4th of July

Happy 4th of July!!

It's kinda low-key for me today, just feel like crap, maybe even a little depressed. I dunno. I'm so worried about finances it's not funny. DH has been on furloughs 2 times already and this upcoming paycheck will be no paycheck. We had to dip into savings to make ends meet. DH will get unemployment, but that's not enough to cover anything (maybe food but that's it). I just wish DH's job would call him back to 5 days instead of 4. Hell, at this point I wish they would just call him back. Maybe in a way they did. He's supposed to go to Iowa next week on a job. And go back to the office the following week on his 4 days. I do hope this pans out, I'm so sick of this that my depression and anxiety are coming back in full force after being under control for a year or so. ARUGH I hate this!! I realize that we are not the only ones going through this but this just sucks, BIG TIME!!

On the stitching front, nothing to report. Just been in this funk and it doesn't want to go away. On the home front, Darling Daughter got her temps to drive (scary I know), Middle child is bored silly and little one (he's actually 9) wishes school would start again. I think they like the "routine of school" I know I do. They went to Summerfest on opening day about 10 days ago and had a good time, 2 kids got sunburned a little but they are nice and tan now. A lot of our flowers are blooming nicely and we get humming birds on a daily basis. We saw a mama raccoon with her babies (all 5 of them) in our backyard last night. As cute as they are, I wish they would investigate someone else's yard. Otherwise, everyone is healthy for the time being. But that could change at any minute with kids and all. :)

Hope you and yours had a great 4th of July!

Take it easy Kelly.... It will be ok. I will hope and pray that your hubby's job situation gets better. I also hope and pray that your depression will get better.

I am going through similar situation here as well. I am looking for a job as I lost mine. Hoping that things get better for both of our families.

Holler if you need an ear my dear!

Hang in there. Times are tough all over. Look at the bright side: At least he still has a job -and- you have some savings to dip into. :)

I'll be praying for you and your family, Kelly. See if a few stitches a day helps--tell yourself it's your 'sanity time' and that you are not to be disturbed. I lost my job last year and decided to homeschool instead of looking for another administrative/teaching job, and our state recently "furloughed" all employees (DH is a teaching professor, i.e., not big bucks) for "10 days"--what they really did was they took away 1/2% of their yearly salary but in two months (May and June) which left some families unable to pay their bills but ineligible for unemployment et cetera. We've had to tighten our belts significantly and just keep trusting God to take care of us.
