I have nightmares about payday. I have them because my husband is paid on commission...100% commission. So, we never know what the amount will be until it hits the bank. So the night before that happens I usually have bad dreams that it won't be enough to pay the bills, because it has happened several times. Last night I had a dream that he got paid $8.00 and of course I was in anguish as to what to do to come up w/ enough money to keep us all fed and the lights on. It was more than $8.00 thank God, but not enough to pay everything completely, it'll do for now, it has to.
I do work, but it's a part time job, the pay is good, the hours are phenomenal for a family w/ four busy kids, but it sure wouldn't support us. Just a nice added bit for padding. I love it, it's a great job, w/ great coworkers but it would be nice if it was a little more. At least it's something, in a state where jobs are scarce I'm thankful I found something.
Always teetering on the edge of poverty...
