Unemployed

Yup....I'm laid off as of next Friday. It couldn't come at a better time. Right before Christmas...Now I really don't know how I'm going to afford all those Christmas presents. In reality my family will totally understand if I can't afford to buy presents for everyone this year, but still. I feel like I'm letting them all down. My family has always been incredibly generous, and I'll feel terrible if I can't afford to at least get them a little something...but as I said before, I have a big family!

In other news, I can't sleep. Maybe its the fact that I took NyQuil last night and slept until noon, or just the prospect of not having a job and being worried about bills. Or maybe its just my insomniatic tendencies rearing its ugly head again but its 230 in the morning, and here I am. I have to get up in the morning for church...ahem, later this morning.

know how you feel, been a few months since I received a paycheck but I know something will come up for me, same as it will for you

Ugh, I'm so sorry. Maybe you can make something. Like bake some cookies and treats or do those cookies in a jar, where you layer all the ingredients in a jar so all they have to do is mix and bake?

It'll be cheap and a very cute, creative idea!

*shivers* My hours got cut and I'm starting to feel the same way! This is why people are getting knitted stuff for Christmas. Something will come up, fear not! *hug*
