Bracing Ourselves

Finally, quiet.  Steve and Kennedy are taking George to school and Stella is sleeping.  Steve took the day off.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe he needed the time to gather his thoughts, work on our plan or just needed a rest.  I think we could all use a rest right now, some time to recuperate. 

We're handling the job loss pretty well so far.  I'm not sure it's really sunken in.  It hasn't really hit us yet.  Our finances are the same as they were a week ago.  We've been so busy setting a plan in place so that when it does hit us, maybe it won't hurt too much. 

It's hard to think that after Friday night, no one is allowed to get sick or injured or get a least not until we can find affordable insurance for 4 kids.  Over the last few years I've heard so many stories about families who lose their jobs, and their children have no insurance.  I always listened to these stories and felt so thankful that it couldn't happen to us.  We're safe.  We're secure. 

It seems that there are quite a few things we took for granted.  We are fools. 

This is my first time linking up with Heather.


  1. I've been there and done that. When we took in our 4th future adoptive, at the time foster child with special needs, it began costing me money to work, so we decided I would stay home. Three months later, my husband was laid off-ack!!! For one year, we were a no income house, well sort of. It was scary and stressful but we made it and we are stronger for it. I hope your experience is a shorter but equally rewarding one:)

  2. I already commented on your previous post, but I'll just say I hope things look up fast. And I can absolutely relate to what you wrote.

  3. thank you, everyone. i know we'll be fine. it could be so much worse!
