Sometimes life sucks. It has been a hell of a week.
I'll start small. Federico had a cold. I had three crowns put on, and the dermatologist zapped off much of my face. I looked like raw hamburger at first, but have healed to over 20 brown scabs...NOT attractive.
Last Thursday, Brad was laid off from his job. He was given 5 weeks severance and 2 weeks vacation pay. We can get a Cobra for health care. He has been busy applying for jobs and unemployment. I am trying to increase my hours of work.
We are trying to stay positive. We've had a week to deal with anger, crying (me) and panic.
The good news?
There ARE a few jobs out there.
We are still going to Italy for Christmas, as that was completely paid for.
Everyone laughed at me when I had my Christmas shopping done, and almost all presents wrapped by Halloween. Thank God! Christmas will happen.
We'll be OK for a couple of months.
We are going off to Escondido after school today for an Air Force-San Diego football game this weekend, and getting together with Jane, Ken and Casey for the boys to meet. I will get to spend the weekend with our Godchildren Casey, Sarah, Noah and Gabe.
I'm taking a few days off my blog. I am looking forward to a rainy weekend with friends and loved ones. We are trying to stay positive. I'll be back next week!
