    Default husband lost his job this morning

    so big bomb dropped

    been living paycheck to paycheck, short hours, sold his bike to catch up rent and buy him something he can drive back n forth to work and save gas..since company refused to put gas in their vehicles anymore.

    so now middle of the month one more short check coming..i guess i should be thankful the rent was paid for october, the vehicle is paid for october, the light bill is paid

    still got a chunk of stuff to pay

    comcast the lowest they will take is $203.00
    sirrus gave us 6 months free service when i called today
    stopped netflix 3 months
    can postpone a loan payment $122 10 days i think
    owe mom $85.00 but she pays me weekly for cleaning so i will clean "FREE" for a few weeks
    small dr payment $25
    vet payment $100.00
    at&t will probably work with me $155
    dads birthday probably wont have no money for him
    rent $885
    sons first school pics $14.00

    waiting on a $75 puppy deposit, was supposed to make it this past weekend..
    $600 paycheck
    owed $50 from a long time ago stud service but i hate to keep asking i got $100.00 2 weeks ago

    i still have 4 yorkies left for deposit..usually sell quickly and i have reduced the price hoping to get more deposits. applied for unemployment but i think that takes a month to get and he has never received it so i think it would be a good amount but im sure he will have another job before that takes effect..he has an offer but he is suppose to talk tonight with them and see what the offer is ..might be too little to take never know...

    i pray that things work out...they always do...im not stressing YET

    So sorry to hear the latest news - sounds as if you have a plan in motion. Please go after the stud service fee - you are owed the money and deserve it. Please keep us updated as to how things are going.

    Sorry to hear this! The best news is that you already know what you still have coming in and what needs to go out. So many times people lose their jobs and they have no idea where their finances stand. Best of luck to you and keep us informed!

    Hang in there! If everything goes smoothly with the unemployment application, he should have his first check the 3rd week as the 1st week is the "waiting week" (I was on unemployment a bit this past year) and if I remember correctly, I got my first check like sometime during the 3rd week (but don't take my word on it, I'm sure there are things/situations that could happen that I don't know about)

    I'm so proud of you for having such a calm head. It helps a lot knowing where you stand~ it did for us when dh was laid off.
    I hope he gets the job. Hang in there!!!!
