This is so weird. I woke up this morning feeling like something really bad was going to happen. I was depressed and anxious at the same time. I tried to explain it to Richard, but it was difficult to do.

Well, I just received a phone call that my kids' dad just got laid off. It was completely unexpected. Not good at all.

Needless to say, we are keeping the kids this weekend, while he deals with this problem. They don't have any savings..in fact they are behind on their bills already. They are only giving him 2 weeks severance.

Other than that...it was a decent day. Jake had his first student council meeting this morning. He was so excited and proud. He had to be at school early and that was not a problem as he was ready to go 30 minutes before we even had to walk out the door! So cute.

I am leaving to pick him up in a few minutes as he also had his first after-school golf lesson today. They offered this cool program for the kids at our school and I jumped on signing Jake up. His dad is a big golfer and I figured it would be cool for him to learn at least the basics. I can't imagine he will learn a lot, but we'll see.

It was supposed to be a kidless weekend...and we were going to do some OU/Texas celebrating/watching....but we'll still have fun. I am so thankful for Richard being understanding in the need to keep the kids here this weekend. Our alone weekends are very special and important to us, but sometimes we have to give up that time.

I've really been enjoying reading people's blogs around here. I feel very inadequate compared to most, but hopefully I will learn. I've got to learn to budget my time, so to speak, so I don't neglect my household chores to read blogs. Hehe. It's been happening....can you believe that?!?!?!

I'll leave you with important words....BOOMER SOONER!!! Oklahoma Sooners MySpace Images

So sorry to hear that their Dad lost his job. How funny that you had a weird feeling before it happened.
