And the hits just keep on comin'...

So first Mr. Beachy lost his job. Today I get the news that our office is changing to a 4 day work week. That's a 20% cut in my paycheck. I don't know how to cut 20% MORE out of my budget. We've cut so much already. HELP!

It's so hard right now. My husband lost his job on January 1st and I can't work due to just having had surgery. It's pretty crazy for a lot of people!

oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! Times are definitely hard right now! Maybe you could use that day off to plan more cost saving things???

I'm so sorry. Things are so rough now for so many. My hubby took a huge cut in pay a year ago to work towards a career that would make him happier, and it has been a real struggle. Keep your head up - one day, things will be better!

So sorry to hear that. Many of my friends have lost their jobs (or can't find one) and farmboy's mother just found out that she has to take two weeks off without pay -- and there is a possibility of a 36 hour work week versus a 40 hours work week. I will keep my fingers crossed that things turn around quickly. xoxo

Really sorry to hear that. It's hard to keep a good thought right now. It's tough for so many people. Keep your chin up and try to be positive. And pray, pray, pray for brighter, sunnier days for us all!
