  • Congratulations! I am only working 3 hrs a day for a whopping total of 15 hrs per week! Not much above minimum wage either. So, I'd say we are financially having tough times. I've been looking for that 40 hr per week job, but so far it has eluded me. I had 2 other part time jobs, but one was ended before Christmas and the other has fizzled out, so I need to find more hours somewhere!

  • I am so happy for you and your boyfriend! I hope they keep him there and never let him go again.

    We are on hard times right now. I need to find a part time job to help carry the weight of the bills, but jobs are very scarce in our area. In fact, many businesses are closing down due to the economy. I saw that Circuit City has a "Going Out Of Business" sign across their building and that's pretty scary when a large business closes down around here. I'm sure it's not a corporate close-down, just this one store.

    I wish everyone well.
