    Celina,

    First, take a deep breath. I am so sorry to hear about this setback in your life. I am quitte familiar with lay offs and also Murphy coming in at every opportunity.

    Can your DH apply for unemployment? Yes, it will be a weeks wait, and a paycut, but it will some money coming in. Also is it a permanent lay off? In the past SO has been laid off quite a bit but for 8 weeks at a time, during which he got um-emp until his return date. What field is he in, can he find something new quickly?

    The weather is getting nice, can you hold a yearsale? Babysit some children in the interim since you are a SAHM? If he cant find a position immediately, and he gets um emp (max in my state is $326 wk), could you get a temp job, if even at a retail place? A fast money job with few hours is waitressing, thats what I do, and when we have a crisis, I just go to work more.

    Remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnell, and you will come thru this.

    Prayers to you.

    Love Megan

    Celina, stay strong, deep breath, and try not to panic. DH will be feeling scared and inadequate. Be patient. You are in our prayers.

    i know you would all get it..
    he's getting a severance package...govt takes half income tax...and then i'm gonna get work here in town since he'll be home with the kids....he can go back to school for a year and get his teaching cert (8000$) so we'll see if he can get help with that.....

    its just such a shock,...we've bought a house and take possession on june 23 which means now we might not get it, yet we are still bound to get the house so we'll talk to the broker tommorrow....we can still afford the house with dh on e-i so that's not a problem....and we cant stay here its been rented out....

    but luckily i had been frugal...so we'll see where it all leads

    I'm sorry this happened. It's gonna be tough but I'm betting this adventure will lead to better things for you & yours. Hang in & hang on and don't forget to holler if you need a hug.
