Yesterday, Don came home with news that the economic crisis has finally hit our household! He was laid off! Oooo-vay!!
Really, I should have seen it coming. His hours have been really sucky the past few weeks and when you live really simply (and pay check to pay check) in the first place, not getting 10 hours of overtime pay every week, is noticeable! But, I kept hoping it was just a dry spell...and, well, I hoped wrong!
So, now "we" are without a job! Ido have one wedding client I am working with, so I have a small (tiny) income coming in from that for a few months. And nothing in the hopper so to speak...
So, what are we to do??? Cry? Panic? Totally freak out?
That is how I feel, like throwing a party. It is totally weird.
Yesterday, I wrote up on my "to-do" board this:
I think we have been in a bit of a survival mode and not doing enough creating... Yeah, sure we've been crafting and creating "stuff" but this is different. You know the difference when you are really living and thriving in life, versus going through the motions and just surviving.
Well, time to start thriving again. I feel awake and happy and peaceful. I feel like we are creating magic!
