Several weeks ago when I decided I wanted to start writing this blog, i decided to start roughly six months out, and continue six months after, engaging in a one-year exploration. While I fully understand the difference between calendar months, strictly-four-week-months, and 28 day cycles, for the purposes of this blog, I decided to use your run-of-the-mill Gregorian Calendar months. That’s why I chose December 6th as my starting date.
Apparently that wasn’t the only significance of this date. Today at around 11:30am I found out that as of February 1st, I will be going from full-time to part-time at my job. This is slightly on the really really scary side of things because going from 40 hours to 20 hours not only means a drastic pay cut, but with it, there goes my family’s health insurance. Um, with mountains of debt and a baby on the way, this isn’t exactly my idea of a good time. We’re a bit freaked out right now. I know in the end, everything will be okay and we’re not going to have to check into the Poor House, but right now, it feels like a giant punch in the gut.
