This has definitely been a crummy year for Daddy job-wise. One aimless job and one overly-stressful job, neither of which worked out. Then some confusion about his unemployment benefits (which thankfully worked out). This Friday will mark 8 weeks of being out of work. There's some irons in the fire, but some rejections too. One place was where a friend worked from way back BP (Before Pepi). It would have been a new position, but Dad's not sure he wanted to be that much in charge of a lot of things. It's too bad it didn't work out, but sometimes that's for the best.
But I am enjoying the extra time having Dad around. This week Dad started volunteering at the local food pantry. He's gone for like 3 hours and I couldn't wait to see him again! I was right at the door to the garage when he pulled in. Dad likes going to the food pantry. While it's sad that SOOO many people need its services, he's very happy that he's helping and there are other people and businesses willing to help. Dad wants to give a shout out to Trader Joe's for their donations.
And since it is Christmas time, along with several other holidays rich in traditions, and since Dad recently discovered a liking for Celtic music, he's also going to give a shout out to Marc Gunn and his Celtic Music podcasts.
They're good podcasts. Marc Gunn is also a new father so if you like his work, give him your own shout out and spread the word and if you can, buy his stuff. The best way to support independent musicians is to buy their CDs and spread the word.
Hmmm, this isn't so little. Well I'll close by saying it's Dad's birthday tomorrow so some celebration is in order.

Our Meowmy hasn't had work for 10 months but is job hunting again after Christmas!! It's nice having her home especially since I's never lived with Meowmy when shes had a job so it will be weird when shes finds one!! Good luck to your Daddy on his job hunt. It's so nice of your Daddy to volunteer at the food pantry!! Happy Birthday to your Daddy!!
