FI and I have been together for 6 yrs and througout these 6 yrs things have been HARD. We’ve struggled together and always make ends meet and always make sure the children have what they need. We have a house together as well. This year was the first year that we were completely caught up on every single bill/payment, all taxes and HOA fees, everything was paid and we even has actualy money saved in our savings account. Then, in January every week FI’s hours got cut just a little. Keep in mind, he used to work 55-61 hours a week and it was that overtime that was helping us. So, every week his hours got cut until everyone in the shop was down to 40 hours. Everyone was hurting, I know this, because their overtime is mainly where they make their money. This month and last we have really felt the strain. We are fresh out of savings and my good for nothing ex-husband has decided to stop paying his child support yet again.
Well, FI just called me a few minutes ago and I swear I have had this dream over and over again in the past month – he told me he got put on 11 hour days for this week and might even have to work on Friday again. He’s been working 4/10s so had Fridays off. I think it is onyl for this week bc he didn’t sound too overly excited (I guess because it does mean he has to work more) and I didn’t exactly scream and jump up and down like in my dreams. LOL
I’m just so glad even if it is for one week or even 2 would be wonderful! I am hoping the little bit extra will help us catch up and offset the extra expenses we’ve had in the past month.
I have no question or anything, I was just in shock I’d thought I’d share it with you guys. 🙂
