We are determined to find a way and have several options we are considering -- all of which will be a year or more in the making. This certainly demands patience, or at least the quick learning of it!
We submitted a proposal for me to work from the road for the college from which I graduated and received notice that it has been met with interest and is going up to the next level of consideration. I never bank on any one thing and certainly do not want to get my hopes too high, but this is a good step in this journey -- and a tiny bit of positive news for the day.
If you don't have work you can take with you (and not many do), find the work to take with you. My lesson of the moment.
