It has been six days since I last left home for work. Yes, I am officially unemployed now. Ah, I waited quite a while for this. Now, I have plenty of time at home with my husband and the girls. I often feel guilty before because everything that a mom and a wife should be doing for the kids and spouse were done by others on my behalf. Being at home too has given me lots of time to catch up with my friends. You see, I really had a hard time balancing family life, work, and personal life. But not anymore.
Recently, I met with a few friends over coffee and I really had a great time even if we still had lots of things to talk about. Yes, lots and lots of things to discuss because we only see one another almost once in a blue moon. The greatest take away a have from that chat is about finances. Now that I am unemployed, I am doing my best to control my expenses. But there are times when one will have a need for money and there is nothing. I am glad to learn that there are various short term loans nowadays. That there are companies who offer title loans (like loan secured car title) and the approval is really fast.
I cannot predict the future and as much as I want to be debt-free, only time can tell. I will manage my finances well but if time comes I will be in need, I will turn to my friends and ask them more about these secured loans. Now, isn’t that a very informative catching up time?
