Being Broke Sucks!

Being broke really sucks and I am sure you all agree with me. It's like I can never catch up. I got my tax check and I paid off some bills and then I attempted to save but it seems like i keep having to dip into the piggy bank every so often. So much so that now there is nothing but change in that account. It's hard being a grown-up! My job is pushing for people to voluntarily retire or leave with s measly severance package but I am not taking it, I am in high hopes that I will not be one of those who get laid off in the end. As you guys are well aware of, I am the sole provider in my family and even if I don't get much , I am the one who gets the benefits. I can't afford to lose my job. If it were just me, I would suck it up and go work elsewhere but since there are babies involved I am forced to do what needs to be done.

Next fall/winter I should at least have finished my master's degree and at least I can apply for better jobs but who knows in this day in age?? It seems like every time I turn around more jobs are lost and more pay is cut and so on and so on. Do I really have a chance at a new job? Let's just hope I can keep the job I have now but in the meantime I guess looking doesn't hurt...???

Everything is so uncertain anymore. I don't know a solution and can only hope and pray you are kept in the job you've got till you have something better ... and also that you'll get something really GREAT when you finish school. Whatever happens, know that I'm always behind you, supporting you and rooting for you! xoxo
