A quick update around here… Poe has been on 4 interviews in the past week – all in relation to security and his guard card and firearms permit. To put that in perspective: He had 4 interviews prior to this in the entire year and a half he’s been out of work ranging from landscaping to pizza delivery to his educational career (architectural drafting.) Perhaps this career shift was a smart move on our part? We shall see. His interview yesterday he really really wants. It’s for a major museum, and he said the employee atmosphere was “like family – like WB used to be.” We shall see. Please keep us in your prayers, as I think his unemployment ends pretty soon. Like in the next two weeks. But we’re trying our best and I guess that’s truly all we can do. Do our best and give it up in prayer.
The boys are okay. Driving us crazy being out of school. Annoying each other has been their pastime. We’re going camping again in a couple weeks. That’ll be a good distraction for them.
I’m having a terrible time getting motivated to do anything. I was sick for a couple of days, and coupled with the major heat, it just has drained me. I’m trying to get back in the swing of my routine, but it’s been rather difficult to do. Everyone else has that “summer vacation” attitude and it’s making it difficult for me to be in work mode. But I’m trying. My supplemental income is keeping us in food.
Anyway… I’ve been writing for one of my clients at the Fun and Function blog. I write under “MicheleW” so those posts are mine if you’re interested.
I’ve also written a post over at Butterviews for BlogHer… What caregiving is to me. There’s a chance for a cruise at BlogHer’s roundup page – so you might want to check it out! The post is Full Plates and Everything Else.
