This. Those things can take a bit to come through but could relieve a lot of financial stress.

Have TOTALLY been there! Try not to freak out or jump to conclusions. Put your efforts into slashing the budget and finding ways to earn more money in the meantime. Hang in there though. It can be stressful and for many people, it is a huge blow to your self esteem to be fired. It's tough getting out there to find a new job.

My step- dad lost his unexpectedly last week. He's already had a few really promising interviews, so we are hopeful.
Prayers and hugs to all of our DS Mommas who are struggling during this holiday season. I hope that this is a blessing in disguise for you all and a short-lived hardship.

Praying! My dh lost his job when my dd was 3 days old on November 15th. We really struggled but managed to work out our budget with unemployment and temp work for 2 years. So sorry this is happening, I know what you are going through.

I hope he finds one quickly. My hubs is unemployed still & with federal unemployment running out at the end of the year, we are getting pretty worried.
