Exciting News for Me

Most everyone who follows my blog knows that I also have a full-time dayjob, and those of you who are friends of mine know that having a full-time dayjob and a 50+ hour a week business has been somewhat stressful on me over the past few years.  I have always had multiple jobs at once since I was at least 21, and at one point I actually had TWO full-time jobs, and three part-time jobs at the same time (this only lasted for 3 months when I realized that sleep deprivation could cause some serious mental side effects, lol!!!  So, I quit one of the full-time jobs, but still had the other 4 jobs).  My reasoning over the last couple years for keeping my dayjob was that I needed my health insurance.  To buy insurance on my own for Jon & I would cost at least $500 a month, and I just wasn’t pulling in that kind of income to justify the expense.

Well, two weeks ago I was a victim of the current economic crisis, and was laid off from my dayjob that I have grown so attached to.  Those first few hours after I left were filled with a rollercoaster of worries and thoughts, including a slight panic attack, and then I realized something….  I would be okay.  No matter what, I have Jon & two wonderful families that will always be there for me.  One big concern was the fact that we are trying to start a family, and that I would definitely have to pay for COBRA (which is $694 a month… Ouch!) so that we won’t have to deal with the account collectors for the local hospital (VICIOUS, let me tell you).  Luckily, the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act will take my COBRA payments down 65% for the next 9 months (a big HOORAY for the government!).  So, now would be the perfect time to try having only one job, while also helping Jon get his company off the ground (I’ll fill you in on that soon).  I have high hopes that this is going to work out, and I’m SO excited to see where we are a year from now.

So, long story short, I will FINALLY be getting my blog posts caught up that have been waiting out there for so long now!  All of these posts are from 2008, so they aren’t sneak peeks that you’d normally see on a blog, but more of “flashbacks”.  Hey, that’s what I’ll call them… Flashbacks:-)
