Jobs for all

Well, today I was able to fill in for the same company that I work for at my second job, but at a different location than usual, only 4 miles away from home. That was a real treat, and I really really wish I could find some work that's closer to home. My main full-time job involves a 90 mile one-way commute, and after doing that for nearly 8 years, it's getting really really old. So my second job, which usually only involves a 30 mile one-way commute, seems so close to home!! But working at someplace just 4 miles away from home, now that's heaven!!!! I wouldn't even need a car, if I could find a job that paid the bills!!! But that's not likely, as it's a small rural town and there are very few jobs of any kind available, especially the kind that pays the bills! But it's still fun to think about, and I do apply for everything that even remotely seems like something I could do, but from what I understand, most of the time you've got to "know someone" to get in around home. Darn.

On a brighter job front, tomorrow DH is meeting with a lady who works for an agency that places mentally ill people in jobs. So he is hopeful that soon he will have a job, and that would be nice too. But then I think about the creditors and how they can garnish your wages or seize your bank account (not that he has one any more), and all the money worries start up again. I sure wish he could get that bankruptcy back on the road. ...I hope that if he starts working again, that maybe he'll be able to contribute to the family again, that would make me feel so much better, and I'm sure he would feel more manly too. But with his last job, he wasn't doing that, he was just spending his entire check(s) on fun stuff, not even paying HIS bills, let alone anything that I was responsible for, so I'm not holding out a lot of hope, but a little, anyhow....
