or rather, my DH does. He just found out his company is merging/being acquired. He''s survived several rounds of layoffs so far this year, but its not clear how many people will survive this merger process, and whether or not he''ll be one of them. Additionally, there''s a lot of uncertainty about how it will affect people at the company in terms of benefits, working location, etc...

We really can''t afford for him to lose his job right now - I''m still finishing my PhD and I can''t make that go any faster (unfortunately) so I can''t contribute much to the household income. If he can just keep his job until I finish this summer and start my job, then we''ll be OK.

I just really feel for how hard all of this has been on him (and all the other people he works with!) - the constant anxiety, the stress, the pressure. I know many others have it worse in this dreadful economy, but if you''ve got some dust to spare, we could really use a little bit right now.

Thank you sweet Skippy - you are so supportive. I am trying to be there for him as best I can, but it is hard when I am also so stressed out about trying to finish my PhD as well. The support means a lot.

I''ll be thinking about you and your DH, Amber!
Aw...thanks IWPO - if we can just make it to Texas in July/August in one piece and with our finances, psyches (and our cats - driving with three of them will be an adventure!) intact, I''ll be a happy camper

I TOTALLY want to meet all the TX PSers - whichever city I end up in (Dallas or Houston) I''ll for sure be spending plenty of time in the other city for work, so there should be lots of opportunities to meet up

Thanks Lauren
I really really want to meet you guys - I was bummed we didn''t have time when we were down there in January, but they pretty much scheduled us all day all the days we were there (which was fine, it was incredibly fun). But we''ll probably be out apartment-hunting in July or so, so maybe there will be time then

Times sure are tough, and stressful as well. I hope his job is secure as long as you both need it to be!
