My head hurts

Got word a little over an hour ago that the prison where the husband works (FOUR year old facility!) will be closing first of next year.

Our new Republican governor’s idea of a good way to save money.

Ya know, at 52, the job prospects get less & less.

So…I’m canceling my resignation from the job I hate.  Keeping a definite full-time job with benefits is too important right now.

Time to munch on some more Advil.

    I’ve watched one of my favorite uncles go through the same ordeal of trying to find a job after 40…hell, I’m a recent college graduate and it seems like no one is hiring.

    Advil? I’d be knocking back something a little stronger after THAT news, especially since you have to work at a placce you utterly hate.

    Awwww…so sorry Snigs. That just sucks. I voted for the guy who thinks he is helping education in my state. I don’t want to go into it. But there are cuts, and then there are CUTS.

    It sucks. I am sorry you all are going through this. I will be praying for you all.

    You know, I keep hearing that the Dow is over 12,000. WTF does that mean? Where is all the money and where are all the jobs? Where’s the damned “recovery??”
