Quoting Just Ames:" Has he filed for unemployment? I would be out there busting my tail to find something while he waits for unemployment. Good luck "oh yeah, he's planning to. He SAYS he'll have a job by the end of the week. I want to believe him. He is over qualified for a TON of jobs, but he makes seriously good money at the job he was at. So now we have to adjust. And it's not like we're spending frivolously but we pay a lot of money for the house we live in (and we're tied into it until april) and we have 3 kids and all these pets.. After rent and utilities we only have so much money left over, and now it's going to be like halved because unemployment isn't really that much.. *sigh* I just hate that we're finally ahead just to get behind again.
