    Web design is a good field, you should find something better soon. I guess the main thing you can do now is work on your portfolio, work on an open source project you are interested in, or do something design related that is fun. In this way you can demonstrate to your next employer that when life gives you lemons you make lemonade! Also any open source work makes you look really into your field and you may even make some contacts through that leading to future employment.

    Aw hell! That’s awful, but especially terrible in light of you both being suddenly unemployed. Take some days off to relax and focus on yourself before you try to get right back in the march.

    Oh my gosh, they fired you just like that?!?! 😯 🙁 I’m so sorry! I hope you’ll find a new job soon!

    Speaking of Friday 13th … I usually don’t believe in that, but on Friday my pressure cooker almost exploded. (It was an old one.) I’m happy nothing happened to me, but it frightened me a lot.

    Oh no! I’m so so sorry to hear about your bad news, Jos. Hang in there and try to stay positive though. Things just have a way of working themselves out. Maybe this is the beginning of a whole new and better job. Best of luck with everything. Exercise is a great way to release stress.

    hi jos, i am so sorry to hear of both of your job loses, this can not be easily digested until it happens to oneself. years ago it was enough for me, after working for 9 outfits in 15 years i finally realized all w2 employment is either seasonal or nonsustainable. i was always the last to go but always went. it was then that i started my own business and have never looked back. this was not easily done, but what is yours you can keep. maybe… ie,obama. you and many others know how how strong minded you are, as f&z would tell you, just stay loose and flexible. adapt yourself & have faith, god will open doors. yours truly, gary

      Gary, thanks for sharing your experience. I truly appreciate it. I think we decided to get our stuff ready first before searching for another job.

    Oh no, that sucks 🙁 What were you doing? What about your husband? Do you have degrees or will it be easy to find another job? It is so hard to find things to do now 🙁 I hope you find a new job soon though!

    Oh Jos, I am so sorry to hear that!!! I know exactly how hard it it to lose a job. My husband lost his job 3 years ago and I was the only one working. It was the hardest time ever, and we got into debt so easily…
    I have no idea what your jobs were (sorry, didn’t read it all yet..) but I am sure you will not have a big problem finding a new one. It is difficult to leave the place you like, people you love… But as one cliche says: Something ends, something new begins. And I am sure that is and old true… I wish you both luck, keep us updated on how are things going!!! :-*
