Life's Bumps

Bumps AheadLast Wednesday, I wrote on my Facebook wall that Big Daddy's store would be closing - forever.

For all two of you that read this, you probably already knew this little tidbit.

At the time when I wrote it, the reality of the situation hadn't fully sunken in. Sure, we've worried about money  and we've run around trying to use our medical insurance while we still had it. And  tended to a billion other little details that are too mundane to list out here.

It wasn't until today that I fully felt that hopeless feeling. The what-exactly-are-we-going-to-do feeling.

For the last twenty-three years, he has worked for one company. I've known and been with him for the last fifteen. Our whole life has revolved around his job. It just seems surreal to be starting over.

In the grand scheme of things, there are a lot worse things we could be dealing with right now. If I find myself starting to slip into that woe-is-me place, I try to remind myself of that fact.

This is just a bump in the road.

I hope.
