Well, I decided to stay with the state after all. I will be working full time starting in February. Yup 4 10's. & a 1 hour lunch- so 11 hours a day. That will be quite the adjustment. The thought of not being with my family on my work days saddens me, but having an uninsured family scares me. So Nic & I are watching to see if anything better comes along, but for now, we'll adapt to some new changes.
