Update: We still feel pretty down about the whole thing. Really put a dent in the christmas spirit. I haven't felt like decorating or getting the elf out. But I had an interview for NAC classes and found out I can get my permanent substitute teaching license after paying 120 in various fees. Both will take time but would bring in work in the new year. He's been talking to people he knows. We'll make it. Just got to get over the hurt and anger. He was talked into this job...was told there would be growth and he wanted someone to eventually take over. So DF left a good job to join this company. If he went back to his old job it wouldn't be for the same salary, he'd be considered a new employee and the pay difference is huge. Just trying to get out of this depressed funk and back into my usually favorite holiday.
