Yes- employed. I fall into the same category as Mary above. It can be busy for a few weeks or over a month and then a sizeable lull follows. I have been optimistic that things were turning around a few times over the past 15 months but it was the old “false summit”, in mountaineering speak. Right now I am encouraged by some positive trends in the news.
Feels kinda odd that I am now cleaning and repairing the facilities that I designed and built a few years ago. Am looking for the light at the end of the tunnnel … so to speak, but it sure is dark in there! Acceptance of the situation is currently the hardest part of the entire process and I am getting tired of hearing “…well at least you have a job.” While I apppreciate the employment and the opportunity it is still disheartening. Good Luck to all and keep pushing!
