Yesterday afternoon Adam told me that he found out his work hours have been cut to 32 hrs/wk which means he'll only be working Monday - Thursday. About a month or so ago he was cut from 50hrs to 40hrs which wasn't bad. It was really nice to have 10hrs of overtime pay each week but our bills are based on the 40hrs so no problem. We knew we wouldn't be able to eat out as much or run around doing things on the weekend as much. Now he's been cut to 32hrs and I'm trying very hard to stay positive. The company he works for filed Chapter 11 earlier in the year so we've been so lucky that there haven't been any layoffs. The loss of overtime was bearable.
God has never given us more than we can handle. When we first moved out on our own we didn't make near the money we do now and somehow it all worked out so I know that we are going to be ok but it's hard not to see all the bad.
I'm trying to see all the positive:
He'll be home on Fridays and have a 3 day weekend which will mean that he will be in a better, not over worked, mood. He can do more around the house or outside like he wants to (that doesn't require funds for building or redoing something anyway). I know there's more but that's the two I have for now.
Other than this news life is great. I mean really great. I'm so thankful for the life I have and the relationship Adam & I have. It's really awesome. I'm not really sure how I'm one of the lucky one's that found my other half so early in life.
Sorry I've been very sentimental lately... I can't help it. Well back to work for me. Today has been incredibly busy with claims and people needing complicated things!
Have a great Thursday!!
(Edit: Adam just message me to say he's working tomorrow! YAAAAA Thank you God!)
