Taking It Day By Day!!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Well, it`s been a few days since we learned of Hubby`s job loss and are trying to adjust to it. We are taking it day by day, preparing for a Thanksgiving at Hubby`s mom`s and being thankful for all the blessings we do have.
We have been talking a lot about what we want to do next. We have put the truck up for sale because there are only 2 of us and we don`t need 3 vehicles. I have a car and we have a nice van.
Next we are cleaning and purging in the house again, even more than we did before to the point of ruthlessness because we are thinking of selling the house in the spring. We have some minor fixing up to do and it will be ready. We have been here for almost 15 years but it`s getting hard for Hubby to maintain and we have had to hire out for the yardwork, so we think it`s time to move on to something else.
We looked at a nice apartment complex but it was way too much money especially for unemployment money, but we aren`t ready yet anyway.
Tomorrow I have lots of baking to do for Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful Sparkfriends!!

    I'm sorry about the job loss. It's especially difficult at this time of year.
    Hang on and take it one day at the time.
    Maybe you can sell your house and buy a used condo for Over 50's. They take take of everything. Someone may need to sell soon. My BIL/SIL live in one and love it. It was a used one.
    Good luck.

    Prayers going out for you and your family. It is tough to have to deal with changes that take money out of our pockets, but will pray that something will come up for you and hubby soon.
