  • DH has been unemployed since Jan 09. It has been hard on him. We pulled the kids out of daycare, saving over $700 a month, and with that and his unemployment we have about the same amount of money each month. He's also doing a lot of things that we were paying other people to do when we were both working because we didn't have time to them ourselves, so we're saving money in other ways too.

  • My DH has been laid off since the second week in Jan. He had been with the company for 7 yrs. He spoke to them in July and they said not to look for a job, that they would have him back. Told him they were noticing a turn around...but he has heard nothing since. His unemployment is running out. I am mad at him because he won't call and say "look if you're going to let me go at least tell me and give me a letter of recomendation" He just sits back and does nothing.
