I got a call yesterday (Monday) morning from the temp place I had my job thru saying that the company I was at had a numbers reduction and I was a victim.
It was a lousy job with a very lousy company, but still it helped pay the bills. I was actively looking to leave it, but it would have been nice to have another job ready to go first.
Good news is that I am renting a house from my brother and he said not to worry about paying rent until I get another job. He has lots of contacts and is checking to see if any of them can help with that.
So between my wife's disability payment and my mother in law's help we can still afford to eat and pay the other bills. But this sucks. I haven't had much luck with getting interviews in my field of work since we moved back here to Phoenix.
And to top it all off, I still can't get to my workbench to build models. It has my wife's craft stuff stacked on it, she has run out of room to unpack any more boxes. Going to try to work on that this week, but there are also some house related things I need to do that are more important.
