So....

Yeah...

Matt got laid off again...

We JUST moved into a new house in Clovis, CA. And two days later he was let go.

What is EVEN better is that the house we put an offer in on... YEAH they accepted the offer, and the day before Matt was let go, we signed the official papers for the Bank's Counter Offer... Thank goodness we were able to retract it!!

So, HERE are the blessings... (because I NEED to look for some right about now)
~ We moved into a beautiful house, and we are together!!
~ We found out about Matt being let go before we put any money into the house we were going to buy. (we were about to start the inspection process)
~ We will be able to spend a lot of time together as a family for the Holidays.
~ This time I am not 8 months pregnant, and I will be able to go back to work.

Prayers our way would be very WELCOME.
We are doing fine, PLEASE don't feel like this post is as "Debbie Downer" as it sounds...
We are FIRM believers that Everything Happens for a Reason, and we are going to get through it. I keep going back to what our father in heaven has told us...

"I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it!"

My little Family is SOOO worth all this "Hard Stuff"
Wells Fargo Bank... HERE I COME! ~

Holy crap, girl! When it rains it pours, huh?? It's a blessing you can go to work in the meantime. Hope everything goes well for you guys, I'll be praying for you. What a sucky way to start the holidays. But I guess you'll be focusing on the little things this year, which is what we're doing because our Christmas is going to be pretty meager. : )
