Of course it would happen that as soon as we get gazelle intense about eliminating our debt that something would happen to shake that up…that’s how life works, though, right? My husband is a plumber and primarily works in new construction so there isn’t much work during the winter. Usually he’s off from January to early March. Being as it’s already March and he worked straight through the winter we thought that we dodged the bullet this year. WRONG! He was laid off last week and it could be anywhere from a few weeks to a few months until there are new projects. While we are more than able to cover our expenses with his unemployment compensation, those payments don’t start for 3 weeks so we are on a spending freeze right now as we want to pull as little from savings as possible. While it kind of stinks to not be able to pay off any debt, we are absolutely having a blast with him home!
