Life has been going and going and going with things changing fast leaving me a little curious how to move forward with the blog. I am really trying hard to keep writing as much as I can, but I always seem to have about two hours at the end of my days to actually spend time with my family before I have to sleep for the next early morning at my current job.
And I'm not particularly complaining about the job that I have or being a little bit tired as I am in real need of income right now. But moving on from that I just want to give some personal updates to all of ya.
As I had said before I did find a good job. I'm currently working at the Lowe's Distribution Center in Statesville (currently the second largest? distro for Lowe's) where I am a receiving clerk. Basically I unpack trucks onto pallets and send them off to either sit on a shelf or go directly to a store. Mind numbing work for four days a week. It doesn't pay a lot but it is work.
We have been working to get Elizabeth a job, we are fairly certain she has one as we are just waiting on a phone call back to verify. Though she has been working with my mother to make sure we are able to get all of the products at Handmakerr up on the web. It's a pretty tedious process as we are inventorying again all the items we have to get a better sku system down.
Needless to say we have been busy. We are working hard to get back out on our own but it has been a difficult path. Long story short, we became victims of wage theft for thousands of dollars. We had to cut our lease and leave Tennessee and it has been a struggle so far.
If you have visited the site a lot, you will have noticed a donate button. You can donate money if you would like to help support us and the site. A lot of the money will be used to help make sure we can get our finances to a point where we can get into our own place again so we can function as a family with Oliver. Sadly we will not be able to afford the birthday party we were hoping for Oliver. But that's okay. We will do the best that we can.
Hope this helps answer some of the questions people have about the changes on the site as well as what is going on with us. I am hoping to be able to get some more in depth content posts for you all.
