stupid economy

Last week my husband was on his way down to his company in Florida when he was told to turn around and come home, the company was being investigated. He turned around, and we sat on pins and needles for two more days. Then word came last Wednesday that the entire company was closing, as of 1:00 that day, and employees would be paid through that day. Thank you very much for your service. We were stunned.

Needless to say, that has been at the forefront of our minds for the last week, as Brian begins the job search. Unfortunately there isn't much for him here, so we may have to quickly expand our search. We'll know more in a couple of weeks if we hear from the few companies he has applied to locally. So, in the meantime.....

We have finished painting the moulding in the dining room, and the entry way.... moving on to the library next. I've also started back to school, and need to finish the hemi newsletter (I haven't forgotten it, I've just been in limbo).

We appreciate all of the kindness and concern sent to us through people offering to help get Brian's resume out, and the support shown by friends and family. We live in a great community, and have great friends across this country. We are fine, and we'll continue to be fine, we just wanted to say thank you.
