What is your family situation?
DH lost his job 7/2009. In 11/2009 we found our we were having a surprise baby. We lost our home, filed bankruptcy, and turned in our car. DH trained and got licensed for a new career but that industry has not recovered and he has been unable to find clients or a ‘regular‘ job outside of that industry. His unemployment has been exhausted and we have no income. I have been a SAHM since DS1 was born and I home school DS1 and DS2 but I have been looking for work as well.
