Here is an update about our struggles with unemployment.  This round has not been pretty.  I felt that I had to write and let you know, I’m still here.  I miss posting deals for you, and I promise that I will return.  It is just unknown as to how soon.

Last month, I pecked away at the matchups. I was nearly done when I realized it was the last week in February! It never came to fruition, because each day I’d wake up and have to tackle another item on the list for our financial survival.  Something always needed constant attention, follow-through, or follow-up.

Dealing with this, plus working 6 days a week to try to keep us afloat, I feel like a marathoner with no more drive. Though dropping out of the race is not an option. Plenty of times I felt I was at my breaking point. Then, something good would happen to give me hope and renewed determination.

This road is long, and seems as though there isn’t an end in sight.  Yet, I know that’s not true.  I just have to persevere and patiently suffer through this. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.

Thank you, for your emails of care and concern. It is wonderful to hear from you. If I am able, I’ll be sure to respond back in kind.

May you be richly blessed and deeply loved.

I remain, gratefully yours,

  1. Sorry to hear about your struggles. I remember when my husband was laid off last year for the first time ever it was scary and unemployment was barley anything for our family of 6 but all things happen for a reason and he found a better company and higher pay a month later it all worked out so keep your chin up things WILL change. I have missed your match ups and have been checking the site once

  2. I have never commented, but visit often. I feel the need to say, that I know what its like, and its not pretty or easy. This will pass though. Take all the time you need, and always trust that God will provide. Sending lots of blessings your way.

  3. I understand what you are going through right now. Just always remember that everything happens for a reason, and something better opportunities might be in store for your husband and for your family.

  4. I just stumbled upon your site today while searching for a coupon, and felt the need to write back to make you feel better… my husband was laid off from his job in May of 2010 when our first son was 18months old and I was pregnant with my second son… he did not find a job until December 2012. It was a very very scary and stressful 2.5 years for all of us. At times I thought we would never be

  5. I always check out your blog and love it!!! I came back today to see if there was an update and since nothing is new I just wanted to say that today I said a prayer for you and your family!!! all the work you've done here sure blessed my family and I am sure many others. Thank you! and hang in there!!!

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this trying time for you and your family. You have certainly helped me out with all your match-ups and hope to see you back soon when things ease up for you!!

  7. Melanie,<br /><br />I have been praying for you and your family. Once you are ready, maybe you could make money by charging a small fee for the BJ&#39;s Matchups? Just until things get more stable for you and your family? I would be willing to help in this way and others may as well.
