It looks like hubby is losing his job today--he's 99.9% certain that's what the meeting is about because of the way it's been called. *No severance pay.* No cushion.
I'll get back to comments when sentences make sense to me. There's also a lot to do. I need to make lists. That gives me a sense of control and can give us some measures that will help.
UPDATE: His whole department is being laid off (so much for "vital function"). His job will continue through sometime the first week in April, and we will have an additional paycheck because of several weeks of unused vacation time. We have insurance through the end of April (can schedule checkups for kids and hubby) and it's rumored that the government will pick up 2/3 of COBRA costs after April 1. So 5 weeks of money, which will stretch by futher cutting expenses, then it takes 6-8 weeks to get unemployment in our state because of administrative delays/backlog.
As I go through each room of the house, I find myself estimating the resale price of a lot. Still, that's just another paycheck or so, but it can help toward that gap. At least that's a few more weeks of job hunting while he still has a job.
