The last couple of days I have no appetite. Food doesn't inspire me and I haven't eaten much. Today I have a buffet luncheon to attend so it will be interesting to see what I feel like eating. The cause? My son is underemployed and it is a long story. In May he left the best job he ever had with benefits to embark on a new career as an EMT. They had money set aside so felt they could manage while he went to school. Unfortunately, he failed the licensing test the first time he took it. On Monday, he took it again and studied all weekend so hopefully he will pass it. We are waiting for the results. In the meantime, he has been working very part time and now they are desperate.
I knew this would happen and I did not want him to quit his job. I think now, he realizes what a mistake it was but you can't go back. I was very angry with him for a while, very angry. But now, the anger is gone and the worry has set in, big time. When he passes his test, he then must look for work as an EMT so we could be looking at a long time of helping them out.
In the meantime, my dIL also lost her job but found another one that pays a little more which is a blessing. However, they now don't have any health insurance for 90 days. The saga goes on. And Christmas is coming and they have 2 kids.
Like I said, the anger is gone and I have been praying a lot. Everyday I pray to God that he will pass his test and get a new job. So just keep us in mind. In the meantime, I might lose some weight which would be a good thing. My stomach is churning so much, I can't think about food. Later.
