A Sad Pink Day

Roxy Women's Lido Slip-On Loafer,White/Pink,8 B USToday is the day the pink slips have to go out to teachers around California.
Drew happened to get his early, since he wasn’t going to be in the states at the time they needed to give it to him.

We’re not sure what this means for us.  I vowed if we ever got another one that we’d be outta’ here… but our options aren’t as vast as they once were.

But, either way we’re both praying to know the right things to do.  We’re also not worrying about it until the mister is back from Ireland.

There’s always a lot of variables, and they’re required to hand us the slips if there’s a chance they’ll eliminate teachers.  In this case, the elementary teachers might be able to take Drew’s job, because they have higher seniority.  They’d still have high school music, they’re considering cutting elementary music.

Just part of my stressful Friday.  Drew got it on Thursday afternoon right as he was trying to do grades, and lesson plans and pack and try not to lose is mind.

Friday morning add a tsunami warning… and well… it did bring things into prospective.

And now he’s golfing in Ireland. 

Big hugs to anyone else who’s getting a pink slip.  Regardless of how they put a spin on it, it still hurts.  Lots of work for little appreciation.

P.S.  Is this deja vu for anyone else?  Wasn’t I just writing this same post about myself a while ago?

    I am so sorry. We considered moving to CA several years ago for J to take a teaching job there, but it just sounded not quite right. I dislike change like this, I have a hard time with it. You’re in my thoughts!

    I’m so sorry Hilary. Let me know if there’s anything I can do (other than pray for you guys, that’s already on my list.)

    I’m sorry to hear that, Hilary. I hope things will get better soon. All I know is Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us. And I heard a cool quote the other day: “Today’s trial is tomorrow’s testimony”

    Your family will be in my prayers :)

    That REALLY stinks. Somehow, I just knew that Drew was so good & appreciated that it wouldn’t happen, but I guess I was wrong. I’m thinking of you and praying for you.
