The One Where I Spoke Too Soon

Add one or two more things to the list of 2009 happenings . . .

Last Friday (yes, a week before Christmas), I got laid off again. We knew this job wouldn't last, but they had been talking to me about keeping me throughout the new year, and I was hopeful that it would even last until February.

I'm not going to lie, it's been really hard on us this time. We knew money would be tight when this happened, but not this tight. Thank heaven we were able to pay off my credit card a week ago. I can't apply for normal jobs because the people interviewing me will for sure notice my belly this time around. So, I have been looking for temporary jobs, but unfortunately, there aren't many out there. I've applied with several temp agencies & even for unemployment.

Then on Saturday, I got my second sinus infection while pregnant. Although, it has been nice to not have to go into work sick, or feel bad for calling in sick.

I am grateful, though, that we know God knows of our situation, and that it's in his hands. I've said this before about other trials, but if it's going to be in anyone's hands, His would sure be the best hands to be in. Somehow things like this always work out!

Only 10 more weeks until we get to meet our sweet little baby!! Time has flown by. After the holidays we'll be putting the nursery together! I'll be sure to post pictures.

I'm so sorry about the lay-off. We definitely understand that jobs and money are tight right now... I admire your faith and agree that somehow, things just work out!
