hi all -

so i got laid off this past friday, lack of work. it's a wierd feeling - never happened before. and i have mixed feelings going on. on the one hand i get to spend more time now with my ds (yeah!!!). on the other hand, my dh is a f/t student so with me not working $ is an issue. i do want to take some time off (i got severance and unemployment) but then with my profession (i'm an engineer) i can only take off so much time before the whole "marketable" issue comes up. and, i was working p/t and i don't know how easy it's going to be to find p/t work. and i don't want to take the first job that comes up out of any feeling of "i have to have a job!!" augh!!

but as i said, on the bright side, at least for the next few weeks i get to spend lots of time with my little guy

not expecting any advice, just wanted to dump abit.

Well- condolences and congrats. Enjoy the time w/ds and take time to find what will work best for you. Severance and unemployment can take you a long way.
