sound like eric will be getting laid off the middle of July! I am so freaked out and paniced. We have three month of bills if we cobra and 6 months if we don't. four and a half if we just cobra the kids!

i am distressed and freaked out! Eric told me not to panic yet................ but No one knows why Emerson's heart stops yet.....and I don't even have his next appointment till after the layoff!

Ok I am done with my whine for the night and off to my panic attack!

Can you apply for public assistance before the lay off so the baby will be covered. Or can you get his appointment changed to before the lay off?
I'll be praying that something changes and the lay off idea is dropped or he is able to find a better job before this one ends. Or there is always the lottery, I pray you get a winning ticket that would cover your expenses until he is able to find another job to take care of your family.

Man, I am so sorry! Our cobra was $1500 a month, but the Obama thing knocked it down to around $700. I really hope that Eric is able to find something else really soon or that he doesn't get laid off.

is 1850......i can cobrA or keep our life insurance. if life drops.....i can not get another on written and if erics drops and something happens we are screwed.


He actually has three interviews scheduled tommorrow.....but after taking a 1K pay cut per month (net) earlier this year and all the bills I am at wits end and there is very little left to cut!

SO now I need to sell the darn segway.....I am hoping that since it was an insured prize...... I can do a cash offer instead......

whne it rains it pours in MO and we are flooding now!

Is that 1850 with the Obama 65% reduction, of course, it is only good for 9 months. I am praying for you. I really hope something else is out there.

Oh man! I am praying for you and your family! I know Eric is stressed!

Hang in there. Can the kids be covered under medicaid? In Georgia we have a state insurance for the kids that costs very little. I know you are doing your research!

Hugs!

Hugs and prayers!!! That's a scary situation. When Mike lost his job just over a year ago, we were paying about $1400 a month in Cobra. And all that followed a 60% pay cut a few years before that. It was very tough times!!!! Aren't our husband's in kind of the same line of work?? Or...some sort of employers, anyway? Anything we could do to help?

I don't get on here as often these days...I need to go read some old posts. I didn't realize Emerson's heart has been stopping?!?!?!?! What the heck?! How terrifying!

Well....he has had many interviews and has been short listed for several different positions....though he is getting miore depressed that it is taking so long this time. (I keep telling him let me do all the worrying for us)

But we need some good thoughts tommorrow. He meets with the CEO of the company I would like..... it has great benifits (beter and cheaper than we are paying now and almost the same salary.....I doubt it will mak an actual difference in take home cause we drop a tax bracket so it is essentially the same!)

He is very excited. He did get an offer at about 2/3 to what making now....we would be eligible for free lunches at that amount! (remeber I have 10 at this time) And the benefits cost us abour 900K month and cover very very little w/ a 5 k deductible. If what happened last year ever happened again....it would bankrupt us......

So I am hoping for the best for this interview tommorrow and he has another thursday with another company!

Adrian is starting to figure out something is
wrong" and I do not know what to tell her.......she realized I was worried when I freaked out about when She and Melea dumped a bottle of Miranda's special sunscreen....I was upset abpout the cost to replace it...not the mess!!!! She brought me her piggy bank..................

so I am hoping all goes well............... I am starting to want my 20K per person that the stimulas is costing all americans.... I could stimulate the economy with that amount!

Good note....I have lost about 19 lbs worrying! And they let Eric get the cash equivalent to his segway....so that will buy

us a little more time if necessarry. We canceled the beach vacation! Maybe next year....... I hate saying that ....... when my friend who was my age died last year unexpectedly....I have been trying to stop putting things off till later....cause the ocean ain't going anywhere....... but we had too!

Thanks for all the prayers and great thoughts.......... Eric got a great offer today (a little less than we are making now....but they pay OT and told him to expect it and the benfits are awesome!!!!!!!!!! 197 month for vision (we don't have currentlly), medical (copays 15$ less and medicine 6$ less and er is 50$ less and the hospital coverage is still the same.......100% if in network and they have enough employess That they can absorb all five of my adopted kids!!! and dental (with a 2500 max....2 1/2x what we have now....so I can not have to pay all for the work I need done)

He still has another offer on the tablefrom another consulting company and is waiting for the "permanent"job he really wants to make up their mind. They are down to three!

That one is way cool to.....he would be in charge of all computer it stuff fo a very large world wide company, and he would get to travel.....probably more than I would like.....but he could at least get to meet all you Londeners and Slovig if he got that one (I really hope he gets that offer too......cause I want him to be able to travel the world...... he deserves that....I will go crazy..... but he wants to see stuff (so do I but....it would be amazing)

But at least he got his second choice offer on the table this morning and he feels a lot more confident and they want him to start on the 27th of July so he won't get to go to the cabin with us,,,,,, but it will work out! if he takes it

So I am feeling a lot more confident!!!!!!!!! I know he is!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!

Great news!! I've been watching for an update, wondering how things were going for you... I'm glad Eric has more than one offer to choose from. It sounds like it is all going to work out in the end, but MAN, the stress!! How much weight have you lost by now??
