Hi. It’s been awhile since I said much.
We’re not in as much trouble as some, but I don’t know where we’ll be in the next few months. Right now we have a good amount of cc debt, but we can make the minimum payments and a little extra. I’m mainly focused on putting money away in the bank. The reason is, my husband is getting out of the Navy February 29th. We have enough saved up for one month’s worth of bills. (I know it’s not a lot) We’re looking forward to a nice tax return to help as well. Between that and unemployment, we can probably last for 2-3 months.
We didn’t really plan on him getting out so soon, it just happened that way. I mean we though he couldn’t get out until October but he was told in December that he has a chance to get out in February. His option if he doesn’t get out in February? To extend until the end of the next deployment. (December) or extend until 2019. He’s already been in 9 1/2 years and been on 4 deployments, one of which ended up being 9 months instead of the usual 6. We have 3 young kids and feel like he needs to get out before they’re all grown up. He’s missed out on SO much.
We’re hoping he can get a good federal or government job and he will join the Navy Reserves. I may have to get a part time job. We have a house and that’s our main concern. I don’t know if I’m looking for advice, I just wanted to share our current story.
Thanks for listening!
