We live in SE Kansas. My DH took a job in North-Central WA state, so we drove the 28 hrs up there, only to find that the employer didn't tell the truth about the job, about the pay, about the benefits, the provided housing. We would have taken the job if we could have actually lived in the house. Aside from the chip-board floors and the lack of insulation in the walls and the pieces of insulation hanging from the ceiling, it wasn't livable. So we came home, and on went the job search. For 3 days hard manual work sun up to sun down on the ranch, she gave us $100. After the $600 we spent on fuel there and back.
We found another job in central WY, and drove 18 hrs there. DH LOVED the place, we said yes, we left to come home and pack our things. We even visited family and told them we were moving. The next night, DH called to tell the guy that we were moving there in 2 wks, and he says, "Well, I hired someone else. Sorry."

Just TRY to keep this in mind my friend? "When one door closes another one opens". I've been where you are and it sucks when you feel as though finally your getting a break then the rug gets snatched out from under you again! No matter what anyone may say or think the economy still Sucks and it is getting worse instead of better!!
