Good news & not so good news

Hi all,
Well, I found some flooring today and its affordable. Thats the "good news"!!!

The "not so good news" is that my SO received news yesterday that he is officially laid off. :(
This is not the thing we wanted to hear- heck, no one wants to hear that. Sales are down and he is/was the warehouse /dock guy, so they decided to make the cut there.

We are both really bummed out about it. I know there are 1000's of people all over the country that are dealing with their own lay-offs.
I heard yesterday on the TV news( about an hour before he got the news) that the country's unemployment rate is at its highest in over 26 years.

(President Obama , where are the changes you promised us? I hope that these economic times aren't it.)

I dont have a big home with a big payment to go with it.thank goodness!!
I drive an old 1993 explorer with peeling paint, BUT its paid for.
I can't begin to even imagine those that have lost home, vehicle and other things.
I know we will get through this. We have been down before and came back for another day. :)
If it wasn't for the fact that weeks ago we already tore up the old flooring , I sure wouldn't be buying any new.

I did go to the store and pick up some batteries. Hopefully, in the next couple days I will have some great pics to share. Plus, I am working on some super duper goodies for some swaps. :)

We are having BLT's for supper. What did you fix?

Oh, what am I thankful for? A cozy little home WITHOUT a payment, a good head on my shoulders and blogging friends to talk to. :).


  1. Oh, no - I am so sorry. Have you thought about medical transcription? I understand some people do well doing that at home, and you certainly already have the skill set needed. Just a thought. I hope things start looking up for you very soon!

  2. I'm sorry to hear your SO got laid off..These are hard times believe me I know. All we can do is Trust God... I will keep you in my prayers.

  3. I am sorry to hear about the layoff, your right you are in a better place then alot of other folks, but it still hits hard. I pray you will be blessed during this time, God is so Good you will see all He does for you and more as you lean on Him!! Take care!!

  4. Kim I'm sorry thats a hard blow, hopefully it won't be for long, and hopefully he can at least draw unemployment I will say some prayers for you and yours.


  5. Sorry to hear it...dh lost his job in mid september...so we are right there with you...but we do have a house payment and 2 kids in college..and a truck payment..God is good and so far we are fine. So far no chance at a job...but we are hoping next week we will see something different. Dianntha

  6. Kim, I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope something comes quick for your family!
    Take care, Kimberly

  7. Sorry to hear that Kim. But don't worry things will work out. Just have faith. Take it from me. What happens is meant to happen but in God's own time.


  8. This news makes me so sad Kim. I will be praying that your hubby's lay off is only temporary. Remember when God closes one door, another one opens.
