Subject: Something I haven't' Talk about on here...
Security: Public
I hadn't really talked to that many people about this since we heard but my father looks to be out of a job soon. He has worked for Montgomery Wards for 20 years of his life. With the announcement of the company closing it appears that his position in their repairs division will be disappearing soon. They haven't heard official word on if they are closing yet, there has been some talk about them possibly being sold to another company, but that is very unlikely. My dad seems to be taking it all right. but I'm not really sure. I ask him if he's heard anything new everyday and he tells me what is up. I was talking to my mom and I told her we need to get a resume together and I will start posting it up on some web sites so he can start getting some calls from other companies. I'm not really sure what he wants to do now. He has repaired TVs, VCRs, Stereos and all other types of electronics for years. I'm just hoping he can find a job out there he enjoys like the one he has now.
I'm taking him to the Kings vs. Blues game on the 13th. Which just happens to be my birthday. I mentioned I won the tickets at my work Christmas party and he really sounded interested in going so I asked him to go with me. My dad isn't a big hockey fan, but I really enjoy spending time with him at sporting events, it gives us time to talk about life and also I explain to him what is happening. Since I have such vast knowledge of all sports. :)

Last night I went out with my friends, Dip (Stephen), and the Furs (Jim and Jen). We went to my favorite sushi bar, Satsuki in Orange. I haven't been there for months and it was really great getting to spend time with them and talk. I'm looking forward to doing the sushi thing more often again. It's amazing how almost all my friends are 5-10 years older then me.
Tonight is D&D night, which will be fun since we took a month off for the holidays. It almost seems like it was just a couple months ago that we took a month off for last years holidays.
Sunday is the computer swap meet in Buena Park. I have to check prices on computers for my moms work's new computer lab. I am going to be putting together the entire computer lab at the Boys and Girls Club of Stanton. I am really looking forward to that. It's great experience and I love doing things for the club. I practically grew up there.
Well I need to get to work.

Take Care to everyone that reads this and say hi to me.

Hey Dan,

This is Amie (stilldodgerfnatc). I was just reading your journal and wanted to say hi, and to tell you that I am sorry to hear about your dad's job. That can be totally scary, but who knows, it could open up some new doors or something. Anyway, I'm thinking about you and hoping everything works out. Talk to you later. :)

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Hey there,

My mom just started a new job last week after being laid off for the 3rd time in something like 6 years. This time was very good for her though, she got to take some time for herself, live off of the very good severence package, and get a lot of things done that she normally wouldn't have time to do. The same exact thing has happened to a lot of people that I know. I'm not sure if it's just the job market in Massachusetts or if it's that way across the whole country. There's not the job stability that there used to be. You don't hear too many stories about people working 30-40 years at places that often anymore. It's not the best of experiences, but at least it's happening at a time when unemployment is low and the job market is very good.
