MM's job is no more. We got the call this morning.
On the plus side, we're not waiting to find out, and in case you hadn't heard, our house has sold.** No more mortgage payment = whew...no more worries about not being able to pay said mortgage payment.
On the minus side, well, what now? We found out that the house we were going to rent fell through, so that's out. We went and looked at some other places, and there's nothing out there I particularly want to live in.
Right now, at least, it looks like BW and I will be staying with M2 while I finish out the semester. Maybe. Hopefully. MM might be going to AZ to see if he can find work there. We just don't really know at this point.
Our dreams of having money to save just got blown all to hell, that much is for sure. MM's great paying job is gone. Our cheap rental place is gone. Our future just got even more uncertain, and it was already pretty uncertain to start with.
The only thing I can say with any certainty at all is this: it will all work out. It always does.***
*That's what I said when the other shoe dropped squarely on my head this morning.
**Have I mentioned this? I'm not sure that I have.... :)
***This has always been my mantra, and I've been saying it a whole lot more these last few months. That and ommmmmm.
