I've been a bit neglectful of my blog recently. I don't intend to be, but I've been really sick and then everything else just seems like it has went to hell as well. I am getting better now, finally!
On Thursday we found out that there was a leak in the play room here. The floor is now rotten and has to be replaced. Which of course means that we have to put down new carpet or flooring as well. Great! My husband was preparing to take the carpet up and inspect the damage when we pulled up the corner of the carpet and discovered that there is black mold under there. My husband is allergic to mold and has asthma. So we have to hire someone else to deal with that.
Hiring someone to take care of the mold and the new floor normally wouldn't be a problem, but on Friday when he went in to work he got his paycheck and there was a letter in it saying that they were terminating his employment. So yeah, he got fired. Which puts us in a horrid situation because we need all this work done. There is also another problem. Since having Jagger last October the Playroom has been used as storage for the massive amount of baby clothes and things we have for him. All of his clothes have ruined. Completely ruined. So now after he grows out of his current size he has absolutely no clothing and we have to buy new. Which wouldn't normally be a problem either. Except that my husband has lost his job and we live in a very small southern town, and it's hard to find work here. Jagger is already starting to need some size 6-9 months things, so it probably won't be much longer until he outgrows all of his 3-6 months clothing. He's just started to catch up, since he was born early and was just a little over 5 pounds at birth.
So now we have to find a way to basically renovate the play room, buy the materials, buy new carpeting or hardwood and buy Jagger all new clothing as well. I've been down about this and have taken a few days to just soak it all up and take it in. I haven't figured out how we're going to be able to do all of this yet though. I don't work so we were dependent on the income that Justin gets totally. Now that it has been taken away without warning I have no clue what we are going to do. He already has applications in everywhere because he went and applied all day Friday and all day Monday. There are a few places that are thinking about hiring but no where that is currently hiring. It's just been a trying time for us. We're trying to stay positive, but it's really hard sometimes with the weight of all of this on our shoulders. We have each other, our health and our beautiful baby boys though, so that is definitely a good thing. If you pray then please keep our family in your prayers if you don't mind!
