I have good news since my last post.
1.DH likes his new job
2.Even though the hourly rate is lower than what he made at his last job, he gets anywhere from 4-12 hours of overtime weekly, so he will be bringing home almost the same amount of $.
3. He went almost 2 full weeks without a paycheck and I only had to take $60 out of our savings to cover October's expenses.
Not trying to toot my own horn, but October wasn't such a bad month, after all!
