Today, I was aware that it was April Fool's Day from the time that I woke up, until my husband arrived home from work. I had heard about some terrible virus that might hit the internet, so I stayed off of MiceChat until this evening.
Anyway, I had told myself earlier, that I wouldn't believe any news that my husband arrived home with. I figured he would pull an April Fool's prank on me. The other day, he told me that 5 people at work lost their jobs.
Well he walks in the door, and tells me that they cut his hours. I asked, is this an April Fool's Joke? No, he replies. Bottom line, he has lost 10% of his salary. He figures he will be taking one day off of work every other week. No reason to drive all the way to work if he isn't getting paid for it.
Now, I am thankful that my husband has a job. He makes pretty good money. I will have to redo my budget. Cut back on unnecessary purchases. There will be less money for vacations.
I am just glad he didn't lose his job.
No, it wasn't an April Fool's joke. I wish that it was.
