Well I can't remember what I posted last, but they are going with work sharing. But this being said, anyone who was not finished their probation period at that work, all got laid off, and anyone who wanted a voluntary lay off got it, and anyone who wanted a year leave of absence got it.

Work sharing will start in a few weeks once it is all sorted out.

On another note, my baby (21 months) peed in the potty today, he was so super proud of himself, and I was even more super proud of him. He got a sticker to go on a chart and was very excited about that.

We are getting more and more prepared if DH ends up getting laid off, with the paying bills and getting our prescriptions filled and all that. DD got her glasses and so did I.

But I am finding that my little stockpile is dwindling down and down and down and it is super hard to get anything for a good price here now, I cannot find anything that is worth stocking up on, which is terrible.

Meat and stuff was really expensive lately like 14 dollars for hamburger meat that you would normally pay around 5 or 6 dollars for.

Prices are ridiculous here lately.

    Food costs have been ridiculous. I don't eat much meat, so I don't have to spend a fortune on it, but even fruit is getting pricey!!

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I will do a more detailed blog tomorrow and explain how the work sharing is going to work out, and stuff.

    Dalton ended up peeing in the potty 4 times yesterday. Then today we went out of town, an hour car drive each way, so we did not do much potty training today, when we got home he threw up everywhere, I think it was car sick, and then he went to bed for the night, so back to the potty training tomorrow.

    Yes Mad hen, you are right, everything is major expensive. Fruit, is something that we also consume a lot of, and with the price of it, its just down right ridiculous what we have to pay to get it.
