So, it's been a long time since I just posted something other than graphics, or movie trailers. I haven't really, up till now, felt I had much to share. Now, though, I'm in the need to share some real life news, and frustrations it brings. I'm also in the need of help, but I am very reluctant to ask for it.

A few months back, my hubby got the job offer of a lifetime. He would be working for a company that takes care of it's employees, and it would be doing something that he has only ever dreamed of doing. See, he is a tuba player and teacher, and he has thought for many years that he would end up getting a teaching job at a college or something similar. That would have been fine with us, as it's what he's trained for a long time to do. His biggest dream for the long haul has been to play in a big orchestra, but that's nearly impossible to do. Well, this job is working for a music company, where he will be learning to repair and actually build tubas, as well as sell and play them on a daily basis. He would get to travel and will probably also get to teach as well. It's a dream come true for him, and something we are really excited about. Now for the problem.

This job is located in New Jersey, which is really far away from here, and has a much higher cost of living than here. We have had some major financial issues lately, and as of right now, we don't have near enough money to even attempt the move. It's so frustrating because, once he starts getting paid (and I find a job and start getting paid as well), we should be okay, but it's the getting there and getting set up and started that is what's holding everything up. The job is already his, we just have to get there. It's causing us so much stress right now, that we're getting to the point where we want to give up. My family has helped, and is trying to help as much as they can, but it's not nearly enough. I even got a job here to try and take up some of the financial slack, but it's doesn't pay much. This is all so frustrating.

This is a chance for us to really, finally start our lives and make a living for ourselves. It's the first real chance we've had to be on our own and live. I just see it all slipping through our fingers. I've been praying and hoping and wishing for a miracle.

So this is what I've been dealing with for the past several months, and it's only getting more frustrating. My mom even set up a GoFundMe page for us, but it's hasn't gotten much traction. I'm reluctant to post the link here, because of all the recent uproar with LJ, and I have no idea who will actually read this (this is crossposted from DW). Also, I'm just not that comfortable asking for money. Mostly, I'm just asking for advice and just to talk about what is going on. If anyone would like to see the GoFundMe page, just let me know, and I'll send the link. I'm not really expecting much, but even just a share might get it in front of more people.

Well, that's probably much more than I've said to anybody in a long time. If anyone has any questions, or just wants to talk, I'm here. Thanks for reading.

So, my hubby walks into the room and says that I need to go watch this video on YouTube. I'm easily amused, and this definitely amused me. I think it'll probably amuse most of you too, especially if you're a Star Wars fan. Enjoy!!

Just what the title says. Job hunting sucks... especially when I don't have a lot of experience doing it. Most of the jobs I've held in the past were found for me through an employment agency. I also haven't had a full time job in over 6 years. I hope I'm doing it right.
