the kind words on my last post I really appreciate it and it keeps me from going insane. My husband and I have been talking alot about it and realize we aren't the only ones around that are having this problem. We do think it will be a problem to find a job in his field only because so many people are getting layed off. So I guess our plan for this moment is for him to apply for Employment insurance and him be the stay at home Dada for a while and for me to get back into the work force. I am going to try to talk to my old boss first and then go from there. I am unable to make enough to support the family in the long run but will try to pay the bills in the meantime. Have alot of phone calls to make today. Downsizing some of our bills like phone and tv and whatnot need to remove all the bells and whisles.

I think you are right Dave, this is a door closing, a learning lesson and will open another door of greater opportunity. Hopefully sooner than later though lol. I spent this last week upset and stressed and inside with a bad flu/cold along with my son being sick. It was a big old pity party and I only went running twice and my food intake wasn't the best. I just got back home from out of town and and my cold is breaking up so it is time to snap out of it and get back into gear.

I weighed myself this morning and I am up 3lbs from my original goal which I am happy with, I thought it would be more. My husband is home now so I have no excuse to not go running so I am out the door today 100%.


  1. Sorry to hear it. It's a tough job market out there. They just did a round of cuts here right before Christmas, that was only round 1. Sometimes I think it is better to go in round 1 than wait for the axe to fall again.

    Get out there and run, your stresses will go away and things will work out in the end, they always do.

    In the meantime, keep your head up, you got friends and we are all here for you :)

  2. I am so sorry to hear about that. I hope that you guys will be able to get back on track soon. Enjoy your run today! I find it is an excellent way to relieve some stress.
