We're having a pretty rough couple days. My hubby manages a restaurant, and well got laid off 2 days ago. It's devastating. That was a really good income for us, now we're resorting to WIC, food stamps, and medicaid while we look for another job.

There is LITERALLY nothing hiring here!! I mean, lots of part-times, but that isn't going to cut it. He even went to a Sprint store to sell cell phones, he took the assessment and FAILED it?! I'm not sure why, I think because when they asked him the least amount he'd want to be paid at hourly he said 12-14hr. I mean come on, even that would barely cover us! We're at a loss, and he is so so upset about it all.

He is a graphic designer, so he wants to open a business doing that. So far, it seems like our only hope. He has one big client he's been doing it for for years, so hopefully we can reel in more clients. Until then..... who knows.

I also had my prenatal appt today. Which was pretty boring. The heartrate of little bean is 148-153bpm...But the d*mn midwife won't schedule my ultrasound until NEXT appt which is in a month !!! I begged her, but she won't do it because she wants to make sure everything she is looking for is formed during the ultrasound, and since I am only 15 wks she won't do anything short of 18wks. BLAH.. Whatever!

Sooooo not so happy update

But I have to say, the guacamole is making me pretty happy, LOL

Wow Leonara I'm really sorry you and the hubs are going through that! I know the struggle tho...
When bf moves here, he has to get his job game up otherwise who knows... I sure cant support the both of us for too long...

I hear you on the ultrasound too... I dont get mine until 21 to 22 weeks since the doc will be looking for other things as well.

Hope everything starts to look up for you!

I'm so sorry about all the stress that you are under right now. Hopefully a new job will fall into your DH's lap. You should have him go ahead and file for unemployment since he was laid off and he is entitled to it.

I'm so sorry. We had a really rough past year and each time I was knocked down, I kept focusing on us all being alive, healthy and together. I just kept thinking, I will always take these problems over the alternative.

Prayers & positive vibes going your way!!!! Hang in there!

I am so sorry but everything will get better, it has too. I was in your place a few months ago and his old job took him back. We almost lost the house but things got better and they will for you too. There is jobs out there, you just have to keep looking!
