shock

Sugar D just found out he's been laid off, effective immediately, along with about 100 other employees. The package isn't bad, 8 weeks' pay, but still... my mind is racing and stuck at the same time. Change is scary. Getting similar work in this town will not be easy.

Oh, Sin.

My god. That's a total shock.

Tell SD I'm sorry. It seems so strange to say, but if there's anything I can do...

Mimi said...

Oh no. I'm so sorry. I am sure you must be reeling. What terrible news.

Kyla said...

Oh wow. Just like that. Goodness. I'm sorry.

Jenn said...

Amazing how eight weeks can seem so long or so short...hang tight; it can be done--it's just so hard living in the not knowing.

Oh no! Job stress sucks.

So sorry to hear this. Eight weeks pay seems like a lot when you're employed, but a penance when you're not.

Here's hoping something better comes along right away. You guys will be OK, I know it.

Oh that freaking sucks. Hope the dream job he's always wanted turns up quickly.

sewfunky said...

well we have been there and i guess the best thing to say is everything happens for a reason.. for us it ended up working out for the best and i hope it does for you as well.

Beck said...

That's awful. I'm so sorry to hear that.

Suz said...

That's so hard....especially when it comes as a shock. I'm sure that you're both trying to wrap your minds around it and hope that you land on your feet.

Christine said...

Oh crap. That sucks. I am so sorry. Hopefully something will come up.

Mouse said...

I'm sorry to hear this. Fingers crossed for things working out.

Karen said...

oh dear, I hardly know what to say, just so sorry, we've been there, it is scary. I'll be thinking of you. Change is so very hard. I hope something hopeful comes your way soon.

OH, Sin. Sorry I am getting here so late. I was out tonight. I am so sorry for you and for SD. Ahhhh, and that SA trip is likely still being paid off. I hope that he bounces quickly and the severance can be put to good use.

Em said...

I'm so sorry. I hope things work out so that in a few months time you'll say to yourselves "it was for the best..."

I'm so, so sorry.

Oh, The Joys said...

Man oh man. That stinks. I hope everything settles into newness that is better than ever.

nomotherearth said...

How awful! Let's hope it's just a pre-cursor to something even better.

Kelly said...

Jesus, the not knowing is the hardest part. Uncertainty can certainly suck. I wish you guys well, and hope you can find a suitable, workable replacement job.
