I am so, so happy to report - after a stressful recent post, and a stressful month for that matter - that I have good financial news!
As of July 1st, Mike's pay is going to be restored almost to normal!! After weeks of waiting and wondering what the verdict was going to be, he found out on Friday that they are going to be going from 2 furlough days/month, to just 6 days ammortized over the next year. Which means... just a half a day a month, and a quarter of a day per pay period. If he couldn't get his entire salary back, this was the next best thing.
As I said in my last few posts, the past couple of months have been difficult. We've dug ourselves a depressing little hole, but we now have the resources we need to once again begin climbing our way out. It's going to take a couple of paychecks to gather our bearings, reclaim our equilibrium, and get back on track, but I have faith that we can do it.
Onward and upward into the summer we go.
