A request..

Hey there, everyone,

As you all may know, I've been out of work for quite a while. As a matter of fact, this Sunday will mark one year since I lost my last job. Today, I was doing what I normally do: after taking care of the kids, doing some housework, and loving on the baby, I browse the local job listings. Well, let me tell you: it had been slim pickin' for a long while. Ideally, I'd like a job where I could get off around 2PM so I only had to pay for daycare for one child, instead of Xay going to afterschool care as well as Corwin being in all day long. It really kills me to be away from my kids, especially now that I've had this long stretch being with them constantly. However, our situation is becoming desperate, and I know that even if my husband doesn't think that I'm aware. :)

Most of the jobs available that I've seen have been swing shift type jobs that would make things very difficult for my family. However, with nothing else offered, I've been applying for anything and everything. Today, thought, I was cruising carrerbuilder.com and one job just popped out at me. My first thought was: I'd be perfect for that job! So, I instantly whipped up a nice cover letter and applied.

Now, to my request: I wholeheartedly believe in the power of positive thinking. In the vein, I'm asking that anyone who reads this, please keep me and my family in your thoughts. Send me prayers, wishes, good vibes, whatever you believe in so that I find a job that's really good for my family. I've got my fingers crossed. :)

Thank you!

BB!

Hey have you ever thought about doing the online customer service stuff I used to do? Check out www.west.com, or www.arise.com. Amanda works for arise and could give you some pointers for applying. It's great as far as hours cause you pick your own schedule.
