the little things ...
We got some horrible news this week ... the hubster was laid off from work on Monday. And while I had taken a couple of days to mope around feel sorry for us, there's been a lot of little things happening around here to make me realize that it's not so bad.
For one, the hubster hasn't taken a vacation in a long time. Even though this isn't "technically" a vacation, the time he's been home has given us a chance to enjoy our little family - even more so than the normal weekends off.
Secondly, the layoff has given the hubster the final push that he needed to sit for the CPA exam. He's been putting it off for far too long. Just something he needs to get finished, and now he has the time and the motivation to do it.
And finally, he's found out just how marketable he really is. Today, he's out and about meeting with 3 different recruiters - all of which have positions that need to be filled. The prospects are good and I am hoping that we won't have to be without cash flow for long.
In the meantime, we've been focusing on the little things ... like snuggling on the couch to watch a movie, cooking dinner together, and giggles during bathtime.
