My Christmas Wish Came True Already!!!
 
At the end of June, I was let go from my Tax preparer position. I was DEVASTATED. My husband is an electrician apprentice, so he doesn't make a lot of money since he is still going to school. I was the "bread winner" and I was SOO worried that unemployment wasn't going to cover our bills and we would lose our house that we have only had for a year.

Luckily, I am a good saver/deal finder/budgeter and my H and I have made it work. As Christmas approaches, I have been so sad since I figured that Christmas presents were going to be small and minimal.... I HATE not working and I have been SOOO depressed.

Today, I got a phone call and I have been offered a position as a Communications Specialist for a nonprofit. I am SUPER excited. I am so silly, after I got off the phone, I thought to myself how I can now afford to partake in the card and ornament exchange. YAY!!!
