S.O.S.

Remember this post where I said the sad, sad state of the economy had primarily affected how frequently I bought drinks at Sonic? I guess it's poetic justice or poetic blindness or poetic foolishness but the rotten economy is about to hit our family full on in the face. Round two of layoffs at dhs company are certain (we're not very optimistic about how that will turn out), very few jobs are out there, and I'm on day 10 of 4 hours of sleep or less.

I am so sorry that you guys are being affected by this as well. I know what you mean about losing sleep over it. Matt's company is going to do layoffs in his area starting in April (they are laying off 6000 employees company wide). We thought they were laying off in his area last month and panicked the entire month, only to find out they are delaying it. I hate having the fear of layoffs having over our heads all the time, but Matt is just happy they are delaying them and that he will definitely be employed for 2 more months. Keep us posted. :)

This just totally sucks! I will pray for you guys. I know what you mean about the anxiety. Yesterday, Bil came home at 4:30 (at least an hour and a half early) and I totally panicked. Turned out the electricity had gone out at the plant. Still, we are just waiting for the next round of layoffs. He has applied for some jobs in the area, but no one has really called back. He is completely qualified for the positions, so either the companies have decided not to hire after all or there are even more qualified people in line. Scary, scary times.

I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this. Victor's company is struggling right now, also - it's scary to be so uncertain about the future. Things can seem fine and stable, and then suddenly not so much. We'll keep you in our prayers.
