Here’s the deal.
The company that Dustin works at hasn’t been getting as much business lately. Its gotten bad enough that a few weeks ago they started cutting hours. Dustin drives 45 minutes to and from work and basically he would show up and if it was slow they’d send him home. A waste of money especially with cut hours! A few days ago they cut a few part time people and have said that at least through June all the full time people would keep their hours and they’d go from there. However, it’s been rough.
You see, first there’s the loss of money. We’re okay, of course, I have backup money but it makes me angry because things were going so well. So to have those loss of hours is really frustrating. Especially considering that we had a lot of plans this summer and we had to cut a few.
The other problem is that after last year and my job loss I freaked out. I never want to be in that spot again and even with the possibility of job loss I got scared. Last year was so rough and we were completely living paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes I have no idea how we paid our bills and still managed to eat. I don’t want to go to that place again. This, of course, caused a lot of tension between Dustin and me. We’ve been fighting a lot and it hasn’t been fun. I know he wants me to not worry but that’s what I do.
I know somehow some way things will be okay. But it’s still scary. And frankly I’m really sick of money being the reason we fight and the reason we’re stuck where we are. Seriously it’s just stupid.
Hopefully things will pick up at Dustin’s job and all will be well. It’s supposed to pick up next month and everyone’s jobs have been gauranteed through at least June.
Needless to say thoughts and prayers would be much much appreciated. You all have helped me so much and I am so thankful to have so many friends all over the world thinking about my little family.
Happy Monday all.
