It has been about 7 1/2 months since my last post. In that time, our finances have taken a turn for the worse. That dividend investing plan is gone and our emergency money is dwindling. In other words, we are in panic mode. My wife and I are trying to be barebones on shopping and it is not easy. We are reassessing our budget and trying to get more income.
I am constantly looking for a new job that will not only provide for us financially, but also put me in a happier mood. My current job is in turmoil with team changes and load increases. Unfortunately this does not translate into more pay. Ideally, I would find a position that would let my wife continue to stay at home as much as possible. She does fill in as a substitute teacher now and then, but I would like to be able to use that money to save for our depleted emergency fund.
That is all for now, but I will look to update the blog more often, I promise.
