A Bump in the road...
There's a bump in the road for our family... more like a hill really. My husband is getting laid off on Friday. He's a Union electrician. We've hung in this long and are thankful for that.
My mind is reeling right now, knowing unemployment checks will barely make the house payment let alone pay all the other bills and feed us. I've already cancelled all the extras that we're used too. My husband is quitting the bowling team and we will tighten our belts as best we can. Shop at the discount food stores...blech. Use the library for free entertainment.
I can't help thinking about winter (higher utility bills) and the Holidays fast approaching. Well that is just something I must not worry about now.
You know, we do live in the state with the highest unemployment rate... it really sucks here!
I just have to keep calm and upbeat for my kid's sake right now. I'll think of this as an adventure, a journey, part of life. What really p's me off is how hard I've always worked at paying bills on time and having good credit... I can see that all going down the toilet fast.
Oh well, we'll just keep on keeping on. Hopefully the internet will stay turned on... if I disappear you'll know why:)
