Did I mention that my hubby has been working with some friends to start their own business?
Oh, that's right. I didn't. It was a secret. Very hush hush. You see, we live in a small town, and we didn't want the word getting out before we were ready. We didn't want his employer to be able to use it as a reason to let him go before we were ready, as they are "downsizing" more and more as the weeks go by.
Well, a mistake was made, and they found out, and they did indeed use it against him. They let him go without any kind of severance package. We knew that it was coming eventually (hence the starting-their-own-business), but we weren't prepared for this.
We love the little town we live in. We want our kids to grow up here. We are tired of moving every 2 or 3 years. We are going to make a go of it and try our hardest to stay here in this house that we love. Hopefully his new venture will take off out of the gate! But the next few months (at least) are going to be really tough around here. I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared. Any advice or positive thoughts you could send this way are very welcome. I'll keep you updated...
