J-5 Rogers Family

Financial Crisis

If you think our economy is suffering, you should visit the Rogers household...

Long story very short, I have recently lost a significant amount of money.
Last week was my last week of one of my two part-time jobs.

This means ONE THOUSAND dollars less per month for our household. Yes, that "taxi cab" gig paid me really well!

Jeremy and I are in the midst of a Dave Ramsey overhaul, and we are both committed to me not returning to work. (At one point, we thought that was the only option.)

Jeremy's monthly bonus has also seen better months than the last few, but enough about that.

So for a few days, my fingers must rest so that we can figure out how we are going to "survive."

...and just to mess with your heads, stay tuned for some awesome blogs about Mother's Day, pig dreams, pictures, ironing, bets, medicinal comas, and diapers.
I've got my post-it loaded up with future posts.

Please give me a few days (a week maybe?) to get my brain relaxed enough to make you laugh again.
(Really, this is just a hoax and I need to figure out how I can work money for hair bows into my already negative budget.)

Back to reality, this is really real, no hoax...

Thanks,
The Lady on Brokeback Round Rock Road

You'll get it figured out! I know that's a lot to make up in lost income, but once it's all in black and white, you'll see a lot of ways you can cut back.

We're doing the Dave Ramsey thing. I still will never be able to quit my job (we need somewhere to live while we're following the DR way!). We're looking for ways to cut back too. So far we're sticking Really Closely to our budget as measly as it is. Oh well...take care and remember I don't read this blog just to laugh. I read it to stay in touch and offer any support that I can. Hugs to you.
