Okay, just when I thought everything was going good after the "rabbi is leaving and I'm not going to get to finish my conversion" Yom Kippur scare, yesterday my boss said she's going to have to let me go because she can't make payroll anymore. I hope that I can work all of next week so I can get enough money to pay the mortgage next month.

My husband doesn't have any work and is having to give up his business, so we're looking at living on nothing but a single unemployment check. My check now really doesn't cover all our needs, which is why our savings account has slowly been draining dry. I think we have $500-$700 left. So there's no cushion left. If at least one of us doesn't get a job making $11/hour or better by the first of the year, we'll have to start missing the mortgage payments.

We're not going to be homeless, because I do have family members we can live with, and we're not going to go hungry. But that's about all we're going to have.

Oy. It's worth being a Jew just to be able to sum up life in that single word. Oy.

Oh, Mychal, I'm sorry. What kind of business did your husband own?

He was a locksmith.

I believe you mentioned before the prospect of moving? Is that still a consideration?

We're looking at several possible areas--some more preferred than others.

But I found out that the paralegal at another law office in town just turned in her notice today, so I took over a resume. It's a two attorney firm and I know one of them--he comes to visit us sometimes because he and my attorney are friendly--and I know the other one to talk to her on the phone about cases (she's still relatively new). The secretary there was going to put in a word for me, plus my attorney will recommend me. So hopefully I can get that job. The paralegal is leaving the middle of next week, so I might could start as soon as then and not miss more than a few days of work (and if they want me there to train under her, maybe not even those days).

I've got all my fingers and toes crossed on that one. I'd not be a block and a half from where I am now. And I could do some freelancing for my current attorney after hours for some extra cash.
