So bummed out!

This has been a horrible week for me!!!

I got into a real huge argument with a bunch of people this past Sunday and it is really bugging me that I got so angry…

I got my official “lay off notice” from my job this week. We were expecting to get a huge gov’t contract but it ending going to another company and they let just about everyone go. So as of Dec 31, I will be unemployed…

I have been applying for jobs but no luck so far. If I don’t find something really soon (within the next 3 weeks) I will have to move out of my house as I cannot afford to pay my rent on just my adoption subsidy. I have no clue where we will go and I will lose my $1500 deposit because I will have to break my lease….

Even worse there is will be no Christmas presents for my kids this year. I just can’t spend the tiny little bit of spare cash I have on things that aren’t necessary especially since I only have 3 more definite paychecks coming in and honestly they are already spent… and it’s too late to get into most of the Christmas charity programs…

There’s really no point to this post.. I’m just so sad 🙁 and I need hugs and lots and lots of prayer and a job yeah I really really need a job….

    YOU HAVE HUGS AND PRAYERS FROM ME…you have been an inspiration to me more than you know (you actually are part of the reason why I decide to stop procrastinating about adoption)…you are a blessing to a lot of people and your blessing coming soon!!

    I am sorry about your job but you will find something soon…keep your faith..I know it’s hard but you will get through this..

    You always posted about Freecycle, I am sure you can get some toys for Xmas…of course they won’t be new but it’s something..they are young and they will be happy with anything…

    If there is anything I can do, please email me and I’ll do what I can…I was thinking about doing an “angel” from the angel tree..maybe I can send the gifts your way…wont be much but I wouldn’t mind…

    Sending prayers your way, with a big hug, too!

    Everyone I know is leaning on someone else right now, many of us are in the same boat.

    It has been rough for me, too, but many of my freelancing colleagues are booming. It has encouraged me to really put myself out there — and it’s paying off. The jobs are trickling in.

    Are you on LinkedIn? I have no idea what your skills are… but I really encourage you to reach out right now — even as a consultant. It’s clear that you’re a go getter!

    Wow… I’m so sorry. I was just thinking about you today. You are in my prayers. Is there anything you need that I can help with?? Honest – let me know! Are you still at the same address you were at a year ago?
