I feel like such a failure. I got told at 8 AM that my pay would get cut at work so they could avoid layoffs, and more to the point, I haven't "May the fourth be with you"'d anyone all day...

@ischade I think we'll be okay. We are truly lucky that we're in the financial situation we're in. The only reason the entire thing makes me unhappy is that I had to cut down investment into my Roth IRA (tertiary to my 401(k) accounts) and also into my discretionary investment account. Hopefully the cuts are just temporary. Thanks for asking though!

@russsaidwords relieved to hear it. yes, hopefully the cuts are just temporary!

@russsaidwords That really sucks about the paycut though. I don't know why you feel like a failure, it's absolutely not your fault.
