So, if you haven't already heard the news on Facebook or in person: today is the day Captain Midnight starts his brand spankin' new job.

(Yes, I agree wholeheartedly, "!!!!!!!!1!!!" Also, yay for not having to move!)

I just wanted to thank all the people who fasted and prayed for us, thought about us, watched out for us and otherwise did whatever they could to aid us during the approximately 10 months CM has been looking for work. We appreciate your kindness, your thoughtfulness and your generosity more than you can know. Truly, no one gets through life without a little help, whether given or received.

10 months...that's an amazing amount of time to survive without a job. Most Americans couldn't pull that off, I bet.
You folks done good.
And congrats on the new income stream, too!

Well, as noted, we didn't do it alone. We had a number of blessings, including a large and vibrant support system (family, friends, church, a small nest egg, and yes, unemployment benefits) that made sure we got through this OK. I don't really want to contemplate how things would have gone for us if we hadn't had all the support we received.
