Hi all, I've been away for awhile. We've had quite an uproar at our house. Our son has been out of work for a year and a half, and now his wife is being medically discharged from the AirForce. They have nowhere to go but "home" (there goes my revolving/swinging door again, LOL). Since they didn't know when the final date would be they decided to have the girls move here early (6 & 8) so they don't have to change schools with only 6 or so weeks to go. So, we're temporarily "parents" again to youngsters and it's just crazy busy around here (I now know why children are given to the young and am beginning to realize how old I'm getting, LOL). I've still managed to get in a little bit of claying (they like to clay with me, of course, but then it always turns into me helping them and not getting anything of my own accomplished, LOL).
So, I just wanted to check in and touch bases. I love all I see everybody doing. I'm working on my own line of dragons and the first is now in the store, along with some of my canes.
We sure could use some positive thoughts or prayers that Nick gets a job soon. He is a disabled vet and has worked so hard to get his degree in Software Engineering (Programming). Nick has ADHD and for him to have gotten his Bachelors Degree is such a wonderful accomplishment, but he expected it to help him find employment. I don't know how to help, other than to "just be here". He graduated in October and has been trying to find a job for the past year and a half with no luck (he doesn't have enough experience. . . where does he get the experience if nobody will hire him? For the past 4 months he's been "working" a volunteer/non paid job just for experience, but if neither of them is employed, he can't afford to stay in SC and keep commuting to this non-paid job.) He's getting extremely discouraged and depressed and now with his wife losing her job, they just don't know what to do or where to turn. They'll have a home and food as long as we're here, but really want to be "out on their own". He does have 2 interviews in the area as soon as they get moved back here (March 10) and one sounds very promising (he's had an initial phone interview) and is in our hometown (30 miles from where we live now, but a place he's very comfortable with), so if you could spare some good vibes, positive thoughts, and/or prayers, it would be very much appreciated.
Thanks and hugs to all.
