I know what you mean, having been chronically underemployed myself.

My husband just returned to work last week after 9 months of disability. I told him he was a slacker since I could have made a baby in 9 months while he has nothing to show for himself. :) Although there is that part about him still being ALIVE. That is no small feat. Anyway, so what does he do his first day back to work? He takes a bereavement day (his mother died). More teasing ensued. Actually, I took it easy on him. He is still very weak, and he just lost his grandmother in March and now his mom. The past 9 months have been a little hard on him.

So it is going to start feeling like Christmas around here once his paychecks start rolling in again. We have been living on 40% of his former income and now we are going back to 100%. I guess you could say this has been a rags to riches, to rags, to riches.....story.

I have been having a hard time landing a job too. I stopped trying about a month ago when his mom got real bad and needed a lot of care. Now I am waiting until after Quilt Fest '08. But it is hard out there!

I've NEVER EVER had such a hard time finding a full time job in my life!!! I told the dogs they had to get paper routes, cats have to at least press the laundry and chickens are in charge of mowing the yard. Glad to hear you kids are back on the road to Fat City!!
Sorry to hear about your hubby's Mom and Grandma though...
Looking forward to pics of Quiltfest 08!!!!
