Bad news all around

Matt got laid off today. Apparently his former company is laying off about 800 people today. We're pretty depressed about it. At least we have my job, but Logan's college fund may take a temporary hit.

Our nanny also had a miscarriage today. It wasn't completely unexpected, but it's never easy. Poor girl. I want to just cry for her.

I had to tell her we would have to cut back on her hours some, but we'll still need her when Matt goes looking for a job.

And we're still going to San Antonio, darn it!

I'm so sorry you had so much bad news all at once - and when you'd just managed to get away from it all too! I hope that the rest of April treats you better.
