It has been amazing to read everyone's comments. It is funny how good it makes you feel. Like you have people...and they have your back. Cortney and I both woke up today (after a night of little sleep and tossing and turning...and just holding on tight to each other) feeling better. I didn't feel like I needed to throw up, I felt calm and ready to get things rolling. It is funny when bad things happen...you don't know how to get back going in your regular life. Someone knocked on our door the other night and left the "neighborhood phantom"...and I didn't know if I could just go back to normal life and make cookies so we could take it to the next people. But I did, and I feel a lot more normal now.
Oliver woke up this morning and said he didn't have to go to school today because daddy wasn't at work...and when dad isn't at work then it isn't a school day. It was nice to have Cortney here in the morning. It isn't something I usually have.
I have also had a crazy "so you lost your job miracle"...Robbie today just started pooping and peeing on the potty with out my help. (and trust me yesterday he was NO WHERE near potty training).
Cortney and his boss Brian managed like 5 other employees. And they were not laid off. But this morning when the owner's son came to do Cortney's job...not one employee showed up. Every single one of them quit. So down at the links the greens weren't mowed today...because no one from the landscape company knew how to do it. So that helps with the sting a little. I know I shouldn't want revenge...but it was so amazing to see the support that their crew gave them. The whole maintenance crew hung out today...newly unemployed and went golfing in Spanish Fork. It helped Cortney to get his mind off of things.
Thanks to everyone...I feel your support.
I am so thankful for our plethora of friends and family. Wow.
