I forgot to post that Mike had a special meeting at work last Friday. Starting this week the whole plant (I mean, what's left of it) went to a four day work week. It's hard to enjoy perpetual three day weekends when you don't get paid for it & you're wondering if this is just a slow, agonizing process that will culminate in complete unemployment.
If you feel so inclined, please pray that his company will be able to sell some product & get some orders in. The work they have now is scheduled to be completed by the middle of February.
*On the bright side, he gets an extra day each week to work on the house ;-) The kitchen is coming together really nicely. Right now he's working on building the wooden counter tops. I love the way they look!
