If you check this space often, you may have noticed that I haven't been myself lately. First I stopped blogging about tack making, and lately I've begun missing days. There is a reason for this. About two weeks ago, my husband was told that his job was going to cease to exist. Monday is his last day, and although everyone keeps telling us not to worry, that is pretty much all I've been doing.
There are reasons to be optimistic. Seth is a data base administrator and that's a pretty good job to have even in a recession. If the number of recruiters calling the house is any indication, there are a lot of good employment opportunities available for someone with his resume. This last job wasn't really a good fit for him, and I wouldn't be surprised if we look back at this someday and say it was the best thing that could have happened.
I'm not there yet, though. Instead, I'm stuck in this unhappy, unemployment limbo which has left me feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and completely without creative energy. Hopefully this won't last long, but things may be kind of quiet around here in the meantime.


  1. Sending prayers and good thoughts your way... email if you need to talk..

  2. I hope things work out for you quickly. I've known several people who were made redundant (myself included!) and without exception they ended up in better situations.

  3. Oh now! I hope things will turn out okay and that your husband will find a better fit with a new company, and quickly.

  4. *hugs*

    It sucks but it will get better!


  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your hubby's job : /

    If you don't feel creative for tack, then maybe you could do something else creative for a few days. Thats what I do when I feel "flat" about tack.. I draw or sculpt something from sculpey or go to the horsepark and suddenly I'm fine again...

  6. Hope things look up for you two soon! *hugs*
