I feel for you BBB, my employment status in the coming months is very much in doubt.

I hope everything works out for you.

(Maybe if I get laid off we should start up a Buddhist commune -- Texas Theravadin Trailer Park?)

BBB

Bad economic times. I hope you find work. I hope you have family & friends who can help you if required.

Be careful of pride. We are born in a world in which are the norm. It is like we are a guest in a world where vicissitudes is its nature.

Been there...done it...it sucks...but it passes. The important thing to remember is that "it passes". Good luck...

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

It's a crummy thing to happen, especially with parenthood coming at you fast, but I hope there will be new and better opportunities down the road. For whatever it's worth, my advice would be to focus on not letting the stress get the better of your relationship... you and your gal are both naturally going to be upset and worried (having a new baby is a high anxiety time even under good economic circumstances), so remind yourself to take a deep breath when you feel overwhelmed. It's all anicca, anatta, dukkha. Of course, you know this already!
