Speechless

I'm not really sure what to say about what's going on. Yesterday Jonathan got laid off. His job is ending May 1st and he has 14 weeks of severance pay after that which will take us to mid August.

Jonathan is dealing with it really well. He's sad because he loves his job, but he knows it's not personal.

I'm all over the map. One moment I'm fine, the next I'm freaked out.

We don't expect the economy to turn around any time soon. At the same time, Austin is a good place to be right now. Jonathan is doing everything he can, talking to people and getting his resume together. And all we can really do past that is wait, pray, and hope for the best. This could be a great opportunity.

You could always move to San Antonio...

We'd really prefer not to move at all, but we aren't going to limit ourselves geographically either. It would more likely be Dallas or Houston before SA. Jonathan was offered a job in Taiwan a few years ago... that could be interesting.
