Ninth Month Update: Stuck

I won't be here for the 2nd of June. Were will I be, you ask? MICHIGAN! Mom and Dad are footing the bill and we are outta here. The kids and I will be spending almost a week there and my sister and her kids and my sister-in-law will be meeting us out there. It's just what I need right now...a break from everything. So looking forward to it!!!

Yes, that time of the month is coming up once again. Another month gone by. Nine total months of unemployment. Nine total months of our name still being on the prayer list under those who are unemployed at church...while others come and go, we seem to be stuck there.

I have been nothing but open and honest throughout this whole thing and will continue to be. I. Am. Frustrated. (and I will leave it at that).

At the end of May, we will lose our health insurance. Something I thought would never happen...surely we would never make it to month nine. Here we are. We were able to get the kids put on the state health insurance but Dan and I are without. Makes me kinda nervous.

Continue to pray for us. It's been rough around here. Dan has his resume out there for a couple of carpenter jobs...we are hoping something pops up SOON (if anyone in the area hears of anyone hiring carpenters, please let us know). It would be nice if things were picking up like they say. He is also testing for a department the third Saturday in June and I am very hopeful.

Still. Waiting.

3 things to add:
