I was going to write a long "What I Learned This Week" post but I just had a conversation with my husband that I don't know how to process and I can't think about anything else. His business is seriously struggling. He has huge cabinet jobs in progress and waiting to start, and the builder won't give him any money, so he can't buy materials or pay his guys. So I don't know what is going to happen. He says he and his partner are going to "ride it out until the bitter end" but it looks like we might not be able to keep the business going.

I don't mind working, but there are no secondary English teaching jobs available right now. I could sub, but child care for Mr. Blue is a problem since I would never know from day to day when I'd be working. I just hate not knowing what we are facing.

Please pray for me. I could really use it now.


  1. Goodness, that sounds rough and uncertain. Prayers are definitely going out to you! Hang in there!

  2. Oh, Alison. I will pray. I pray that things sort out soon so you know exactly where you stand, and that you know exactly what the best course of action is. Kate.

  3. All of my best coming your way. That's tough. And daycare makes it tougher. Maybe you could find a private sitter that is willing to work with you in regards to dropin?


  4. Prayer and good energy sent your way right now. Story economic times and uncertainty are a bad combination, but we will ALL make it through this, helping each other, sticking together and remembering it's only temporary. It WILL get better. HUGS

  5. I understand...we're going through similar things with my business.

    Prayers being sent your way...

    Isaiah 41:10

  6. YUCK. How tough that must be. Praying that you find some answers soon! Hang in there, girlfriend.
