The show must go on

So my husband still hasn't found a job since my last post, but he's still looking.  His mother has offered to pay him to do some yard work (she has several acres) so at least he'll get a little bit of money next week.

Also, I hate to admit this, but we're cashing in his 401K.  Thankfully he had it!  I don't have one at my job, so I'm very happy he had it.  I know cashing it in is a big no-no in the world of personal finance, but this is an emergency.

He also admitted to having opened a credit card without telling me.  He didn't think it was a big deal because the limit was only $1,000.  And he's right, it wasn't a big deal that he opened it when he was employed.  Now it kind of sucks.  Again, thankfully he had that 401K.

The only good thing about this whole fiasco is that he's let me take over all of the finances.  I've been a tight wad for the last couple of years :)

OH!  And because when it rains it pours, I started having tooth pain a couple of weeks ago.  On Friday it got to the point that it was throbbing so I called the dentist.  Of course the earliest I could be seen is next Tuesday.  The pain has subsided a bit, but it's still there every now and then.  This is on a tooth that already had a root canal.

Onto my weight....

It's been terrible.  I'm a stress eater!  And the cheapest foods out there are high carb and low nutritional value, which means I'm plumper than ever. I haven't actually weighed because then, you know, I'd have to face the music and WHO WANTS TO DO THAT?????

I guess I'll weigh in the morning.  Or maybe the next morning.


  1. I have cashed in at least part of my 401(k) in the past. Sometimes you just do what you have to do to get by. I am stress eater too, and things here have been rocky lately too, so I had a nice big gain. I really hope he finds a job soon.

  2. I wish you all the luck. All I can say ( to myself too as having some issues) this too shall pass!
