As I have mentioned, my husband needs a job! The weight of his unemployment has hit me a lot this week. I think that my stress over Jack’s development is also a factor in the stress I have been feeling. It’s clearly not Ryan’s fault that the economy sucks and he can’t find a job. It’s not his fault that his company closed his store. But, I can’t help feeling a little annoyed. I wish he would have looked harder for a job while he was employed. I wish that he would apply for more jobs now.
I’m just frustrated. I work for the State of Illinois. Our budget is not the best and I honestly worry about the security of my job. I feel fortunate to have a job with benefits, but I know that isn’t a given.
I wish that someone would just give him a chance and at least interview him. A person can only take so much rejection before they get down on themselves.
I don’t really talk to Ryan about this because he honestly feels like a failure right now. I don’t want to make him feel any worse than he already does. I am just trying to keep it together and not freak out…it’s not going so well!
