    Well, as some of you may know I had a bad spell a while back. I lost three grandparents and my job within the same month. I was unemployed for about a month and had to sell my lcr and my second truck to get by. Well a few weeks ago I got a new job with the tree company. It's been goin pretty damn good and I got my second paycheck today, it sure feels awesome to have a paycheck again. I'm workin Monday thru friday 7 am to 5:30 pm and have the weekends off. I feel like I have a normal schedule, my last job I worked really late and worked all weekend.

    Now that I have weekends off I can finally attend the weekend family get togethers, my little cousins b day partys that are always held on the weekends, ect. I'm starting to feel like a normal person with this Monday-Friday gig.

    I make about 75 cents less an hour than my last job, but I drive ten minutes to work instead of 40 minutes. I work fiftey hours a week compared to thirty eight hours a week. I've crunched the numbers and I'm going to wind up makin allittle more money a month.

    I've had time to heal with the loss of my grandparents, and I'm happy there in a better place and are no longer suffering. There last few months were pretty rough and I know they were not happpy with their quality of life.

    All in all I'm doin better than i have in a while, you guys of gt told me to keep my chin up and things will turn around. To be honest when I was having all my problems I had my doubts, now I understand what you guys were sayin!!!!

    Thanks again gt'rs for your support.

    Tac i don't know you, but i am happy for you that your life has taken a turn for the better! In these days of unfair news for almost everyone to hear your story is a bit of good news for Americans in general.
    I lived in Wichita for a year when i was in the service (McConnell AFB, 1980-1982) so i have some idea of what things are like there anyway.

    I think everybody crosses the same roads and bridges of life somewhere down the line. Some earlier and some later in life but you got up and dusted yourself off stood up and got your self together and now back in the stream of things and tougher for it. Good for you. :thumbsup:

    I'm happy you got a job because you start fewer pointless threads.

    I know all too well how horrible it feels to be unemployed/underemployed. Very happy that you finally got things back on track in your life.

    It's encouraging that the job market had an uptick in October. I think with the sea change in congress, people will feel more confident in starting new businesses and begin hiring again.
