So we've been living in Kentucky for about 7 months now. Neither one of us have found a job yet, living off of his unemployment and my once a week babysitting, where I only make about $40, because that's all we can do. Jesse has applied at so many places and none of them will hire him because he has a misdemeanor on his record. Or they claim they aren't hiring, even when they have a sign up saying help wanted. I knew it was going to be bad coming back here but I did it for him anyway... And still he keeps saying that it will get better but 7 months and it's still that same??? My mom is coming down here in January so we have to stay till at least then because she's already got the ticket and hotel, but if it doesn't get better after that we need to find a way to go back to AK. I love my husband and I love his kids and his parents, but I am not going to live wondering if I will soon be living on the street or if we'll be able to eat that day. I don't know what to do.

What about some sort of schooling or training for you DH?  I don't know about your states, but here they will pay for training.  I know a guy who went to truck driving school, and the unemployment office paid for it.

Well he's getting his Unemployment from Alaska, but we live in Kentucky so I don't know if they'd pay for training...
