No more Cosmetic Gynecology

So, as it turns out, vaginal rejuvenation and breast augmentation surgeries aren’t priority for women whose homes are going into foreclosure, and as a result, Jon was let go from his company in their most recent round of lay-offs. We found out on Monday and BEFORE YOU FREAK OUT let me say that it’s really not THAT big of a deal. Srsly. And I’m not just saying that in a “We-don’t-like-to-talk-about-it-because-we’re-staying-positive” type of way, I mean, for real. I’ve still got my job (which is a great job with some of the best benefits in the industry) and we’ve gotten by solely on my income before (and that was two raises ago..) and we’ve been super smart with our savings (which we probably won’t even have to dip into) so, really – all this means is that Jon is looking for another job that hopefully involves quite a bit less travel than his previous one. Which is good news for me. Maybe this will even give us the chance to move closer to family. Maybe. In the meantime, we’ll keep not buying cars and not buying houses just like always. And that’s all there is to say about it, I guess.

In conclusion, I’d like you all to imagine my disappointment when, the other day, I eagerly tore open a box of one of my favorite candies TO DISCOVER THE FOLLOWING ABOMINATION:

Apparently Swedish Fish, Incorporated has been affected by the economy as well. I demand a refund.
