And the rain came tumbling down...

Yesterday they layed off 30 people where Adam works. That's about 40 percent of the company.
Today they cut everybody's hours. No one can get more than 32 hours a week.
And if things don't pick up there will be another round of lay offs in a couple of months.
If things still don't pick up they might cut benefits.

We put in an offer on a little fixer-upper house yesterday. Now I don't know if we'll still be able to afford it. Especially because we'll have to put some new flooring in at least a couple of rooms before we move in. Ideally we would like to replace most of the flooring in the house, since it's a foreclosure and it's pretty hammered. But it's not looking ike we'll be able to afford that. luckily even if they accept our offer we still have ten days to back out. So we will have to do some major praying and budgeting to see if buying a house is still even possible. Adam is talking about looking for a part time job, but I would hate that. When would I see him if he was working two jobs? ugh.
Wish us luck, everybody.
