When life hands you lemons...



I've been handed a lot of lemons lately. I'm doing my best to make some lemonade.
That's why I haven't blogged lately.

Just before we left for vacation, my husband learned he will lose his job at the end of this month. We didn't see it coming and we're still sorting out what we're doing next. We kept it secret from my parents and the kids and put on our game faces. We had a wonderful time, put life on hold for a week. But since we've been back, reality came knocking.

The uncertainty has been weighing heavily on my mind and I know I haven't been myself.

As a result, my creative mojo has gone on hiatus the past several weeks. I've spent a lot of time reading and just lurking around on the computer to let my brain just rest a bit. I've sat out the past few Dreamgirls challenges and taken some time off from some MOSD. Thank you to my team mates there for being so supportive.

Well, it's late here - I worked the evening shift and needed to just decompress for a while. Stay tuned for some DT projects, coming soon.

Sorry to hear the awful news Debbie, losing a job is difficult, especially when there are little mouths to feed. Big Hugs to you as well! I'm glad you have a good outlook and as you said have tried to make lemonade with those lemons. I pray that things will turn around soon for your family. Take care!

I've been on the lay off circuit several times so know the fear of it. Here's hoping that something good comes along this spring/early summer for your husband.

You've been on my mind for the last couple of weeks girl! This is certainly a difficult time for you and I hope your dh finds work soon. This economy is not fun and is affecting some very good people. Big hugs coming your way!
