The Breaking of the Fellowship
I've had a wonderful summer with all four of my kids here in Spokane (in the same house even!) If you know me, you know there's nothing that makes me happier.
My "little buddies" Cara and Tony have been home every day while they were job searching. Which meant daily card games, lunch together, knitting lessons, adventures in canning and cooking, and my favorite -- scouting every thrift store and estate sale in town in search of inventory for my store.
It's been heaven. But it's over. Tony headed to Montana today to start his new job (he's working for a company that stocks convenience stores, with his territory Eastern Washington, Idaho panhandle and W. Montana) He'll be based in Spokane, but traveling several days a week. Cara starts her new job as a service writer at the local VW dealership next week. With horrible hours (M-F 7-7 ugh)
So it's back to me and the dogs at home all day. Boo. But I'm happy they both found jobs in this terrible market. So there's that.
