So I have decided that I am just going to pull an ostrich and bury my head in the sand until things clear up.
Friday, 20 min before I got off work, Kevin called me to tell me they had laid him off at work. Great. I really don't know how much more I can take. I am sick of bad news. I am ready for good news. I had a gray cloud hanging over me all weekend because of it.
I am trying to be hopeful. Last time he got laid off, back in Feb., he was only off for 6 days before he found another job. It's just that we can't make ends meet on my dwindling paycheck. I am talking to my boss after lunch and letting her know that they need to do something to keep me here or I am going to start looking elsewhere. You can't keep cutting my paycheck and expect me to still drive an hour to work. Help me out here. I am just tired and frustrated. It's awesome looking in your cabinets for food to make for dinner and tryng to figure out what to do with the 6 items you have. Our savings account was smashed by my medical bills-which we are still working on paying off. I just don't get how two hard working people like Kevin and I keep getting the short end of the stick?! I want a break.
My family keeps telling me that God only gives you what you can handle, but damn it, I am at my breaking point.
I have so many things I should be happy about right now, but making our house payment, having food to eat, and gas to get to work are out-weighing those positive things right now. Where is the light at the end of the tunnel because right now the batteries are dead in my flashlight.
