Wow! It has been over a month since I made an entry. DH's company closed down as of the end of December. They always close down over the holidays anyway so that means they shut their doors just in time for Christmas. What a lovely Christmas present. Fortunately, DH was already somewhat worried about their future and was already searching for a new job. He just got the news today - offer of a position with a large company selling building supplies but siding etc. This company is one of the largest national suppliers of siding and focuses on both large accounts (builders, home improvement stores etc.) as well as small accounts like home remodelers etc. What this means is that their business is not as heavily impacted by the slow down in new construction. It will be significantly less money for the first year or so til he builds up accounts but it is a job with a good future and lots of room for career growth. All in all I am happy about it, now it will just be my job to constantly remind him about the need to be frugal for the next year or so. Wish me luck!
