Well, I hate to be bringing up unpleasant things on the blog. I like to keep things light and upbeat on here. But the last 2 days of my life have been completely crazy!
There is trouble with Brian’s new job. The owners have cut his pay and his hours. And quite frankly, we were barely making it before, now we are in serious trouble. They have told him that they don’t have enough money coming in to pay his salary. And they weren’t nice about it at all. They were quite matter of fact and uncaring about it, actually.
So…we are back on the job hunt once again. The bad part is that the only reason he agreed to this job was because it was paying just slightly more than unemployment. Now the unemployment is no longer an option and he’s making drastically less than what it was paying him.
AND – my car broke down. So, we had to have that repaired. Luckily, my uncle knows a great guy who did the work for us for next to nothing. So, it was much cheaper than we would have had to pay, but still a huge blow to us.
AND – we had to make an emergency room trip for Katie. She had an accident on her bike and ended up with some symptoms that scared the crap out of me. I won’t go in to details other than to say it was one of those accidents where she landed on her bike seat extremely hard…
Tonight as Brian was tucking the girls in, Katie said to him, “Daddy, we’re not having a very good life right now, are we?” And he asked her what she meant. And she said that with his job problems and not having enough money that she could tell that we were having hard times. It really hurts when you have to hear your child say that.
So, I am probably not going to be posting for a few days. I want to be sure and take a lot of extra time in making sure that my kids know that we do indeed have a very wonderful and blessed life, even if sometimes it may not seem that way.
