Dear Joseph and Lucia,
Big things have happened since I last wrote to you. Management at the company I work for has decided my job is no longer necessary. As a result, I was laid off on Friday. Despite the bad news of being without a job, there are some good results. First and foremost, I moved back home to Richardson over the weekend. I should be ok to keep sending child support checks for a while. I have a bit of a “breather” to relax in my own home after 2 years of living in Oklahoma away from my family I have here.
I don’t have any job leads yet, but today is the first day of my new job search. I have to freshen up my resume and all my online profiles. I also need to look into unemployment and start watching my budget more closely. These are the things grown ups get to deal with.
I hope all is well at home with you and this change won’t disrupt you too much. I know my last time of unemployment likely put you guys and your mother in quite a pinch. I will do the best I can to keep that from happening again.
So waiting now includes a job lead and a message from you.
