Not just a regular 'job' thing

Things are not too swell around here.  On top of some recent money issues (I know, who DOESN'T have them??), my poor hubby just found out that he's getting moved off his crew.  If you have a firefighter in your family, you know how much this turns life upside down.  

Right now he's on a crew he loves, which is a big deal.  These guys aren't just coworkers, they're family and they have to trust each other.  So just the crew change is traumatic.  But on top of that, he's being forced to switch shifts which is huge.  Each shift has it's own personality, and Ryan is definitely a B-shift guy.  And all his friends are on B-shift, so right now they have the same days off.  More then just that though, we plan our lives around his shift schedule, so now everything we've planned in the next year is going to be completely in question.  The Chicago wedding in Oct, the wedding job in November, our Disneyland trip in December... they are all planned on his B-shift schedule.  And, you know, our trip in 4 weeks for Cancun.  

I know all that is insignificant compared to how upset he is about the change in stations and crew.  I feel so bad for him, and I can't do anything to make it better.

:( That sounds really hard. I hope he will like his new shift, but I can imagine he'll really miss his other group.
