TODAY IS...........................................

MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy birthday to me!!!

Well like I said today is my birthday and I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's not a MAJOR birthday(unless you consider 37 a MAJOR birthday) or anything but it makes that much closer to 40. There I said it. Anyways, Husband likes his new job so far (first week, we'll see about next week) and the kids go back to school on Tuesday. YIPEEE!!!!!!!!! My middle child isn't looking forward to school starting (mostly the getting up early business) but as I told him time and time again, he has to go!! Then the computer will be mine for the most part.

Slowly stitching something for my middle child as he requested, but again, it's going slow.........

Husband got a job!!!

Well, let's say my life is calming down some. Kids are registered for school, school supplies and clothes are bought, next to getting haircuts- they could go tomorrow is that was an option (sadly, no.)

My husband went on a total of 3 in person interviews and had 2 phone interviews and accepted a job in Sturtevant. Pay is good, health insurance will be the downfall here, it's a small company, and the commute is a long one for him (like 45 minutes one way) but they liked him during his interview and he won't have as much free time as he would like but it's a job in my book.

Other than that, everyone is good. Middle child went to a Brewer's game today and must have brought them good luck as they won!!!. He will be pleased when he gets home.

Thought I would update.

LIFE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Normally I would like to talk to my husband when he calls from work, but today he calls (just before noon) to tell me that he got laid off. Just about a year after he gets this job, he gets laid off. SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!!!! Anywhoo, now we are getting 2 more paychecks then we have no more money coming in. AGAIN, THIS SUCKS!! So hopefully, since my husband is still getting messages from recruiters, this maybe short-lived anxiety I'm going through (let's hope so!!!!!!!!!!!). I'm so glad I got clothes, school supplies, and some other much needed stuff when we had the money. Here's the sad thing, we have NO SAVINGS to back up on. AGAIN THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So any good thoughts would be appreciated. I'll keep you updated as I know more.
