Lost my job this morning

Lost my job this morning. My boss said I was not a "good fit". Merry Christmas to us. (That was sarcasm by the way) Now we have no medical insurance and no income. I am going to have to come up with something to be able to pay our bills and pay for medical insurance for our son and 2 granddaughters. Any ideas?

Bummer.  I have no other suggestions than unemployment and hitting the pavement looking for something else.  Hugs to you and hope you find something else to do soon.  What is it they say, no door closes without another (and hopefully better) one opens.

Major big bummer! Was it a good fit? Apply right now for unemployment and start looking. No matter what, keep a positive attitude that something better IS going to come along. You can get through this.

Aside from unemployment you could try the government.  You don't get much but the insurance is good.

 Oh no, I'm sorry :(  Have you worked there long enough to get un-employment?   (((hugs)))

I called unemployment this morning and they said I have to wait until 21st to apply. (I am on paid admin leave) until the 20th. It was a state job cooking for a juvenile facility so I had really good benefits. At least that gives me an extra 2 weeks of pay. I was thinking maybe opening a day care.  At least I don't have to work on Christmas Day. Now I get to spend it with my family. at least that is one positive thing. Glad I was done shopping for Christmas.

I am so sorry.  The stores always need extra help for the Christmas season, so maybe you could do that for the next few weeks at least.
