Hi-ho, hi-ho: I head back to work this morning for the first time in six months!
This all happened so quickly that it’s still a blur. On Monday, a praying friend asked if I had any news about jobs. I replied, “All quiet on the job front.” And now it is Thursday, and I have to get ready for my first day on the job.
This is a 4-6 month contract, so I am still looking for a full-time job (with good benefits to support a family). But this buys me valuable time, which was running out. And because I get no benefits, we get to keep COBRA, which continues the excellent coverage I had in my last job. And thanks to the federal stimulus package, our payments have been reduced a whopping 65%, which has been credited retroactively, so now we have a positive balance to draw on for a few months and low payments after that!
I tell you, we have a weird Just-In-Time God.
The company I will be working for is
