I just wanted to kinda update you girls. I haven't on been on as much as usual, because my family is going through a really rough time. Sometimes as much as you try to carry on as normal, it's just too difficult. You all know about the struggles we had before when DH lost his job and how elated we were when he got the new job. Well, that joy was short-lived. His new boss met him at the door this week as he came in and said he had his last paycheck for him. He was so shocked, as we all are. He was the best tech the ever had. They said that is why they can't keep him on. They claim they cannot afford what he is worth and the other techs were upset by the special treatment he received. It was s small family owed business and DH always worked for large corporate companies in the past so he is much more certified and faster, but they felt he "rocked the boat", so to speak. I am beside myself and do not know what this means for us. All we know is that we barely got our footing before it happened again and we have to move out of our house in the next couple of weeks. We don't even know for sure where we are going. We have never had to deal with anything like this before and never expected to have such a hard time when we moved back to Indiana. I am terrified for how this will affect my boys. We know that we have to take them out of their school and stay with family, we just don't know where. (I have had a home of my own since I was 18 years old...this is ridiculous!!) I am sure we will be on our feet and in a house by winter, before baby comes, but this is just so bad! I can't believe it. I am so depressed. I cannot even put it into words. I had a panic attack yesterday in my car and had to pull over for almost a half hour because I was crying so hard. I still can't believe this is happening to us.

I just emailed Rachel to withdraw my application for host. Things are not stable enough for me to take that on right now. And that sucks too. Everything sucks.

Oh, Lia. I'm so sorry to read this. I couldn't imagine having to uproot my family especially with a new baby on the way. Praying everything works out sooner than later for you all.

Thanks girls.

For today, we are just trying to get my anxiety under control. I do not usually have issues with it anymore, but under the circumstances...it's pretty bad. I've had pain in my left arm and shoulder since my breakdown yesterday and am pretty scared for me and baby right now. If it doesn't let up by the end of the day, we may just go to the E.R. I hope that isn't necessary.

My landlord feels really bad about it all. He actually hugged us and said a prayer for our family when we went to talk to him yesterday. Somehow, I know it will all be ok. It just may take some time.

Oh Lia, I'm so sorry you're going through all of this I wish I lived closer to you, I wish there was something I could do to help I hate that this is happening to your family. I know that everything will come together for you, I hope it happens quickly. PM me if you need a shoulder! I've dealt with awful anxiety too, no fun. Xoxo

Thank you girls. I appreciate you all so much.

We have made a lot of progress today, trying to make a plan and get things figured out. We have talked with the kids (sugar-coated of course) and they are excited about moving, so that's a plus. My arm has stopped hurting. I am just exhausted and have a really bad headache, but I'll take that over the anxiety and feeling like I'm having a heart attack any day.

Here's to staying positive and staying strong! Thank you for all the prayers. They are much needed.

I am so sorry this has happened to you! Rocked the boat too much? UGH! I'd be so upset with them. They could have kept you guys on longer to let you make arrangements to find another place to go. Something is better than nothing!

Take lots of deep cleansing breaths through your nose and try to relax. I know how hard it is to do when you are in the midst of so much turmoil. I will be praying for your family!

I totally agree Ashely. Justin was so blown away. He even asked if he could stay on and work a week so we could pay rent for September and told him we have kids and the guy did not budge. It's just one of those times when you hold your family extra close and face the storm. I am madder than a hornet at that guy, but it is out of my hands. Thank you for the support. I don't know what I would do without you guys.

Sounds like someone hired him and couldn't pay. The other employees shouldn't have known what he was making or the perks involved. I'd say there is something more going on. GRR! Not any less frustrating.
