All I need is some Sweet T and 4 C's

I am so glad that when kids are young  they don't know any better.  I am glad that I have gotten better at handling and hiding my stress and not allowing it to take me over and ruin everyones weekend.  Today is and has been a day of shit at work.  I knew it was coming, the pay cuts, the lay offs, the shit storm, the closed door meetings about how much money we are losing and how bad we are sucking.  The hammer fell.  The hammer fell on some of the workers.  My buddy / co worker / co manager got a cut and shorter hours.  The guy in front of me got a cut and might get worse.

The problem is that I got called in for a closed door meeting, and was told about other employees and then told some things about me, and then asked about what would I do with these other employees.  Not a good spot to be in, but I had to put some people in the line of fire.  I mean, if I am going to lose money off of my pay check, then some of the non workers need to fucking go somewhere else.  I guess it is do some cutting or get cut.

It sucks that I have had my family in such a nice comfort zone style of living and now I am struggling to make money, it puts us in a worse position.  I hate having to tell my wife "Well we just lost some more money".  I know it could be worse, and not have a job or have to look for one, but it still sucks and when this happens to me, at the moment I don't give a shit about anyone else but my T and the C's.

I am not getting a pay cut as of now, but I was told that "COULD CHANGE".   That is good, well great news, considering that everyone around me is getting slashed.  It still makes me wonder what should I do.  Am I safe?  Am I secure?  Probably not, but with the way things are out in the real world, I guess I gotta stay put.

I have already decided that I am going to do something I never wanted to do and I am going to cut out the satellite bill and just go cheap and keep a few channels.  We cut stuff everywhere else, shit we don't even have health insurance, and fuck I fell down the damn stairs again this weekend.  I do that alot.  Thank  god T saves alot of money with the coupons.  T tells me we will be ok, and she is normally right so I am going to side with her.

I just want my wife and kids to be happy and I know that as long as we are together we will be.  I stopped drinking a year or so ago and that helps at home, I am not so much an asshole anymore, and it is so much more fun walking in the door grabbing a hug and a kiss rather than a beer or a drink.  I may not seem to feel better but I am sure my liver and kidneys feel better and are thanking me for it. 
I guess I can always fall back on my reality tv or blogging career.  Hell I could even become a male stripper, I know I could at least make enough to pay for the.......well maybe not a male stripper.  Maybe a male striper, like a candy striper or a paint stripper, something along the lines of that.

Well I don't care what happens from here on out, because I know  that when I walk through that door, I am going to have 4 C's and 1 T that are going to be there to greet me.

Hang in there! I've seen some of the pics, and I'm not sure the male stripper thing is gonna work for you, so keep your day job!

It's undoubtedly going to be rough, but you have people all over the country praying for ya ... at least as far as the Pacific NorthWest!

Candy striper! LOL! Hey, hang in there. You sound like an awesome father and husband; that's more than a lot of guys can say, employed or not. Your family WILL be fine, T is right. Isn't she always? :)
