someone at work who knows about my troubles gave me a bit of money today.. made up the bit i was missing for tomorrow's rent. i helped her use nutrition to get pregnant after a year and a half trying without success. baby's due later this year. at least now it's august 1st to worry about not july 1st!!
px, i think being more than qualified is in some cases, exactly the problem. in others, differently qualified. or, i was qualified 10 years ago but haven't done anything in that field since.
oh well. in the short term i'm going to try for some music students, it's the best hourly rate available in the absence of a real full time permanent job with benefits ... but not the best time of year to attract new customers. i've just decided to add singing to my repertoire of lessons making me a triple threat of sorts LOL hope that will help.
thanks again for the kind words all.
