Hey everyone!

After about a million cups of tea, a million hugs from cats, and a few moments of OH MY GOD WHAT AM I GONNNNA DOOOOOOOOO!!! ....I've had time to calm down a little bit regarding my terrible news and had time to just think about what we're going to do. I've applied for the at home positions that they had opened up, but I won't find out about whether or not I have that until the end of November the earliest so... Yeah.

In the meantime, Josh and I have decided to try not to stress out about it - we've NEVER fought about money (or really anything, for that matter.) and we really don't want to start now. So, we've decided to save as much money as we can and spend as little as we can as well. We've decided to stop eating out (we are notorious for going for coffees and such - it doesn't cost a lot up front, but 6 dollars here, and 6 dollars there or whatever every day or every few days? That shit adds up a month.) and only eat out once a week at the most. We won't buy, er, useless things, unless we have the money for it. We've cut down on bills as well and just doing as much as we can. I just want to assure everyone that I will still have a job until April it's just...

Time flies, so I'm sure April will hit us in the ass before we know it.

If we don't find anything we do get severance after all of this, so..that's...Good...I guess. I THINK it's based on how many hours worked during the time you were there instead of how many weeks you were there (like it normally is done from what I understand) I doubt I would get all that much, but it would be enough to pay the bills and rent for maybe two or three months.
The important thing is not to sit on our asses and wait for that to happen, so we'll keep an eye out for jobs. In the meantime I'm focusing on being as healthy in mind and body as I can since that does help out tremendously with all of this.

Anyway, in the meantime, I'm going to be offering commissions to help earn some money, so I will have a seperate journal regarding that once I get my prices in order. So if you are interested, keep your eyes open! :dance:

I want to thank you all for your concern and encouraging words! It really means a lot to me. I know I haven't been the greatest at responding to messages recently and such but I really do appreciate all comments, you are all so sweet and I love you all!

 ...On another note, my salad was really gross. Molty lettuce leaves are not appetizing at all. 0.0

Awww I'm sorry to hear about you guys' situation as well. It really sucks, worrying about money and crap that I hate worrying about. It's just not fun and adds stress. I hate all the what ifs ARGH!
