What's Worse Than Losing Your Job?

Answer: when you and your hubby both lose it at the same time.

Wow. I mean wow. Today we found out our primary sponsor is no longer going to be our sponsor. At close to half a mil per year, this is a big fucking deal. So, our team will no longer be a team at the end of our season.

Wow. Talk about mixed feelings.

By mid November I will be unemployed. So will the Booby. Talk about the multiple eggs in just one basket case! What am I going to do? It's a rhetorical question, I'm not really looking for answers, just a job.

And the "you should pick me" approach in a job application cover letter has not sprung any positive results, so back to the ol' drawin' board! be continued!

p.s. after writing this and having it sit un-published, I found out Booby's best friend passed away after a long battle against cancer. I haven't told him yet. I don't know how I'm going to do that.



  1. OMG, Nikki, I know you were anticipating this but it still sucks. Then to have Booby's friend pass away? I don't care how long the fight, it's always tragic.
    Awww... I'm so upset for you both.
    HUGE HUGS, lots of kisses, and a few kleenex

  2. This SUCKS,SUCKS,SUCKS!! I'm so sorry, Nikki.
    Hang in there.
    Big hugs!

  3. Life has a way of throwing crap at us at various points in our journey. But there's always extended times where there's no crap throwing - best to think about those and look forward to the next one. Best of luck, and keep us posted!

  4. That sucks, sorry to hear that. Hang in there and stay positive.

  5. Aw, sending you big blog hugs. I'm so sorry you're having it rough right now, honey. Just know that there are people out here (a LOT of us from the looks of things!) that care and are hoping things get better for you.

  6. oh hon...I am so sorry. That really sucks..on all fronts.

  7. What a shitty post. I'm so sorry for you. my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    HUGS, Wupppy

  8. oh wow jane. this sucks. once i get caught up on my reading, i'll try to stay that way so my comments aren't such terrible afterthoughts.
