Ok, so the company works for did a 10% layoff in February, cut back hours from 40 to 32 and eliminated all over time in March.

We were proactive during this time, our mortgage had to be renewed this year, so we refinanced it absorbing all the dumb debt which would allow us to live on my income should dh be laid off. We closed accounts or reduced limits to minimum for use for reservations etc.

Dh just text me this afternoon with more news.

And for a change, it was POSITIVE! He got a $.50 raise retro to March 13, AND in June they are getting 6-7% raises! Which means things are looking UP.

We are still living tight, building a FFEF, throwing as much into savings as possible. Since dh work is now stabilized and I can maybe take time to breathe!

I'm glad things are looking up for y'all, despite his hours being cut earlier in the year. Thanks for the update.
