I am sorry that I have been unavailable the last couple days. It has been a little overwhelming and tough for me.
This past Friday, things became extremely hard for my family.
After three years of working for the Sheriff's Department, my Husband along with 5 co-workers were laid off. We were not given any notice and the reason behind it was that the Sheriff got into a fight with the Probation Department, and got back at them by closing my Husbands department down.
We were finally in a comfortable position with life, to have it ripped out from under us right before the holidays.
On top of dealing with the huge loss of income, I have also ruptured my right ear drum, and can not hear out of it at all. It is very painful, and makes normal day to day things hard to accomplish.
I am trying my hardest to help my Husband and his co-workers get their jobs back. I am heading to the Sheriff's Office shortly to find out what can be done.
Please keep your fingers crossed for my family and for the other families involved in all of this.
None of them deserve what has happened.
