Not having to pay quarterly taxes or a tax shortage in the month of April was a blessing. We were able to put new brakes on my husbands car, new tires on our beater car, and take a little weekend trip to our favorite spot in Pennsylvania. While there we finally got the Adirondack chairs at an excellent price that we have been shopping for for two years.
We knew there were problems with my husband's company. They lost their contract in the states of Connecticut and Massachusetts. My husband was given two weeks notice so we have one more pay check. Plus a weeks worth of vacation. No other severance pay. He can file for unemployment.
This adds to my personal stress, as I know my studio is losing one teacher Midsummer. The way that my mind works… I've added a full load of group classes for the summer months. This doesn't mean that they will fill, but it's my way of knowing that I've done everything that I can.
I already work quite a bit as most of you know. I'm sure we will be OK as long as he can find something before his unemployment runs out.
It doesn't help that grandpa P keeps bringing it up. So be patient with me blogger friends, I will try to stay positive and not let it stress me too much. It's in Gods hands.
