Just When You Think Everything's Going Your Way...

Life throws you a curve ball...

Yesterday my husband got laid off due to budget cuts where we work. Seems like we were smooth sailing along, I was getting back into the groove of working out, we were excited about our future...and suddenly, without warning, we got this bomb shell dropped on us.


But, I'm trying to stay positive, you know, seeing the glass half full? And I have many reasons to be that way. Thank goodness we sold the house and I make enough money that I can cover all the bills under my paycheck alone. Also, Aaron should be able to qualify for unemployment no problem.

This could very well turn into a big oppurtonity for us. He isn't just going to look for jobs around here, but nationwide. I am also going to start looking (hope my HR doesn't read my blog). There are many places we'd be interested in living, and there are only so many times in your life you can change the state in which you live.

After all this happened yesterday I fell off the wagon for a little bit. I had 3 pieces of pepperoni pizza. "Boooo! Hssssss!" Then I went to the grocery store and got some vanilla ice cream. But, I am so thankful for this, Aaron looked at me and said, "Let's not use this as an excuse to be unhealthy, let's do the opposite."

So I still had the ice cream, but only one serving of it. And I mean the REAL 1 serving that is like 1/4 of a cup!

This morning I felt much better, though I didn't get up and do the elliptical, because let's face it people, Aaron and I both needed some hug time.

So, life is crazy. I'm trying not to feel so weirded out that I stop making progress. I'm excited at the prospect of changing up our lives! And wouldn't it be great if I could be a healthy, maybe even thin me when that happens?

Hope everyone is doing well.
Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh, I'm sorry for the tough news. I know stuff like that can rock your world.

    But... you guys are taking this news, and looking at it as an opportunity. Wow, that is fantastic! You are so right, too, about how it might be the very thing, a catalyst, to have a great adventure and move somewhere new and exciting.

    And how sweet of Aaron to be supportive of you when you were vulnerable with the ice cream. Kudos to him...he gets the Good Hubby of the Year Award! ;-)


  2. Oh man, sorry to hear that. What a bummer. It sounds as if the 2 of u are being as positive as possible - and that's huge.

  3. It really sucks when someone losses their job - it happened to my sister this Oct. out of the blue as well. Falling off for a day - in my mind - is ok, as long as you get back on soon!

  4. Hope you're hanging in there. I know what it's like. I'm getting laid off next month and have been looking for a job for over a year. But I believe things happen for a reason. I just don't know what it is yet. So I'm hanging in there. Just have to keep trying!

  5. Thanks for sharing, Nowadays most people are facing some eye sight difficulties because of lack of nutrition and carelessness which ended into poor eye sight and sometimes ended into blindness. The surgical repair of congenital eyelid ptosis can have many forms and one of them is the eyelid plastic surgery los angeles.
