Chris and work
I have been so busy and tired that I haven't had a chance to write about this yet. About a month ago, Chris changed is job again. When it was all happening I was really freaked out and frustrated, but in hindsight I see that it was a wonderful move. When we moved back to CA he was able to get a job within about 5 weeks. We were grateful, at the time, that he was able to get any job at all and didn't want to complain about the pay or hours. The company he was working for also told him that they were really busy and that he would be able to make ample money with their company. That turned out not to be the case. It was really hurting us financially (well I guess not more than we were already hurting, but it wasn't helping either). So he heard through the grapevine that the Mercedes dealer near us had moved into their new shop and were busy. So chris decided that he would go talk to the service manager again (he had been in there a few times in hopes that he would gain some sort of relationship with the boss and that if they ever were hiring they would think of him) and give him a resume. He did this on a tuesday and they ended up hiring him that day. He was so excited. He ended up being in the right place at the right time because the boss told him that they were going to begin looking through resumes the next day. So far it has all been working out for the better. He is making a good wage again and likes the people and the shop. He also doesn't come home so frustrated and cranky anymore. Hopefully it will continue this way and we will be able to pull ourselves out of the hole we have dug for ourselves.
