  • DD is 22 y/o, is working full-time, doesn't really like the job, thinking about going back to school. DS is 18 y/o, in college, now. Times are tough, education is the key.

  • admckenzie, LOL hahahahahahah about the 19 year old...hmmm my daughter seems to be the same. I have been getting so angry about it, but if I had only known she is simply "forgetting", maybe I wouldn't be so mad at her!!!!

    Thanks for the laugh....I lose my sense of humor with her sometimes.

  • My middle son was laid off. He moved back home (which took some adjusting to) and began to re-tool. He finished a few classes and struck out again to find a job. He found a job that offers benefits. I think the whole thing is that you have to be willing to take some classes and add to your resume. In the interim, be willing to do anything if it is sweeping floors or flipping burgers. All work, no matter what it is, is honorable. There should be nothing we are "too good" to do when eating is at stake!
