this is harder than i expected(going back to civillian life)
Whe had decided to stay in the ft.lewis area instead of moving to our hometown(also in wa). I had gone to school and gotten a job in our hometown while he was deployed. The jobs in the ft.lewis area are way better paying and were hiring so we agreed to give ourselves the 90 day to get jobs. Well nothing happened. Both of us applied anywhere and everywhere and got nothing. We finally decided to cut our losses and move home.
I got a job here(hometown) a week before moving back, its a full time well paying and has benifits.
That's about where our luck ended though.
The moving company over charged us by $200 and is refusing to pay it back.
Unemployment is being difficult and we have gone 2wks without that.
Dh was driving last night and accidently ran over a piece of metal in the road. Both our fron and back tire are flat, the mettal is lodged in the rear and its torn to crap. We live in a smaller town , the only place we could remember that was open was walmart. Got it there and they have no tires and won't for a week. On top of that we can not leave it there or it will be towed. So our next option is to put the spare on the back and limp it to costco(we forgot they were open on sundays) which is across the street. Pay for an expensive tire and labor. All so I can get to work at 8am.
Which brings me to the next thing. My company only has 1 payday but the option of a draw on the 20th. The day I started everyone was filling out their time cards to be paid on the 5th. So I missed that. I will not get paid until the 20th at the earliest if I take the draw(which I will) or wait until january 5th!
We have been using our savings for everything and its just about gone. I thought we had prepaired well enough for this but its like one thing after another and its wearing on us.
Dh is starting college soon to be a teacher. I just don't want him to feel like he has to try and get back in because we are struggeling, I know its only temporary but its still hard.
