we are blessed

As some of you may know, Nathan was laid off 3 weeks ago from Dynamic Diesel. The economy in the area just wasn't doing too well. I think everyone knows how the economy is doing nation wide, and on top of that Boeing has been on strike. Between these 2 events, work slowed down almost to a halt. Nathan being the newest addition to the company became the lowest man of the totem pole. So, he was put on 'temporary' laid off.

He handled this much better than I did. I think I spent the rest of the day crying on and off at work, thinking about the most horrible things that could happen next (it was more than slightly ridiculous, but scary none the less). But Nathan took it like a champ, he saw it as a much needed vacation. Not that he wasn't looking for a job, but it was a little bit of time for him to not be working and relax.

After applying to a few different places and actually turning down a job, we have found a very nice fit for him. Its called Alignments Plus, located in Bellevue WA. He is liking it so far and it seems the guys are pretty cool.

I wanted to thank everyone who has us in their thoughts and prayer. I'm getting a little choked up just writing this. This experience has helped Nathan and I become that much closer and has taught me a thing of 2 about the real world and being an adult. Neither or which, I found out, I really like all that much. All of the kind words, deeds and thoughts have not gone unnoticed. We love and appreciate all of our family and friends!!
