    Better every day. Our year started out to be our worst ever income-wise, but DH got a 2nd job and then his 1st job picked up again and now we will end the year as our best year ever.

    In DH's work, this can change on a dime, so I'm enjoying it for now!

    Income hasn't changed much, down just a little. But we are trying to build a security blanket so by choice we are cutting back.

    Many things went wrong. My hubby lost his job and it took 6 months to get another one(much less pay and only contract), we miscarried, bill collectors are not understanding or nice, started having seizures. It has not been a good year.
