Well, shit

What a day.

Kevin lost his job today. [insert jaw drop here] He's been there almost 8 years and worked his ass off for them. This company sucks beyond belief (I used to work there, I know). If you don't believe me, ask Rho since they screwed her husband over as well previously (plus she used to work there too).

LJ and Mr. Badger aren't going to get the baby. I can't tell what I'm more upset about -- that my husband is unemployed or that LJ won't be snuggling Miss Queen anytime soon. They both make me cry.

My prayers are with Galveston, TX and anyone else in the path of Ike.

In minor news, Liam slept like complete dung last night. He never even slept this poorly as a newborn. Surely that's not helping my mood.

I have to tell you that if Sunny and Bean don't get BFPs, I might just jump off a freakin' bridge!

OMG! Kevin lost his job??? What is WITH people today???

LJ said...

As an addendum, if at least one of them don't get a BFP, I think the next TOOTPU gtg is gonna be at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

What is it with shit hitting the fan today? I'm sorry to hear that Kevin lost his job. And I too, am sad that things didn't work out for LJ. I'm going to lay low for the next few hours, until the day is over, so that I can try to avoid getting hit by flying shit clear out here in Arizona.

So,so, sorry hun... not cool at all. I wish him luck in his next en devour, I hope that it will come soon. Maybe the next one will make you fabulously rich ;)

I am also sorry that LJ is having a shitty day as well, it's so not fair. ~Hugs~

I am going to veto the Bay Bridge because that place makes me hyperventilate.

Leah, I am so incredibly sorry. Do you want to email TOOTPU off-blog and let us know what type of position he's looking for? Maybe someone in the area has a lead. That is absolutely the suckiest day.

Rho said...

I am so bummed out and ticked off about Kevin's job (mostly ticked off!) I hate that place, they are a bunch of a-holes. It continues to amaze me that people that do jackcrap there continue to be employed and those that work hard get the finger pointed at them and screwed. The best and worst day was when S lost his job there, it will get better....promise.

Meghan said...

So sorry about Kevin, that just sucks. I agree with Lolli, let us know what he does and we'll all send out the networking bat signal for ya

Samantha said...

I'm sorry about the job loss. That sucks!

E said...

Oh god, chica - I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you guys.

In keeping with our sychronicity, Sarah had her worst night of sleeping ever last night, too.

Bean said...

OMG, Leah I'm so sorry. That really sucks. Oh -- I JUST looked over and saw LJ's addendum. Well I hope it's a BFP (though I confess I'm not optimistic), but if it's not I sure don't want anyone to jump off a bridge on my behalf. Then again... misery does love company! Perhaps instead of the Bridge we should just plan on a bar that stays open late! :)

Well damn, sees like the world has just been dealing out shit lately.

TeamWinks said...

That really sucks all the way around!

Delenn said...

That so sucks! I am so sorry to hear that he lost his job! I hope he can find something soon--it sucks being in the lay-off zone.

Hmmm....I thought blogsphere had enough suffering earlier this year, dammit..

Check out Anla--she lost her home in the storm--

UGH Sweets! I am so so sorry. CRAP! Thanks for the shout out. I really hope one of us gets a bfp. Today my hope is quickly declining. At the beginning of the week I had major hope. Today really wanting to just have a drink. Hope is almost gone.

HUGS to you!

Oh a bar that is open really late sounds PERFECT! We just need a good husband to be our driver. :) Wait lets just spend money on a limo. :)

Jendeis said...

What suckitude. That pretty much sums up my feelings on everything right now.

JJ said...

Doh..blogger ate my comment.

As I was saying...I am so sorry about Kevin's job. And its stupid to ask, but stupid not to: are you all doing OK? Please keep us posted. Im always thinking of you and yours! xoxox

Geohde said...

Oh, mate.

That's a big bundle of bad-ass news wrapped in one post.

Can I say I'm so sorry to read it?
