I do not normally write about the things that go wrong in my life. I read other people's blog and their problems seem a lot worse then my little problems ever could be. I am very blessed with a great husband who loves me and 4 beautiful, healthy, wonderful children. And my problems could never compare to having a sick child or my husband or I having a life threaten illness, but something happened this weekend that is really bothering me. And not to bring down any of you with my problems, I just need to share my frustrations. And since I do not have a therapist, you are the lucky ones who get to hear it.
On Friday night my husband lost his job. My husband's boss called 11:45 P.M. Friday night and said,"I am closing the business and you do not need to come back." My husband has been having issues with his boss for months, so my husband decided to share his thoughts with his boss and then hang up on him.
You see, his boss is going through a divorce right now and is not happy that his wife is not taking him back. In his attempts to hurt her, he does not care who else is affected.
Of course his boss did not close the business, he went in the next morning to work without calling my husband to inform him they were open or to apologize. We suspected that because the thought of him missing an opportunity to make a buck is impossible.
This is not the first time he has pulled this, he has made other claims of not coming to work, selling the business and many other immature threats. The divorce is his fault completely and I can not possibly have one bit of sympathy for him.
Anyway my husband went to work and got his things and told his boss what he thought of him and his immature behavior. Well, of course after that conversation,my husband no longer has a job. I think my husband did the right thing because we have been putting up with this ridiculous behavior for months. And because of that, my husband has been looking for a job. He has not found one yet but we are hoping he is close to getting one. We are not really prepared for the financial burden of my husband not working. He did not take another job sooner because he was making good money and we were use to that income and not everyone in his profession pays what he was getting.
Anyway, if it was just my husband and myself I would not care so much, but I have 4 kids to worry about. My husband will find a job to keep food on the table but I do not know if we will be able to keep the house. And with the housing market the way it is, it will take a while to sell our house unless we take a huge hit on it.
The thing that bothers me the most is when people own a business and they do not care who they affect. My husband's boss could careless that he is messing with my four kids lives. He does not care about anyone else but himself. He has made terrible mistakes and now we get to pay for it. There is a lot more to the story but I do not know legally what I am a loud to write. My husband boss is a well know person in the community and since people know me it would not take long to figure out who my husband's boss is. And the last thing we need is a law suit.
So that was my great weekend. If I stop writing blog posts, you will know I had to cut off my internet service.
Thanks for reading my post, and I will go back to doing my craft posts soon.
I hope everyone else is having a great weekend.
