      We have discussed this very thing. I think it will end up being the way we go. He will have to work a second job.

      He is upset that he will do nothing more than sleep and work, but I really don’t see another path at the moment. Unless someone some money they want to give us. Herlean

      He worked the second job for about a 14 months and every penny from that second job went to debt reduction. I took care of everything else around the house. It was hard because all he did was work and sleep.

      But it was worth it
      to get the debt paid! Also, when your husband gets laid off, can he apply for unemployment benefits? The last thing is that, at the beginning when we were struggling, we sold some of our stuff to pay bills.

      It’s a drastic step, but for us, it was one we had to take. A girlfriend of mine just had to sell her couch and dining set to pay rent. She just got another job and she is proud that she is doing well, now.

      Even though she sits on the floor to eat dinner! The fact that you struggle through and manage is a credit to you. You should be proud of the fact that you are able to do it, even though it is hard.
      Good luck.

      Ideas? Thanks! Herlean
