The icing on the cake

Yesterday I wrote I was thankful that I at least had a job to get a flat tire on the way to...("at least until I got my pink slip"). Well, I didn't have to wait very long! Today at lunch, I was invited to the pink-slip-party line in the office, as our principal had the tough job of bringing us into his office one by one to hand us the following notice:

"Unfortunately, it appears you may be part of the spring 2010 layoff..."
Poor guy!

Kind of funny timing, given the circumstances of my week, but again, I actually just feel really blessed. If I'm honest, I've been ready to take a break from teaching since we started trying to get pregnant two years ago. And hopefully this summer, we'll get the kid we've been longing for, and I'll happily be a stay-at-home mom!

Please do pray for so many of my friends, though, who were with me in this line and who really need this job. The economy sucks!


  1. Scary! Leah's teacher, whom I *love* is part of that group because she doesn't have tenure. Boo.

  2. oh dado!!! sending you hugzzz!

  3. Yikes. Kind of scary, but I could see how it could be a blessing as well! Hoping you have a little one to hold in your arms this summer!
