A Thank You And An Update

First, I have to say thank you to everyone who has expressed their love and support over the last few days.  From Twitter to Facebook to Google+ to telephone calls to texts to emails, we have been shown just how many people out there are rooting for us. It's humbling and we are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you who have offered words of encouragement, sent us links to possible jobs, and offered to help us financially.  I am overwhelmed by your generosity.

We are coping the best that we know how.  This situation is tailor made to be detrimental to Scot's mental health and I won't pretend that this week has not been ridiculously difficult.  I'm fairly exhausted from trying to keep us all moving in the right direction while keeping some semblance of normal surrounding the kids.  I am, however, cautiously optimistic about where we go from here.  There is still vast amounts of uncertainty, but there is also possibility and I'm clinging to that.

I don't want to shout specifics about Scot's job search in this space.  However, he's applying, we're getting some nibbles, we're following them up.  We can only hope the right opportunity comes knocking.  Until then, we redefine normality.

Thank you again to everyone.  I, personally, could not be the rock of our family right now were it not for your support.  It is invaluable to me.  Thank you.


  1. Sometimes being the Mom/Wife is SO difficult. I am also the one who has to keep a positive outlook so that the entire family doesn't fall apart during stressful times.. It's a hard job because I usually just want to give in to the stress but never can. Because I have to be the tough one! I totally get it. I'm glad you guys have SOME glimmers of hope.. I am still thinking of you guys every day... Wishing you guys the very best!!

  2. You left out homemade wine! Say the word, I'll get ya some. :) You're a great wife and mother. Hang in there. You guys are going to be okay.
