my husband came home from work today with news that he's been laid off. he's been working for a small, family owned music sales & repair business for almost a year (before that he was in the army, was shot in the knee and honorably discharged) and i guess the business is about to go under anyway. they can no longer afford my husband.
after hearing this news i suddenly feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. my husband's not as "in charge" of his business as a husband and father of 3 should be. he said he planned on filing for unemployment tomorrow but i know that really means next friday so i applied earlier this evening. as far as him finding another job, that's nothing he's going to rush to either. its not that he doesnt care its just his mom did everything for him so he's a procrastinator. for those of you wondering why i cant go to work, well putting 3 kids in daycare would cost more than i would bring in. and we can't work separate shifts either, legally he can't be alone with my kids for 2 years. i know im digging myself in a deeper hole here but it was one of those CPS cases that turned a bruise into abuse, in a nutshell. so anyway he can't stay home while i go to work.
then there's the issue of the flea problem in my house that my landlord refuses to take care of. we planned to move into our new house next weekend but now that we have nothing in this town, we're pushing the move to this weekend. so now there is the added stress of that, although i really do want to get out of this place though. the fleas are terrible!
so tonight i feel very de-personalized. im kind of sitting here with a blank look on my face, kwim? i dont know what to do or where to begin, as far as packing and the whole job situation. luckily our tax refund just hit the bank, it will be enough to get us through for a little bit. i just want to cry =( but im emotion-less at the same time.
