For those of you who don't know already, I lost my job last Friday. Merry Christmas. Well, I am on the fence about what to do now. Get a temp job over Christmas because everyone is hiring, or do I hold out for something that might be a little more permanent. Decisions.
This time at home, reflecting on the finances has made me realize how much we already have. Now, not having a job is going to make the monthly payments a little tight, but it could be so much worse.
For example, we both have coats, hats scarves and gloves to get us through the cold.
The light in the kitchen burned out yesterday, and we had light bulbs in the pantry.
I amy not like cooking, but we actually have the makings for quite a few good meals. Even if it is spaghetti a few nights a week.
We have plenty of blankets so we can turn the heat down. Save a bit of money on the bills.
I have great parents who are willing to let me do my laundry over at their house a couple times a week. And feed us all the time. Lots of food coming from my parents.
There are lots more things, but those are a few of the ones I have been thinking about recently. Oh, and I am very grateful that Nik got that raise a couple months ago, so at least we know we can survive off his income if we have to.
Thanks to everyone who has helped us out so far, and to those who have prayed for us!
