In vs. Out

First of all, I want to say thank you to every one who linked up last week for my first ever link up! And for those that didn't, get your posts ready for October 30th!

This week I got some pretty life altering news and haven't known what day it was since Tuesday. It's like I'm in a weirdo limbo.


Having more free time than I ever have before

Getting to sleep late

Having the freedom to have whatever schedule I want now (aka going to lunch or shopping in the middle of the day)

Supportive friends and family (and all of my blogger friends' support)

It was actually cold this morning--FALL IS HERE!

Winning giveaways


Getting laid off on Tuesday

The Steelers losing on Thursday

No income


And, in case you missed it, here's what was popular post on Because I Said So this week:


  1. When I was unemployed I had a love/hate relationship with the free time because I had so much time to focus on blogging but having an income was unfortunate but know that better things are coming your way. I am in awe of how positive you've been throughout this experience and think you're the

  3. It really sucks getting laid off. I just spent four months unemployed and it was a drag. Hope you're able to find something soon and you don't have to go too long without a steady income.

  4. Sorry to hear about the job loss! But I'm a firm believer that God will open new and better doors for you (:

  5. I bet sleeping in this morning felt wonderful! Silver lining.

  6. You are just oozing positivity and I love it! I think that resiliency is super important. Congrats on winning some giveaways!!! That's awesome! Looking forward to your next link up.

  7. Just found your blog and love it! You'll bounce right back!

  8. Sorry to hear that! Everything happens for a reason and you're right where you need to be. It will all work out, stay positive. Have a great weekend :)

  9. I am so sorry to hear about your job, but so happy to hear that your family & friends are supportive!

  13. Supportive friends and family - what would you do without them?! But seriously. I love my family SO much and don't know what I would do if I didn't have them close to me.

  16. I'm sorry to hear about your lay off. I was in your shoes exactly one year ago. It feels weird at first to be home but take advantage of the time to do things that you normally wouldn't be able to...sleep in a bit later than usual, go shopping during the day (I felt like such a rebel the first time I was able to go to the mall for the first time on a weekday). LOL...enjoy the time!

  17. I'm so sorry about being laid off. :( You'll find something great.

  19. I think you are doing a great job staying positive! Embrace the positives like sleeping in while they're available, soon enough you'll be working again (:

  20. I am so sorry about the job loss :(

  21. Sorry about your job! I know the feeling. I can't get a job because of my terrible class schedule, and I have virtually NO money!
