Friday F The Eff Off 8-13

My oh my, that do you ever post...that was a 'straight from the gut' post, huh? Just typing as I listened to my boys trying to get themselves to bed that night. I decided to write instead of go up and rip the shit out of them.

Anyway - makes ya think, doesn't it? Thanks a mill' for chiming in with your comments.

Except moooooog. He's an asshole.

Moving on, this week, I only have one Eff You to hand out - here goes...

I could go into lots of fun details on this, but in summary, my husband is losing his job.
The company he works for is based in London and they were acquired by a company based in France. They have no need for the US office anymore and so, he'll be out of work. Could be a couple of months, could be a few more, the end is near.

Luckily - and I say this with much gratitude, I have a job. He works with many who aren't in the same situation. Thing is? That pressure to be the sole income earner? Not a fan. Grateful. But not a a fan.

So this week? I am yelling a big fat Fuck The French!

p.s. it's fucking Friday the 13th. Fucking Figures.

p.p.s. if i get this right? it'll show the rest of the friday flippers at kludgymom. Feels good, eh?

You're mean to me.

Also..I'm French.

Since this is 'fuck the French' day, I'll be on my way to visit you shortly.

I'll bring breath mints.

That was my fear! I have been dying to know what's up with you! You all never know, this might be the biggest blessing you all will receive. It was for a lot of the people that lost their jobs here awhile back. I wish you guys luck! Hope you have a great weekend!

Fuck the French!

I hope he can find something.

dh is our sole income...but we've been talking about me going back to work- b/c this economy sucks. If I can stop literally throwing up whenever I think about it, I'll write about it next week.

Eff unemployment. My hubby was laid off twice...twice two different companies in the last year and a half. The second time he knew it was coming (like you do) and got his sh** together prior and started interviewing/networking blah blah blah. He has a job now. He loves it. He better have it for a long time.

Well, in light of your hub's employment situation I say that flip is in order. Good luck. Hope it all works out.

I hear the French are really dirty in the sack. Mostly because they don't bathe.

I'm sorry about your news. Crossing fingers and sending prayers.

Gotta love moooooog.

still laughing over mooooooooooog.

"bringing breath mints."

Tell me that didn't just make your day?

In commiseration, my husband was laid off of work for one year. Yup. We survived and I learned A LOT of good things. I'd love to post about it,but he just wants to forget about that period.

But it turned out to be a wonderful thing...we cut money where we never ever thought we could cut money from. We changed things, we learned, we got creative, and now, It All Good.

It really did help us, I'm not kidding or being a cheerleader to you. IF you want to know more, I can email you a list of how it changed our family dynamics for the better.

I am so sorry. Usually people all, "Eff off, Car Pooling Duty." This was a shocker. And to you, as well, I'm sure.

Alexandra's right. Good can come from this and you WILL get through this.

Moral of the story: the French are scum. I will try and boycott their cheese in your honor. It's going to be tough.
