I have been putting this post off...since we are still in the process of getting things in our life figured out.
We found out on monday, June 22nd that Scott lost his job. Since he is the sole income in our family, you can imagine it was a stressful time. Since then we have been quite busy trying to figure out what we are going to do, how we will make this work and Scott has turned in over 40 job applications.
We have gotten the ball rolling on unemployment to help us through this stage. We also are working hard to get Medicaid in place so Josh won't suffer. Our insurance covered us until the 30th of June, and after that we are on our own. As you probably can guess..... Josh's medical expenses probably are around 2,000$ a month. So we NEED coverage! LOL! I have been reassured that Medicaid will kick in asap and we will be OK. That has been the biggest stress of all.
But through this I have had the chance to sit down and remember what is truly important in life. We will be OK, and life will go on. It might not be the way we thought it would go, but we will be OK. And since Scott was looking for the last year for a new job anyway, it probably is a blessing in disguise. I can see us looking back a year from now and realizing it was for the better.
So until then.... we are having lot's of family time and surviving the summer. If you hear of anyone hiring or know of any job openings, please pass them along. Thanks!
