Well, the economy has gotten to us

I know that the last 8 years we've been blessed, and I have a testimony that it's because we've been paying a full tithing that my husband's job has not taken a very hard hit since 9/11. I know that the business has been blessed for our benefit.

But I guess God has something in the plans for us now. Just as soon as my husband finished up his associates in accounting and is 5 classes away from his bachelors, his boss has started laying off people. My husband didn't get hit in the first wave, and his boss said he'd "take care of him", but he wants his hours cut back to 30 hours (3 nights) a week. Ouch! We've been living the last few years off of 50 hour weeks and barely making it.

Dh is putting out applications now in his new field, so I hope he finds at least something part time to supplement what he's losing at the other job. Or perhaps I might have to take a part time job while he picks up a third class and finishes up sooner than later.

Oh Jen that is a major bummer! My bil just got laid off last week too. Keep your head up though I am sure you guys will be able to figure everything out!

Best of luck with everything!
