Better than -0-

May 12th, 2008 at 02:12 pm

Well, hubby received his first state unemployment payment since becoming "a man of leisure". State of Texas sends debit cards, not checks, and weekly amounts are direct deposited onto it each week. So that is helpful. I am still waiting on my stimulus payment, which I thought would be direct deposited last Friday but, alas, no sign of it. I have a $440 check coming from my part time job, so all in all, we are surviving. He sent out 6 more resumes today and hopefully will get some interviews from those.
In a related note, we thought we were going to have to take DD out of gymnastics until hubby found a new job (fees for classes are $135 per month for 4 hours a week). But, her coach, who has a 6 week old baby, traded me class fees for babysitting two days a week. So DD was able to continue with classes and helps me babysit the baby. A side benefit is that she is learning to "work" to get the things she wants. A good lesson I think.
I feel optimistic that things will be looking up for us soon.

    Sounds like you're meeting the challenges head-on, and with a great attitude. It's great that you are able to exchange babysitting for your daughter's class.

    One door closes and another opens... Its good you are open to other ways to pay for things.

    What wonderful works God shares with us. Remember, He does not always answer our prayers in ways we would like or expect, but He does answer them. God bless you!

    Mooshocker-I have come to understand that. And I have truly changed the way I pray. I ask for strength and wisdom, courage and patience.
