Never what you had planned...

I had planned on a more lighthearted entry today, until I got a phone call from my mother. First off, an entire department at our office (we work together) was made redundant yesterday. People who had worked there for 25 years. They have always valued loyalty above all. It would appear that is no longer the case. While I want to be a full time mother and housewife, the unfortunate truth of the world is that we cannot afford that and I have to work part time. If they can wipe out an entire department, where does that leave me? I am scared for my job security for the first time ever.

She also told me her close friend passed away last night after a battle with cancer (melanoma). I just dissolved into tears. I wasnt close to her but with my starbaby's birth/deathday tomorrow, and the job thing...well it all seems too much.

Oh and it's my mothers birthday today.

Happy Birthday Mama.


  1. I am terribly sorry for your loss. I too feel awful whenever the anniversary of my mom's death comes around. I know it's not the same as to what you've experienced. Thanks for stopping by my blog. ~ICLW~ (Stress Free Infertility)

  2. So sorry hun :( No words, just know that I'm holding you up.

  3. I'm so sorry. I lost my job this past year (what timing!) so I know how it feels to worry about work and income. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow especially.

  4. I am so sorry, what a horrible day. I hope you are hanging in there.

    Best wishes, I hope things start looking up soon.

  5. Im so sorry! What a crap day! Hope it gets better soon.
