So, Erik's been out of work for two months now.
One interview, countless phone screenings that have led nowhere and no job, of course.
For the past few days, I've been scanning corporate websites for job listings and found about a dozen posts that Erik qualifies for. That's a dozen out of 400 companies (at least) that I've looked at.
It's also been pretty hard to find any kind of work for myself that is evening or on the weekend. Actually, it's unheard of.
The craptacular part of all of this is knowing that our tax return - that we had planned on using to refinish our basement and put into savings - is going to us surviving until April/May. I pray that Erik can find work sometime before then. It's scary not having one penny saved up.
