I suspect that when she said a Vet hospital that she likely meant the kind for animals, not veterans - but I could be wrong (and it wouldn't be the first time...). I also think the suggestion to supplement the lesser income with a part-time job at the florist sounds like a good idea.

Sounds like a good offer/change to me. I appreciate the OP's wanting to contribute fully to the household income, but getting health benefits way trumps a few bucks. One broken ankle, one bit of bad news, and the costs will ruin the family finances.
Best wishes.

I agree. Plus you really should try to stay partially employed at the flower shop if for no other reason than you hate the new job. I have always been a big believer in having something to fall back on-especially in this day and age.
