2 more people have come asking for my help getting leads on jobs in the past day, bringing the total to around seven thousand, give or take a few. People are desperate, this market is terrible. I'm glad I've got a good job, I'd be in trouble otherwise.
(Thank you, God, for keeping me healthy and employed and sane (well, mostly) and able to care for my children. I guess for all my bitching I'm actually in a really good place in a lot of ways, I've got a steady job I like, a good place to live, two healthy, beautiful children, my father helping me, and I can support us all. Things could be a lot worse, and I'm grateful for what I have. So, yeah.)
