I've been there, too. Hang in there, TexasGirl. It's scary and nervewracking to find yourself out of work, but it genuinely can be an opportunity to change your life. With a bit of perseverance and a little luck you'll be back to work before long.

Thanks Rob! It is scary. I didn't like my job, to be honest. I liked the drawings on the computer though, but the rest of it got boring. I was wanting to quit anyway, but, not until something else came along. It's hard being in limbo.

You'll find something else and much better too. $9.50 an hour is nothing, can't live on that anyway. With G-d's help you'll find something that pays a lot more. Good luck.

How's it going, Texas? I was just thinking about you the other day and thought I'd ask.

They are suppose to call me today about the graphics job. If they don't, or i don't get the job, there is a lowly position at the municipal court not far from me.
