    Your welcome. It took forever to find a somewhat affordable advent calendar that didn't have chocolate. I thought it was a cute one and it can be used for stocking stuffers too.

Is he at least going to get some kind of severance package? (When Dh and I met we had started in the same training class at a call centre. We worked there less than a year before they announced they were moving the call centre overseas and would be closing in a couple months. Dh and I both stayed until the end and got decent severance packages. They also had a job fair where Dh got hired at his current job where he's been for almost 8 years. He has better pay, a 50% discount on our cable, Internet, and 2 cell phone services... I went to the ups call centre and worked there until a bit before ds1 was born. Dh and I discussed our options (working opposite shifts and never getting to see each other, daycare where I might bring home a tiny bit extra after covering daycare but then we both didn't like the risk due to all the horro stories out there even though 99% are probably great, or me being a stay at home mom which is what we decided on... While it was very stressful that we both lost our job at the same time, and we didn't have our kids yet, we both got our jobs very quickly. Dh got his right away and I got mine 2-3 months later which was perfect for me as I needed time off after working 2-3 jobs since I was in high school.)

    i hope you don't mind that I shared my story. I wanted it to be a hopeful story for you, especially since your Dh already has a couple of job leads. Imo things worked out better for us and I'm hoping thing will work out better for you 4 as well.





    I'm feeling a bit better for now. I woke up several times yesterday for an hour or so feeling a bit better before my headache returned (pounding splitting headache) and set off my stomach again. I've had migraines in the past but never that bad (probable because it was a migraine combined with a bug.) but I am hoping the worst is over. Dh is going to take ds1 to school this morning (like he does every school day) then go get some groceries because Tuesday and Wednesday are his current days off. He's supposed to get me some Diet Pepsi, he was supposed to get it yeasterday but I told him I was too sick to have it anyway so he's getting it with the Main grocery shop today. Usually me, Dh, and ds1 will get the groceries after dropping off ds2 at school but Dh will be going alone today as I don't want to push myself and get worse or risk getting anyone else sick.

    Ya not really the best timing, they let 12 people go yesterday we are hopefully he will find something soon. And thanks for sharing your story. Hopefully the economy picks up soon.

    Hope you are on the mend today. I used to get terrible migraines but cutting soy from my diet really helped. I did have the starting of one a couple days ago but I was able to catch it early enough when it was just aura & take some meds that it went away before the pain set in.

    Day 1 looks awesome so far!

    We're under a freezing rain warning this afternoon Totally sucks, it's the one night a week that my parents babysit so I can get out with my friends (I sound like a teenager lol)... we had plans to go out for dinner but it depends on the weather.

    Tonight was the lighting of city hall here in Regina. Kayden was pretty happy to get some one on one with our mayor!

    Very exciting to see what everyone else has received! My daughter and I were spoiled today, she received a Christmas countdown chalkboard sign that she has on her door and I received 3 packages of Christmas cupcake liners and neon food colouring! Awesome, as we are going to start our Christmas baking this weekend! I will be taking a picture every couple of days or so.

    Unfortunately DD will not be opening her gift tomorrow. She had a major tantrum before bed, wanting to open her advent gifts now instead of waiting...so she will be delayed hopefully just the one day.
    Are you looking for my answers for the Advent train? You can find them on my wishlist (about me)
