I haven't been a very good co-host lately. I haven't been feeling the greatest lately, but I got a huge kick in the butt yesterday. I found out that as of October 31 they will be closing my plant I have a severence package, but I MUST work until that date! I'm due in November sometime, so I'll be literally working up until the moment. I just hope I don't go early LOL! I'll still qualify for mat leave, but it's really discouraging to know that I have nothing to go back to. I have been there for 6 years, and was very comfortable, it wasn't the best job, but it paid pretty decent and it's also where I met my DH

I might be a bit scarce...just in a bit of a funk.

HUGS Stacey. I know exactly how you feel. The same thing happened to me when I was pregnant with Sydney.

At the time it was hard for me to think it was a good thing but once I had time to think about it I realized everything happens for a reason.

Just an FYI though, since you are getting a severance that means you won't get your mat leave benefits right away. Depending on the amount you get they will figure out how long that will last for you. My severance was decent but not a ton. I had to wait 6 months to start getting my mat leave benefits from the time that I had Sydney.

If you have any questions just let me know.

Thanks Jen! I know about the severence thing, as soon as I got home from work I called Service Canada and asked LOL! I'm considering putting it into an RRSP though...it's something I've wanted to do, and it's a pretty good chunk of money. We'll see!
