Most of the time I try to keep things here on the blog light and happy, but the last post was a bit complainy and this one isn't going to win any awards for its optimism either. Just keepin' it real folks. Maybe next week I'll write about that unicorn I saw a couple of days ago...
The theory is that bad things happen in threes. Living it.
- My camera broke during the character breakfast that Pooh Bear was supposed to be attending but ended up as a no-show. Not a big deal, except for the fact that it's going to cost almost $200 to get fixed and I currently am cameraless. Hence no pictures on this here blog.
- Got a letter in the mail YESTERDAY letting us know that Jakson's therapy is going to be costing us over $200 more starting in TWO WEEKS. Not sure why they waited until now to let us know, but this could be a deal breaker for us, especially considering...
- Zak's firm let go 5 engineers from Zak's transportation group yesterday. Thankfully, Zak was not one of them. Yet. Ironically, we had our bi-annual "what will we do if we are laid off" conversation a couple of weeks ago* and Zak assured me that his firm would not be getting rid of anyone. Are we really living this nightmare again?
*On a more positive note, if a layoff does come our way, we feel very prepared for it this time. Since our last stint with unemployment, we have saved a three month emergency fund. I am feeling very thankful at this point that we put that aside.
P.S. -Never ever wish your husband to be like Mr. Darcy (a gentleman of leisure). Why did I not learn this last time??? Wishes do come true, but not always the way you intended.
