This Sucks

Well it seems I might be loosing my job soon. I was laid off back in April 09 and than started to work for my cousin in June 09 it was 400.00 a week under the table which was really nice because we got alot of bills paid off and actually for once in the last 5 years were somewhat comfortable. Well we had to have some stuff done to house and to DH's truck and now things are a little tight again. Well I just found out this week that my cousin doesn't think she can keep me on any longer. This really sucks as Christmas is right around the corner, daycare just went up, my DH's company is having a big meeting Monday about benefits (we have our health insurance through them) and his paycheck alone doesn't pay our bills... I am feeling a bit sad and unsure of what to do at this point. Just a vent girls thanks for listening.

Have a good Saturday!

What a bummer. :( I'm sorry you're going through such a tough time. What were you doing for your cousin? Is it something you could do for someone else -- i.e., could she set you up with another person who needs similar help? That really sucks, I am sorry. ((((((((((hugs))))))))))

I was just doing admin stuff. It is stuff I could do for someone else. The only trouble is my oldest daughter is in Pre-K MWF and it doesn't start till 9am. It has been hard finding a job that will let me come in after dropping her off. My cousin had no problem with it, I got to her office at 10 and was off at 3 to go pick up the girls from daycare by 4:30pm. I was def a bit spoiled. I'm trying to explore all avenues and stay positive.

I'm really sorry to hear that. :-( I know how hard it is to find a new job. I hope you get lucky and find something quickly! I wish I could offer you more than sympathy!

Thank you, I guess it just makes me nervous because it might hurt my chances of TTC in May if things get worse. I know May if far away but with the way time flies May will be here before I know it!
