The W Family Chronicles

Job stress…need some good thoughts.

Posted on: October 15, 2007

There is stuff going on at D’s job.  Too much to go into detail, but they are supposed to be having meetings and filling people in tomorrow.  We are assuming there is a chance of layoffs, and are pretty worried about it.  If he is laid off, this will make #4, in 6 years.  The first one happened right after 9/11 and there’s been bad news about every 2 years for us job-wise.  None of it his fault, just poor conditions in the manufacturing industry.  If he is laid off, it will leave us in a very bad place financially.  We’ve held it together through 3 layoffs and subsequent moves, but this would truly be the last straw for us.  So if you can, say a prayer, light a candle, send positive thoughts…whatever floats your boat.  We’ll have some news tomorrow afternoon, I expect.

Taking a deep, cleansing breath…

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
