    Yesterday, my husband found out he was being laid off. Thankfully, he has a good network and already has an interview tomorrow, and should be getting decent severance (they haven't worked out the details) but still the stress and anxiety while this all gets sorted out. 10 years ago this week, was the last time he was laid off, 4 days after we moved to Colorado after having permission to do so. So this is just bringing up a lot of unhappy memories. And oh yeah, today is the 3rd anniversary of losing my Mom.

    So if anyone has any gifs appropriate for this situation, feel free to post them.

    So very sorry to hear you're going through a tough time, but it sounds like there's a promising transition in store for you. I lost my dad a couple of years ago and I feel your pain, I'm going to start the gifs with this one:

    Bumping this up...

    My husband has a signed, acceptance letter for a new job! Starting the Monday after we get back from Hong Kong. We were a little worried he would have to take a drop in pay, but it turned out he didn't. Plus, more vacation and a few other new benefits.

    It's such a relief to have this settled before we go. And basically, the severance package money is now fun money. I told DH, that because of how all of this went down after 10 years of dedicated service, that if he found a job quickly, we could use a bunch of it to buy the car he has always wanted (Mini Cooper). For the first time in our life, we'll own two cars (he does need one to drive to the new job, he's always used transit before, we're just choosing the "fun" car instead of the "responsible" one). 0

    I'll get to go to the Epcot Pin Event, and I need to figure out what pin goodies I might want to splurge a little on.
