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..."
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!
