It Hit Me By Surprise

My husband was laid off from work, the work that pirated him two years ago. He had add on bonus and all of our belongings were moved for free. He swore he will never work with this bunch of people who don't know the value of work. He always go to work the earliest. He worked overtime all the time yet he was laid off. Oh well he's not the only person being laid off to work, our neigbor was laid off before him and they worked in the same company. No projects were coming in so human resources were minimized. Hubby came home teary-eyed and I did not know what to do. I just told him not to worry because he can still find another job. he has structural designer skills and not a lot of people have a keen eye for details. It's just a sad thing. My family is not the only one hit by this crisis. The blow was just sudden that it shocked us. We are paying mortgage and taxes...With nothing coming in... now what? How can we pay the two thousand house mortgage and five thousand property tax? Waaa. I hope and pray there is light at the end of the tunnel.

My First Time...

We just got home from the movie theater. Today of all days is unforgettable for me, you wanna know why? Because today is my first time to go out and watch a movie with hubby and kids in a theater in my three years of living in the US. I remembered that I watched movies almost every week when I was in the Philippines because it only cost me a couple of dollars to get in but here it will cost you much more than that so we opt to just rent a movie every week using netflix. My daughter got a movie giftcard for amc theater that's why we were able able to go. Thanks to her friend who gave it during her birthday. We were debating last night on what to watch. My daughter wanted to watch Shrek3 but my son wanted to watch The Last Airbender and oh that's what I want to watch too so majority won. We went out and watched the Airbender. I liked it and most of all I was thankful that hubby went to watch with us. I thought he would just drop us off but he parked the car and bought us some snacks before heading to the movie.
