Hey everybody! Sorry about not posting for a week. Seriously, it's tough getting into a new schedule when you are so used to something entirely different. But, the job is good so I'm hoping it turns into a long-term thing!
You know how they say, when it rains, it pours? I feel like I live this over and over in my life. Sometimes it's good but mostly it's bad, which I don't understand. I live a pretty decent life and I don't screw people over and I feel like I'm on the good side of Karma. Apparently, I'm not. I was laid off in January, from a job I had given my ALL to for SIX YEARS, and was without a job until last Monday. I got a job, which I am super thankful for, but you want to know what? Karma turned around and smacked me and told me not to get my hopes up.
Husband got laid off Friday.
The rush in me getting a job was so that while we transition to my MIL's house and get everything taken care of, we could make ends meet. My new job is by no means a super great income, and is now the only income we have. I will be making about a third of what he was making, which means our income just shrunk by about 66%. I don't make enough to pay our bills. I don't make enough to pay even half of our bills. My only hope is that we can sell our house quickly, because that's the biggest payment we have.
I totally know that it could be a lot worse and that we could both be without jobs and have no home to live in, but this sucks. I feel so horribly for people that are even worse than we are now because I'm so stressed and freaking out, and I know it could be worse.
Do you know what the worst thing in the world is for someone with OCD? Screwing with their routine [like, hypothetically, a new job or a husand without a job]. If this week hasn't wrecked me for life, I don't know what will.
