I'll share a hug with you, mama.
I'm not in exactly the same boat, but I can relate. I have actually voluntarily dialed down my hours and commitment because I was super-hyper-overextended, but let's just say it's convenient for my employer, too. My situation's not permanent, and I'm flex to begin with, so no minimum income and no unemployment insurance. Just a sudden, drastic drop in income.
I asked for it, granted. I needed the reduction. But now I am looking at how we're going to move through the next several months (hello, heating season) without my income. I still have a kid in braces, will soon have another starting, and my income was covering those "extras" beyond the basics of living.
So I'm finding myself looking around for places I can cut spending.
What field are you in, and how are you gauging your prospects? I hope the time between jobs has some positive aspects for you. Hang in there, mama.
