The last few days of 2011 my hubby got the news every stay at home mom/wife fears, you’re fired! When he first told me I thought he was joking, this lively little conversation went on for about 5 minutes until I realized he’s actually serious. Of course that’s when the tears came. You realize after the fact that as a wife you should really prepare to hear this news, pick a good face so to speak. Fortunately I must really love my hubby because after the tears there was this sort of peace and calm, guess I didn’t have to work on my “face”. He was so “light” and “free”, he made it pretty easy. You realize after the dust has settled that this horrible news really isn’t so bad after all. I started to wonder if all these things I’m fearful of are really anything to be afraid of at all. Because in the end whatever is going to happen will. And it’s more about your reaction to these “happenings” than it is the actual event. I met my hubby when I was just 16 years old and he has said the same old thing time after time, “it is what it is”. And it’s just now, after 12 years and 2 kids that I’m kind of getting it.
So you lost your job, now what?
