We are a sad household today. Peter came home from work today and he won’t be going back tomorrow or any day after that. He was let go from his job and I honestly can’t believe it. I am still in shock. I am angry and upset that they would do this now, right before Christmas. I honestly don’t know what to do. I can’t even imagine what Peter is going through. As he is the bread winner of our family, I don’t know what we are going to do for money. Thank goodness, we have some savings, but we really don’t want to blow through that. Plus, we are leaving for our Disney vacation in two weeks. What horrible timing for this horrible thing to happen.
I am already back to work once a week, but that can’t keep us going. As my maternity leave is up in 5 days, I called my boss today and asked if he could give me any more shifts. I am available for anything I can get. I hate that it has to be this way, but we don’t really have a choice. We have bills to pay and children to support. This sure will be an adjustment and I hope it doesn’t last too long.
Peter is going on the job hunt tomorrow, but who knows how long it will take for him to find something new. I hate being put into this situation. Life just got a whole lot harder.
I am so lost right now.
