An Update of Sorts

September 3rd, 2017 at 07:45 pm

Well, DH has work through October. There for a while we weren't even sure he'd go back after this hitch ends or not. His last day should be the 26th. I wish he could extend it a week. All we'd need was one day worked in November and his job would pay for November insurance. But he texted me this morning, so one more month to pay off some of these surprise medical expenses like a new C-pap machine, and the dental work that needs to get done.

I'm not sure what will happen then, other than DH will be looking for work. He may have made enough since May to qualify him again for unemployment, but that's not much. We have $22,784.87 left in the Emergency Fund. Which will get us to March or April if DH doesn't find a job again. We'll get our tax refund as soon as possible and with the medical we've paid out this year that could be enough for an additional 2 months of living expenses.

If there is any money left over after paying all of our bills the next two months than I will save it, too. I'm pretty sure there will be nothing of September's pay, but barring any other medical emergency we should be able to put aside some of October's pay.

I hope he can find something reliable soon. We are as prepared as we can be, but this will be the last time we can go through this without having some serious time to rebuild our savings again. We won't be able to survive it a third time if we wipe out all of our savings.

    Lucky Robin - just a thought/suggestion for a (temporary/seasonal) job for your hubby. Have him check Fed Ex Ground/Home delivery ads on craiglist or call the FedEx terminal. I know at that time of year driver/delivery persons are very very much needed. Just a thought for you guys, with the timing. My husband contracts with fedex and he is always looking for good guys.

    Thanks, Michelle. I'm not sure if he can lift the amount needed for that sort of job, but I'll tell him to look into it at least.
