That title is bad I know...but it's been what's going on around here.

A week ago Tuesday I suddenly, and somewhat unexpectedly, lost my job.  I was called into the conference room and the door closed behind me.  I broke out in hives.  I was told that they needed to upgrade my job and that they had hired a CPA who could do my job and the hired out CFO's job and they couldn't afford to keep me around.  They told me to take an hour, clean out my personal affects and bye bye.


Sh!t, I just lost my job.  What am I going to do?

On top of all this is the drama going on with Hubby's family.  Dad had knee replacement surgery and was in rehab.  Mom finally fessed up about chest pain and shortness of breath and was found to have clogged arteries.  A week ago today she had three stents put in.  Sister went down to help out and ended up in the ER with severe abdominal pain and then in surgery that night to remove a cyst on her cervix.  Hubby flew down on Monday and is finally flying back home today.

We have pulled A out of daycare three days a week and G is out of the am and pm program at school and is taking the bus every day.

A wears me out.  Completely.  A needs my attention  And she whines......UGH.  However, I apparently wear her out too but she went to bed with no problems yesterday and slept until almost 8am this morning.

Now I have to try to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.  UGH, I'm 41 and have no idea.  I'd love just to be able to stay home thru the summer....and then figure something out but I don't think that will fly with hubby at all.

I'm tired of taking a job just to make money.  I want to enjoy what I do and make money at it.  I need to be creative.  But what do I do?  UGH!!!!!  WHAT DO I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP!!!???????


And now I'm trying to find out about unemployment since I am still being paid thru the company thru April.


  1. Oh sweetie, I hear you. With the matter of a week and half my world has completely exploded. My husband and I have a wonderful marriage and we have three beautiful children. However, work is a different story. I left a horrible job last Tuesday for the promise of this amazing gummy bear and rainbow job on wednesday.. only to find out that it was 10 times worse than the last job. At the same time, my son was asked to leave daycare because of a biting incident that had occured. So within 24 hours, new horrible job and no daycare for my son. I called several day cares, no openings. Told one daycare yes, then found another and told them yes. Then found out second daycare was kind of blah so called the first daycare and told them he would be back there... so much confusion. Haven't eaten in like three days STRESSED STRESSED STRESSED! Finally coming down of my stress coma and trying to work things out, but within that short amount of time, it is hard to focus on anything other than frustration. It is definetely hard. Between my three children, my accounting job, and LIFE I want to scream sometimes even though I love them all I had this ideology that when I grew up I would be raking in the money by the ton and the school system would be accomodating and not end its school day at 2:35! It's rough sometimes, you just have to bite the bullet and get through it. For unemployment, you should still be able to receive it. Just check with your local office, not sure how it works when they are still paying you beyond your term date. Hope that helps, and thanks for listening. I understand some of what you are saying and am glad that I am not the only one out that has developed ulcers from trying to lead a normal stress free happy life lol.

  2. Why not teach. You're around kids all of the time and it would give you the flexibility that you crave. Summers off. Holidays off. Winter and Spring breaks. With small children, it should be a serious thought.
