Today I was sitting at home while Sophie napped checking my email and hear a knock on the door. Today is Erics day off. He answers the door and its a certified letter. He will be unemployed starting Oct 1. I am so very thankful that I don't have to worry about buying diapers. Cloth hasnt saved us a dime so far..me and my diaper buying<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Now I have the chance to stop buying and to allow it to save us money. When we did use sposies we spent 40 bucks a week on pampers and wipes. I am going back to work and Eric will stay home with Sophie. We are both going to go back to school next fall so I guess we'll be ok. I just need to get out of the spending mind set.<br>
P.S. My apologies if Ive been a lil short lately. Ive just tried not to post at all but I couldnt stay away. Just stressed out..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie">

Oh, I'm so sorry, but sounds like you guys will be just fine! And remember if you need some cash you can always sell some dipes.

Girl I hear you! We are both unemployeed- but starting a company- but it is going very very slow. I understrand you worries and stress- you can always drop me an email if you need to talk. Last night I was up all night worring about money then I was crabby all day because I got no sleep! and we have not jobs here, not to mention that the collage just started again and any jobs that were open are now GONE.. Sigh....<br><br>
I do love cloth- and I would cloth no matter how rich I was, but just to know I dont have to spend $200 a month on diapers- what a weight of my shoulders!

I wanted to thank you guys for your warm wishes and comiseration. I know Im not alone and that does help in a twisted way.<br>
We have decided to move to Columbus. I have all of my family there and there are more job openings. We are going to be staying at my parents house and work and save up for a down payment on a house. I will still have my computer and internet access so I'll still be a part of MDC. Knowing that you guys are *coming along* does help.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Meghan and Sophie
