My df got layed off yesterday. He also got a new job yesterday. Its doing seismic, he used to do it when we had our 1st dd. He will be in a different state for a period of time (not sure on details yet) and then have a couple days off. The money is wonderful and just what we need right now, but I'm not 100% on board. We have a 2yr old, a 1yr old and I am 38 1/2 weeks preggers with our last. I dont live close to my family or anyone for that matter so I will be a single parent, all by myself, with no help while df is away. I just need some encouragement!
Here is the best encouragement I can give you...I have a 5, 3, & 1 yr old & left my husband (due to abuse) when my youngest was just 8mths old. I had no job, no car, no money...only the clothes on my back & our personal belongings. If I can do it & survive 9 mths later...by having a home, business, and money you can do it too!!

It takes just as much energy from one owns self to look at it as a positive way as it is in a negative way; I think I would choose positive and learn from it. Choosing the positive will also benefit your children because when they see mom happy they will be happy as well. It will also make your job easier. It helps if you are organized to help things run smoothly. I wish you two lots of luck on some great adventures.
