There is always a lesson....in everything.
From this clutter nazi, I applaud Mr. Fix it for keeping things going at home.
I hope he finds a fulfilling job soon.

Smalltown Mom

I know things will look up. Meanwhile, maybe he can make dinner?


Yes - there's a lesson in everything.
I've also become part of the statistics over the last few months - and am mustering courage to write about it.

Manic Mommy

I think the shock for us was/is how long it's lasted. Andy's been out since 11/30. We figured December was a given but that things would move along nicely in the new year. My lesson has been that snowstorms, Mid-East unrest, Japan and God knows what else all affect this fragile, global economy more than we care to admit.

Welcome to Q-2. Fasten your seatbelts!

It's never easy when the pendulum swings your way and smacks you off-kilter. Your attitude is so positive in the face of it.


I would say that your husband ROCKS!
Glad you are getting a lot of sub work. That will help with the finances and you're getting lots of experience. So, do you know ahead of time which school, and what you'll be teaching? My mom used to sub, when I was younger, and it made her a nervous wreck, but maybe it is different now?


That's wonderful that your husband and you have both worked so hard to make it all work.

My MIL subbed once her children hit school age and seemed to really like it.

Good for your husband. He is meeting a big challenge the right way.

And good for you - what a contribution you are making, both in the life of your family and that of your students.

Slow Panic

I think we are all getting the idea that things are safe now. Yet I know several people that have recently been laid off.

We do need to remember there are very real people behind all those statistics.

Thinking of you.
