Aww, I'm sorry! We're going through that right now, dh was laid off 2 weeks ago and we were NOT prepared for it. We've moved into a less-expensive house and have cut back on pretty much all of our bills. In fact, that's what made me decide to cd (so if you can look on the bright side, there it is!). My dh drove a truck for a while but he drove for companies that had him gone for weeks at a time. He liked the solitude. But, there are a lot of places where a driver can make local deliveries and be home every night. And, it pays pretty well if you handle your money right!
It seems like to me, you really have your plan, but it's such a shock when you first find out. Start making changes now, the sooner, the better. Good luck!
