My fiance hurt himself at work yesterday and the doctor told him he has to stay out of work for at least two weeks. He's a contractor and, when tearing apart a deck, he got shot in the eye with a nail. Luckily, it just bruised his eye rather thand looking like something out of a horror movie. Unfortunately, his insurance doesn't cover this injury unless he's out of work for at least 30 days. Needless to say, I have to further add to our income to make up for his lost wages. I'm trying not to panic because I know I can do this ... I just need to figure out how to add more hours to the day!! LOL Do you need to further add to your income?

My husband just found out that the grocery store he works for is closing within the year. He actually already has another job lined up , but it is 3 dollars less and hour and only 40 hours a week, he works 48 now, and no overtime which he gets every week. We will have to tighten our budget. I do find that when times like this come up, it is best not to waist your energy stressing about it. Just cut back all you can and things will all come together for you.
