This week has been rough. I've had some family issues going on that kind of turned my life upside down. That started on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday eServ laid off almost everyone in the office. So Kendall is now looking for a new job as we are unemployed. We will be okay for a while. Kendall got severance pay for roughly the next 3 months. We will be able to go on unemployment, but it is only like 1/3 of what we make, so it definately isn't enough to get us through, so the search is on. There is still a good chance that IF the economy picks up and eServ starts getting more contracts they could hire Kendall back, but I'm not too hopeful for that.
I've been very proud of Kendall through it all. He's been very optimistic and has turned all of his energy into putting in a new yard, which I'm very happy about. He has been tilling up a huge garden, and tearing out the entire yard. I had no idea how tired it would make me, trying to keep up with the kids AND the yardwork! But the yardwork has been the thing that has really made me feel like a homeowner instead of a renter. Having something to change and make my own feels wonderful! And while we won't be able to do everything we want because we don't have money, it is very rewarding. I'll post pictures later, but for now I need all my time to get it done before the rains come next week! We hope that you are all well. We know that these are hard times for all. We will keep you all in our prayers and hope you will do the same for us.
