Financial blows

Just when things are going good, and you set yourself some great financial goals, like paying off your house, something happens.

Not as bad as a job loss, nor injury, nor death, but my husbands wage has been affected. It is not so bad that we wont be able to afford to live, but it does put a stop on our savings.

There is a silver lining though, it has given him the much needed push to apply for a different job that he has been talking about for over a year. Only drawback is it can take up to 2 years to get in.

So we've looked at all our options. We can take it on the chin for now and work on being more frugal. I could go back to work or we can look at other ways to bring in an income with me still at home.

We are leaning towards looking at ways for me to earn from home. I already do a bunch of things, but will let you know what we end up doing.


  1. You've just gotta love life! I'm sure with all your skills and great idea on here you'll come out on top!

  2. I hope so! Thanks for the support.
