Hard Times in Modern Day

My mother must have driven home the saying that "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all," because I've been silent an entire month. Times have been rough but I have been through worse. The bad part is it hasn't improved yet.

My husband should be home soon. He figured his hours up and he will have twelve hours tonight when he clocks out. This being the last day of the pay week means he will have a lovely check with five hours for one week and twelve for another. I can't wait to pay the bills with that.

We look for jobs here and elsewhere. Elsewhere hires occasionally but here never does. We may just end up traveling to elsewhere.

Ironically, as I was writing this my husband came home with his schedule for next week. He got his six days back.....with THREE HOURS each day. See why I haven't written?


  1. WP: AlI can say is you are not alone. Hang tough as you can.

  2. I have missed reading your posts. Hang in there....:)

  3. Thank you! I just hope it doesn't get worse before it gets better. If it get's much worse I will be in serious trouble.
