We need some prayer...please.
« on: November 14, 2009, 03:16:26 PM »
My family and I live in a medium sized city in Oregon with a wonderful parish near by. But times are tough for us financially and living here is difficult...playing catch-up is the monthly stress and we've dug ourselves into quite a hole which, if something else needs money, we won't make it out of.
I was offered a position in another town, also with a nice parish in it, which would give us more income and my wife has a possibility of gaining not only a relocation to that town's store, but also a promotion.
This is all a big "IF".
I went for the interview, and due to the snow ( 3 hours turned into almost 5 - 1 way) and my chains breaking, and getting lost on my way there, I was only able to speak for 5 minutes with the interviewer. They said I might be able to get a phone interview today.
Haven't heard from them yet today.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

Thank you for your concern - Papist
None yet really...I'm always working on something. I have a book in progress, links with a catering company turning restaurant soon (souschef position), small amount of unemployment, I instruct classes at a local kitchen store, my own consulting services company (just waiting on clients), plus services offered as a personal chef for the holidays including a previous employer who is hiring me for an event next month...but nothing solid (full time). With all of this, I stay very busy but not enough hard currency coming in.
I'll keep you posted if things turn around.
