Don't fret, I haven't jumped yet

Yes it has been awhile since I posted. There wasn't much I had to say. And there wasn't much desire to say or do much of anything (and as I type this, I'm listening to a commercial for cymbalta on TV).

Thankfully, I have good news. Mike got an offer from 1 of the 3 jobs that he landed second interviews with all in the same week.

It came right at the same time the rejection letter from unemployment came.

The same day that as I drove home from work, I contemplated driving my car into a telephone pole.

Let's just say I had a guardian angel, and I couldn't feel more thankful and blessed.

The last time we went through unemployment, it lasted 6 months. This time? 4 weeks.

Yes, I'm thanking my lucky stars.

I have never been more frightened in my life. And I have never felt so much like I wanted life to end.

So, he's already gone through orientation and will be starting training tomorrow. It'll be an adjustment for all of us, not just because he's been home the last month, but also because he'll likely be away from us more.

It may take me some more time to get completely back into the swing of things... Don't get me wrong, I'm feeling a heck of a lot better, but I'm still not entirely "back". Thanks for being patient with me...

Glad to hear that Mike was able to find a job, especially with the way that the economy has been headed lately. Sorry to hear about the unemployment crap though...that sucks! Is he going to try and fight it?

I'm so glad for you. I know it's not a perfect solution, but it will help. I worry we are just one step away from losing it. Too scary
