Been there, done that, and and it stresses both of you out - I know! :rolleyes: Hang in there. There are oodles of jobs in the GTA. He'll bounce right back, you'll see. What does he do, by the way?

heeler's rock!

Oh no, Bama! I know EXACTLY how that feels. The stress will subside once he finds a new job. The job market is booming and jobs aren't too hard to find now a days. Hang in there, you'll see! :o

I am sure tomorrow will be a better day,the job-market is better now,so I am sure he'll have another job in no time at all!!! Cheer up!!!

If he wants to commute to Niagara area we are hiring 9-1-1 dispatchers @ $29/hr!! :D
Try not to stress too much..... when one door closes another opens!! Some of the best things in life happen when you feel at your lowest, and not expecting things to get better!! (Trust me.... it's not only how I met my man, but how we got our sweet little Puppy!! :) )

$29/hr?! Holy Carp!!! (Note to self....don't show hubby....he'll want you to apply and go back to work!~So he can stay way!!!) ;)

{{{{HUGS}}}} I lost my job a while back is that ever a stressful time. Just know and tell him things always work out for the best. :o

Sorry Bam....hang in there.....HUGS HUGS to you both.

:) Been there too, twice now. I am a programmer and it seems that alot of companies "downsize". It is hard but something always comes along. Times like these are times to reflect on your life. Last November I was laid off and found it really stressful (single Mom, no savings, just bought my house in the previous August). Somehow I made it through and with a much more positive attitude - that we do somehow make it through these times and even for the better!
Best of luck, you'll find something!
