Usually it would just be me and the kids to enjoy this time. But this time around the O.M. is with us too. Its not a good thing he's here even if it like a vaca for him. it's hard. He isn't bringing in any money right now. this is the longest layoff we have ever experienced. in the month of February-the shortest month of the year-he has worked 7 days. It is the 23rd of February and my Old Man has worked SEVEN of these days. There will once again be a year of no saving, because the savings we would have put away-will be used to pay the bills O.M.'s (lack-there-of) paychecks didn't cover.
We'll be fine. It just stinks to keep trying to put yourself in a position of bettering yourself, and you cant ever catch that break to get started!!
The word around the proverbial cooler is that he will be going back again on Wednesday. but that doesn't guarantee he will finish out the week-or that he will even work at all next week either...day to day. Waiting and willing the weather to get nicer so the outdoor portions of the current site can be finished...or that bids finally go through on jobs they are hoping to get...fingers crossed here folks!!
