Well, That's That

October 27th, 2017 at 11:42 am

DH was laid off on the 20th and returned home on the 21st. Today is the last paycheck. Time to put our heads down and hope and pray that the $25K in savings will be enough to get us through until he finds another job. I really wish they had kept him on until the 28th like they'd first said. With cutting the time, it meant there was nothing extra to put into savings after all, and we will have to draw for December expenses in late November.

This is going to be a rough road to go down again. This is one of the worst times of the year to be trying to find work in his industry.

I won't bring in much with Thrive Life, but I'll get something. I bring in a little with the youtube channel. But it is so little as to make no difference. I wish I wasn't disabled. I'd go work at McDonald's if I could stand that long.

    Praying your husband finds gainful employment very soon. Hang in there. I'm sure this is scary. You have prepared well though.

  3. Bluebird Says:

    I'm so sorry. Will unemployment payments help? Is he eligible? You've prepared the best you can.

    Unemployment will all go to pay the COBRA.

    I am so sorry, Robin.

    Lucky Robin, have you considered work at home type jobs? Established companies such as American Express, U-Haul, and Disney hire employees to work from home. These are mainly customer service type jobs.

    Are you on Facebook? Join the group "Virtual Workers of America". It is a large group and they share leads on this sort of job when companies are hiring.

    LR - it may be temporary, but have your husband call the fedex ground facility in your area. they need temp seasonal drivers always. Decent money at this time of year. Hope this helps.

  12. laura Says:

    So sorry to hear. That really sucks. May it be a short time of unemployment. Prayers offered.

  13. PatientSaver Says:

    I'm very sorry, LR. I certainly know the unemployment road, and it ain't fun, but I also know you are resilient and you've been through worse. Michelle had a good idea: how about temporary, seasonal drivers for UPS or FedEx?

    Do you ever have focus groups in your area? Are you near a city?

  14. LuckyRobin Says:

    Thank you, everyone, for all the support and ideas.

  15. starfishy Says:

    oh, no - i'm so sorry to hear this news. good luck as you move forward. Frown

    I am very sorry. I am glad that your husband is home to help with the difficult time you are going through with your FIL.
