It happened.. I was let go from my job.

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to hear about your job, I can't imagine what you must be going through. I have been lucky so far, I work for the State and we are looking at furloughs next fiscal year but there have not been any talk of layoffs in my office (cross-fingers). Many of my friends have not been so lucky.

 

Its been a few days just thought I'd see how you were holding up, espcially with the start of the new week and not heading off to work on Monday...

 

Let us know if you need anything.

Shannon, I to was laid off one month after my wedding. I have been off of work since October 2008. My job was not nice enough to pay unemployment until the severance ran out. At first I was kind of happy and excited because maybe it was an opportunity to move to NC or SC. I decided to take a little vacation to St. John, VI, then I started taking classes for Graphic Design, then I took a part time job working with H&R Block. All the while I was sending resumes and putting in applications. Never did I even get one interview! It is very rough out here. The DH and I decided this is not the best time to move to a state where we have no family nor do we even know anyone. So I decided to start looking for a job. I was in IT but I don't want to do that anymore. I was starting to get a little panicky when an opportunity landed at my feet. I am now in the process of becoming half partner in an upscale consignment shop. I just love working in this store! No stress, I can work 3 days a week and still go to school. Because the shop is still relatively new, I will not really be getting a salary from it yet so I still need to find something part time, but I don't think that will be as much of a problem as finding fulltime employment. Everyone is right. When one door closes, another opens. Keep your head up and stay positive. I went through the depression and gained 20 lbs. So don't be like me. Take a little break then treat your job search like a job. Good luck to you.

I am so sorry to hear that you were laid off. I went to church today and one of the things that I took away with me today is that, "As one door closes another one will open." With lots of prayer what lies behind that new door is going to be wonderful. You are in my thoughts and prayers....

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
