So. RJ got a job. I can't believe it! I think I'm kind of in shock still from the news. I can't believe we just went through 8 months of unemployment. It all seems like a blur. I remember the moment I got the phone call from him at work telling me that he just got laid off. I was kind of shocked at first. Neither of us saw it coming, but after a few seconds I felt like everything was going to be o.k. and then I just said, "Well, this is going to be an adventure." It was. And it's been an interesting 8 months to say the least. I learned a lot and I know that I was able to grow a lot as a person. I gotta say that my husband rocks though. "Why?" you may ask. Well for two reasons - #1: he made sure we were prepared. He's a saver and I know we couldn't have done it without having the emergency fund that we had (which I have to give him most of the credit for in the first place. I'm kind of the free spirit in the relationship. :)) #2 - I never saw him freak, stress or cry about it. And, if I ever started to have a moment of anxiety, he immediately calmed me down and told me that everything was gonna be o.k. and that I just needed to have faith. He is awesome and I'm so thankful for him. I'm also so grateful for those of you who had been praying for our family and for those random acts of kindness that you did in our behalf. I just want to say thank you so much to those of you who cared and helped us out in your own ways. We know we were very blessed along the way.
