Welcome to the Ride Called Life

January was "No-Spend Month" which then turned February into "No Job Month" with Justin getting laid off and having to file for unemployment for the first time ever. He works in the construction industry doing remodels and he builds park structures every once in awhile too. He loves it! But, as you know the housing market is tanking in so many ways and this just happens to be one of them.

I have loved having Justin home, so have the kids. It really is nice. He thinks it's swell that we like him that much. :)

He gets to see what we do everyday and he has even helped us in some areas!

Anyway...we are simplifying, we are doing more together and attempting to be more creative. We are paying down our credit cards as much as we can. We are trying to do what we set out to do this year inspite of the lack of funds.

Where will we be in 6 months? I have no clue, but the ride will be wild.
