I'm just wondering if this gov't shut down would effect the DA from collecting my child support.

Sounds like my life. Legally seperated about a year and a half. Bank took the house - long story - looking for a job since February and am disliking he term "over qualified".   **hugs**

Quoting idunno1234:

Its October 1st and I can't pay my rent or put heating oil in my tank.

I need a job but that need means absolutely nothing to potential employers.  I'm 53, was out of the job market for too long raising my kids and now I'm obsolete when there is so much for employers to choose from. 

Divorce, losing my house, having to move.....nothing has crushed me like my recent experiences in this job market.

 Hugs right back at ya.

My job saga is almost beyond belief....one ridiculous thing after another after another. 

I worked regularly since I was 11.  When still in school, I had two different jobs.  When I graduated, I got every job I interviewed for, including ones I had no experience in.  It was so easy.  Almost fun....lets see what I want to be today type fun.

Now.....there's not one thing fun about it.  I've worked as a dishwasher for $8.50/hr (laid off because their nightime business was slow), in customer service processing purchase orders (full time, for higher wage than I thought possible, opportunity to learn new skills, small growing company....then they laid me off after 3 1/2 months wihtout warning, eventually got rid of the whole department and now its a black mark on my sparse after children resume), had a job offer pulled out from under me when a more qualified person came along.....it just goes on and on, like some sort of neverending horror flick.

We gotta keep on keeping on.  There IS a job out there with our names on it!

Trying to decide my future... what should I be when I grow up??? lol... dh wants me to continue to pursue college, told me he don't care if it takes me 10 years to earn a 2 year degree... but I don't know if I want to try again, or if I want another job or both... dh works and makes good money but I can see where if I worked it would help, but if I don't work we will be ok... too much to think about!
