Last year dh's company was bought out by a larger one. They swore nothing would change, but I felt uneasy. Lo and behold a few weeks later dh hears whispers his department is going to be eliminated, being the smart man he is, he changes departments even though it was almost like being demoted. His old department does vanish and the entire store loses all the overtime they have always had. Flash forward a few months overtime is back and dh has moved back into a leadership roll. We are feeling ok, then last month overtime goes away again. And it got worse this wee, when they sent everyone home 6 hours early. Panic set in, but once again they insisted it was a one time thing. Here we are another week later and the entire store has lost hours. A lot of them.
I am not sure how we will get through the next month. Dh is searching for another job, but there aren't jobs to be found.
I thank God everyday I started clipping coupons and stockpiling this year. We have enough to get by for now. I know we are better off than some. Dh still has a job, we have food, my kids have clothes and shoes and we have a roof over our heads. Dh is amazing he keeps getting knocked around, but still manages to take care of all of us. And I will keep praying things get better but over all we are blessed.
