Dh and I were living with some friends of ours, things weren't going well so we told them that they needed to leave. Dh was making enough money to support us and pay the bills with no problem.

Our friends moved out on the 22nd and we were so happy to have our own place and for ds to get his own room. Well, in the couple of says since they have been gone we decorated ds room, bought new furniture, decorated the house... We did everything! It felt lime home.

Dh got a phone call from his job this morning at about 7 (he was supposed to go in at 8:30) telling him that the company is under a huge downfall and that they were laying off 13 people..... And dh was one of them.

He lost his retirement, 401k and a few other things he had last year when the economy went down. They aren't giving him any type of severance package and they laid off all of those people effective today.

I don't know what we are going to do. We are going to have to leave our apartment and move in with family. No one around here is hiring (I've been looking for a job for several months). We spoke to our landlord and she agreed to take a half payment for Augusts rent but we have to be out by the 15th unless we can come up with the rest of the money.

We both planned on going back to school and getting our lives straightened out and now everything is at a stand still. To make matters worse we have been ttc So there is a good chance that I'm pregnant (it would be to early to test).

I just want to scream and cry and break things. I have no idea what to do.

Any tips on places that are hiring in the Orlando area would be great..... Or any other legal ways to make money.

I'm So stressed, things were looking up for us and now this happens.
