We had a rough day at work – they passed out “pink slips” to 6 people this morning. It was awful. When Darlene told me she was having to leave I almost cried. It’s not fair. I helped her carry a box of stuff to her car and then drive off to a husband already out of work and two little kids. I don’t know how they will get by without her paycheck.
Why did they wait until this morning to fire people? I can’t believe my friends and colleagues spent the weekend thinking everything was great and went shopping or what not and then come in Monday morning to find their job is gone. No more paycheck, no health insurance, no notice. It’s not fair.
I was looking through some of the holidays we celebrate and noticed one that I thought was interesting. Log Cabin Day was started by Virginia Handy in 1986. Based in Michigan, the day promotes awareness of the rustic simplicity of log cabins.
There are still many of these wonderful examples of early American life available to see and visit. Check your local listing and you will most likely find one near you. Early Americans were used to these types of structures and were served well by them. I join with the many other people who respect the value of these simple structures and the role they played in our history!
We are having a big celebration around our house today. Our daughter Megan is having her 21st birthday today. It’s been hectic this week as we have been preparing her party. We have many guests coming to wish her a happy birthday.
In a way we are kind of sad. We feel that we will see less and less of our daughter in the near future as she is also engaged to be married. On the other hand, we are proud of her accomplishments to date and hope she will have a great future.
