Yesterday I was home with Morgan and my sister's kids. It was about 1:30 when I heard the garage door open. Strange, Aaron shouldn't be home for another 5 hours. But in he comes saying, "I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I get the rest of the day off." It was here that I interrupted with my correct prediction of the bad news. "Did you get laid off?!" Zounds! And thus it is.
Aaron was asked to attend a meeting while at work yesterday. After the meeting he went and packed his things and went home. The bad kind of meeting. So we spent the afternoon together and took the kids to the park. But now comes the serious work of finding another job.
Fortunately Aaron is a skilled graphic designer and web designer/developer. There are a lot of freelance projects out there for just that, so until he has a regular full-time job, there will at least be some sort of income. As it stands though, the next month or two will probably be very financially tight. I blame this on myself. When it's my turn to say the family prayer I often include a petition for help to become better at managing our finances and such. I guess we are about to get a huge lesson in it! I hope we learn well and learn quickly and can move on.
