What a week!
For starters, my wife lost her main job (she retains a very small 2nd one). We went from expecting October to be a good economic month to a bleak one. She had an interview for another one, but due to circumstances beyond her control, a prospective job fell through.
This puts us in a very bad financial situation. You see, when you're poor, you don't have much of a safety net. We don't have a savings account or anything like that. If she is unable to find a new job in the next month or so -- jobs are hard to come by these days -- we will be sucking little more than air by December 1, if not sooner.
Needless to say, this situation has been and continues to be very stressful. We could be staring at the real possibility of losing our house and this would also mean (shudder) giving up most or all of our pets.
On top of this, Google finally went ahead and completely changed Blogger's administrative interface. I don't like most of the changes and this too has stressed me out!
Of course, this second lemon pales in comparison to the first one, but as individual who doesn't deal well with change, being hit with two simultaneously has sent my anxiety level through the proverbial roof!!
