I am in the exact same situation. I could have written this myself. I am recently divorced, underemployed and wondering how I'm going to make this work. I feel like I've had the rug pulled out from under me. This time last year, we were vacationing at Disney World.

Great performance!
Was my first time, and I intend to keep going back every year.
Put me and my family in the Christmas spirit.
