Dh got laid off a few months ago, he had a good paying job, but had only been there about 9 months. (He had been previously out of work for 2 years due to a work injury, he went to school & got his cdl after he recovered) So even though he recieves unemployment, it's less than half what he was making. We've both been looking for work since (dh has a record, most companies he's spoken with want at least one more year between his release and present, which I grasp, but it's been 7 years, he hasn't gotten in any trouble in more than 8. I don't have much of a work history at all & have applied everywhere in town with no results.
We are basically living hand to mouth, his ue is spent on bills long before we even see it. The last 2 checks have been late due to Christmas & New Years, dh checked his account today, it's not there. Went out to the car so he could go to the ue office (they have a direct line, instead of calling from home & being put on hold for hours or not getting through at all) he has the bi-weekly confirmation email. I don't get it.) Tbe car won't start. Our rent's due (our landlord was nice enough to let us pay half 2 weeks ago & half today, I made an agreement with the water company that I'd give them $30 today, the car needs gas before it can go anywhere significant, like idk, the grocery store? My mom i'm sure will be calling shortly to ask for the money we owe her, the dog is out of food, we've got 3 diapers left. I'm at my damn wits end here. This is just another thing that has been thrown at us that is going to keep breaking us apart. I don't know how much more we can take!!!
Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
