So to recap the last few weeks, I quit/retired 3 weeks ahead of schedule and we took a hit of about $1000. I had hub ‘ s support and I felt like I was leaving on God’s time as well. Hub ‘ s work wasn’t panning out with extra shifts or advancement opportunities so I casually started looking around for extra work. I mean here we are with one car, what are the chances that I would find something that fit our needs and.my stress level? I sent off one resume on indeed, prayed about it, and got a reply almost immediately. I can’t make this up.
The job is one day a week, extremely low stress, fits in with our transportation limitations and will be just enough to cover our current budget needs. Whoa. God provides.
Hubs is in the process of applying for a better paying position. He has a preemployement physical coming up next week. Hubs had a regular doc appointment and found out that his cholesterol was extremely high. He’s taking it seriously and we’re adjusting our diet accordingly. We’re saying goodbye to powdered hazelnut creamer and hello to salads and salmon.
His flex card wasn’t working so we paid about $100 out of pocket for his medicine. He’s also missing 2 days of work to apply for this new position, another $200 loss. So how are we adjusting to this immediate shortfall? Not bad actually, not bad at all. God provides.
2 bills were put off for 30 days. Our electric bill was the lowest January bill we had ever had. The freezer and cabinets are relatively full. And by being frugal and good stewards, we have enough money to cover the basics. 🙂
