Will somebody employ me, please??

Never in a million years did I think it would be this difficult to find a job in Oxford, Miss. I have a college degree and some great professional experience, but that does not seem to matter here. The only thing that makes me feel better is to know that I am not alone. There is a great group of girls here whose husbands are in their first year of law school, and they are having just as difficult as a time as I am. It is not me, or them, it is the job market. I would love to work at the university, but unless I want to be a pilot, a custodian, or chemical scientist, or a pro-golf coach, they are not interested in me. I guess you just have to know the right people, and I do not know them, yet.

So this is my plan: If I am not employed by December 1, I am going to quit looking for a job and start having babies. That seems to be the logical next step. Aaron doesn't think that having a baby just because I am bored is a good idea, but he is not being very considerate.

i have to say that i'm with your husband on this issue. even though your babies would be cuter than most. still, procreation due to boredom might not be the best idea. we can discuss it this weekend if you want.

I think it's a great idea! I'll go get my catcher's glove ready! Ha!

Aww, Kelly. Tell you what: if you are willing to split your time between Mississippi and Albuquerque, you can come and be Kate's live-in aunt. I would love it. But I don't think I can pay you very well. Hang in there. Or, you know, have babies. We would love that, too.
