I've lived in my new city for 1 year and 10 months now. I moved out here for school and to be closer to Gameboy. As of two weeks ago, for the first time since I moved out here, both of us have long term full time jobs. Which is beyond exciting.
As a household we've had two layoffs, a ton of temp jobs, and scrambled to fill in the rest. Luckily we've been able to make everything work, but it is such a relief to know our salaries (at least our bases) and be able to plan from there. We're working on a new budget system based on the new income that I'll be talking about a little later.
