Hubby was officially laid off today. This is making a big change in our life. Thankfully I have my seasonal job for almost 4 months. I usually get to put my money back to pay my bills throughout the year. But at least we will have it to live on. Unemployment is for only 19 weeks and because they gave him a small severance he cannot apply until the end of January and then it is a two week delay. I have been filling our freezer and stocking other food items. I can stretch my food supply as I have been working on that for a couple of years. Cooking smaller portions so we do not have waste

I just hope Hubby keeps upbeat about this. His age is against him for employment, but he has a great personality so if he can get face to face he will have a better chance. Unfortaunity most applications are on line and no personal contact . We are going to network with all the people we know and hope that helps We just need to make it for about 5 more years.

    So sorry to hear about your husband getting laid off, it seems all of our jobs are gone because of the internet or because they have gone to other countries.
    Something needs to be done this country is really not making new jobs at all, I hope he's able to find something.
    I know it's tough living pay check to pay check we do it also and it's not fun, make sure you use some coupons to when you go shopping there are a lot of sites online. Your right your husband might have a great personality but they won't be able to see it because you have to do online applications.
    God Bless!
