    Default we became a statistic! boo hiss!!!



    Well it finally happened. We became an economical statistic.

    Hubby's position was eliminated at work today. Actually the company has been downsizing for the last five years. So we were lucky to get thru the college years for our daughter. We have two graduates this year. High School and University. Guess the paperwork we are about to fill out for my son's financial aid for college will be quite different than we discussed with him yesterday.

    Hubby is a little freaked out. I'm not. I've survived much worse and feel things will work out just fine. Kid's feel that mom will figure things out so they're not freaked either.

    Wonder if our new prez BO can help us out?

    How is everyone else doing during these times? Any retail owners out there? How are things right now? I know a few of the regular tweleve peeps had been hit with similar circumstances recently.

    eh! I want a smaller house to clean anyway's. Something like a bungalow on a beach would be nice.

    So sorry to hear that, Jean.

    I just completed the FAFSA two times (one for each dd) - there is a new item on it this year - dislocated worker or displaced homemaker. Here is the official site for more info on the EFC: http://www.ifap.ed.gov/efcformulagui...aGuide0910.pdf
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    I'm sorry for both of you, Jean and Kristen....times will get hard, but you're survivors, and you'll make it. If you need anything I can help with, please let me know.

    So sorry to hear that Kristen. I hope that all will work out for the two of you.

    Hubby's first offer came in today. El Paso based but working in Juarez back and forth across the border.

    The kicker is that he was traveling one to two times a month there with the employer that just downsized considerably. He hated being there the most. That was the worst part of the job. Go figure!

    Can't remember if I said it earlier but the plant associated with the company he is/was with will now close also. Leaving well over 500 people out of a job. We don't live in the town the plant is in but near by. That little town may well become a ghost town.

    Guess things are bad all over!
