I'm stressed to the max!
This past weekend has been full of drama and I feel burnt out. My FH got laid off becuase the company he worked for closed. Thankfully he made a few phone calls and got another job already which is great ( a friend of his hired him that same day) but he has to start out at the bottom there and the pay is not really that great at all when you start. And then my future in-laws asked us for money again. I know that they are having a very tough time right now but we are too. They need money to pay their taxes. They have this problem every year. They never put money aside each month to cover them and then they are due and they can't pay them. They have also been having car troubles and we just paid to get their car fixed. We have also been helping them to cover their monthly bills for the past six months. Our savings is down to about nothing and with FH's smaller paychecks now I doubt that we will be able to build up our savings again anytime soon. We are also still trying to replace things that we lost in Hurricane Sandy and save money to move this year.
I was going to order my dress for the wedding this week but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I feel like the wedding is not a priority right now and any money spent on it would be better saved or put to use elsewhere. My FH wants to move the wedding to next year so that we can just concentrate on the mountain of issues in front of us right now and get ourselves back on the right track. And that would also give it some time for him to get some promotions at work. I feel like it's the right thing to do right now too but I am still bummed about it a little.
