Had to vent - stupid economy

Recommended Posts

Okay, I am sorry but I just had to get this off my chest so I do not bust out into tears at work.


My FI lost his job last week and I think he company are total A**holes. They let go of half of the staff and in CO they do not have to tell you why. It just stinks right before Christmas and while we are planning our wedding. Ughh!


My FI is also a student and is 6 classes away from graduation and that job allowed him to work and be student and now he will probably have to work 2x as many hours.


Then the wireless card on my lap top was not working so I took it to "big name" store and when I arrived it would not turn on at all. Big Name store basically told me it was the mother board and I was SOL.


I am extra sensitive about the lap top issue because I saved money and bought it Aprl of 07' and it was my first computer and basically the first nice thing I bought for my self. Now it is garbage.



Sorry thanks for letting me complain.


I should not be wallowing, a lot of people have it way worse. I will still be able to have a beautiful wedding, might have to cut out the OOT bags for favors, but it is a small sacrifice when other people are losing their homes and fighting cancer.


Okay I am done now.


Sorry for the typos, I was on a rant.

So sorry you are having a bad set of events. It just plain sucks!


I am also so sorry your FI lost his job. This economy does blow.


I hope the rest of holiday season goes better for the both of you.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
