    Default Feeling Sick-->DH's Work just laid off a bunch of people...

    Dh just called me and told me they just laid off a bunch of people, one of whom has been there for 8 years. DH has only been there for 4. Granted, they have 2 totally separate jobs. He is just going in the building now...I am praying that he doesn't get laid off right now. I am going to make myself crazy until he calls me.

    Hang in there and hopefully he calls soon. Do you have something to distract yourself with while you wait?

    Lay off times always make me sick.. I have no idea what type of work he does, but I grew up with a father in the factory business and it was always so stressful no knowingif it would behim/his job, rather someone could bump hime, etc. Now my Dh is a welder and I worry about it all the time (esp since I know they are inevitable at his plant .. just not sure hwere the cut will be). So I hear you and am definately sending good thoughts your way.

    Sending you good thoughts that your DH gets to stay on. I know all about the emotional roller coaster, last Friday DH came home and told me his contract wasn't going to be renewed being as there were 3 black Fridays in a row in December and he lost many of his 1500 users that he has to maintain. Then yesterday he e-mails me that he contacted the big upper to just finalize things and was told he WAS getting renewed within a week or so. It's NOT a fun experience, and in another 3 months our family gets to go through it all over again. This economic crisis stinks!!! Please let us know what you find out, hopefully good news!
