DH filed for his UE yesterday, and his benefits are better than we had hoped. He's going to get roughly his take home (less commissions) and less what we would be spending on childcare, so that's a plus.
He also went to turn in his store key to his boss yesterday, and his boss wouldn't take it. Instead his boss asked him to work a bunch of days. Less than PT hours, so he can still collect his UE while he works.
So it's good and it's bad. He's still job hunting, but at least things are more stable for him now.
