I am so upset!

I am so upset right now.  So is my hubby.  He started a new job a few weeks before my surgery in Feb.  From day one they overpaid him.  He went to his trainer and his supervisor and asked if it was correct.  They both assured him that his check was correct.  He has been paid the same way since day one.  Today, he was able to pull up the check online (he gets paid Fri) and see what he will be paid.  It is about $300 less than what he has been paid every pay period.  So I find the discrepancy and we called HR to talk to payroll.  The woman started to freak out, told me that he had been grossly overpaid and we would have to pay it back, but "dont worry, we will set you up on a payment schedule."  WHAT?!?!?!  We told her that this was not our mistake and that we shouldnt have to pay it back.  She said, "Well, if you were underpaid you would expect us to pay."  We can barely afford rent and bills as it is (I am a stay at home mom).  If we have to pay back over $3000 (in payments) we wont be able to afford rent and other bills. 

My hubby has an appointment with his supervisor to see what can be done, but it looks like we are going to have to pay.  :( 

On a banded note, I tried to eat a chicken breast last night and it hurt!  I dont know if I am taking bites that are too big, or if I am eating too fast.  Suggestions would be great here!!  How do I know if it is just restriction, or what?  Ok, I'm off to figure out what to do about our crazy situation.  Have a good day everyone.


  1. Wow, I would be upset about the pay problem too! How scary! My husband and I are in the same boat as far as financial tightness/impossibleness due to me staying home, but we feel that God called me to do that.

    Recently I've been meditating on Matthew 6:8
    "Your Father knows what you need before you ask him."
    And it's true! He's sovereign, over the big stuff and the little stuff.


  2. Becky, you are so right! God is in control. We have to remember that, and it's so hard when you have someone telling you that you need to repay them over $3000 for their mistake. Like you, we feel that God has called me to stay at home with our son. I do go to school also, but I am home when he is home from school. There is going to come a time when I will have to work, but while our son is young, we want me here with him. Great bible verse you posted! I read it to my hubby last night and he said, "You go girl. You preach it and I will turn the pages." lol He went to Bible college and his mother was a professional Christian singer, so he grew up in church. He has also been to Seminary, but decided to pursue other interest. Thank you for your encouragement. Keep our situation in prayers please.
