Hello everyone! I am excited about this forum and the stories/pictures to come. I probably won't have as many stories as most of you but I can always add my 2 cents!

As some of you may know I moved to Texas in late May for a job. Unfortunately, I lost my job and was jobless for a couple of months. I had to come back to Ohio because I couldn't afford to live in Plano without decent work. Every ounce of me didn't want to come back but its cheaper to live with family when you don't have work. I am determined to return to Texas as soon as possible. I loved the Dallas area and of course wanted to explore more of Texas but couldn't. If anyone hears or knows of companies hiring/expanding in Texas could you please let me know. Texas has a good economy but there are many people looking for work. I appreciate any help and all of your support.

Thank you!
Chris

Good to see you Chris!

Though I totally understand the difficulties of a young person balancing paying the bills in this economy, I'm sorry you had to leave Texas. You need to come back so Roush can play with a pig. What type of job are you looking for? Still working with animals?

Thanks Julie. I know, Roush never got to experience his roots and unleash his inner beast! Not looking for anything in particular, just a good job with stability and growth opportunities. I have a degree in Business Management. Working with animals is a side thing right now, volunteering/training. The search continues.......

Sorry to hear it, Chris. I know exactly what you're going through. I lost my job a couple of weeks ago because the owner decided to get out of the business. The business was paying for my housing as well, so now I'm living with my parents again. It was a great environment for my lacies (ranch employment) and this is less than ideal.
I lived in Dallas for a short time but unfortunately I've lost all my contacts from that area. I will keep you in my thoughts and let you know if I come across any job opportunities that might appeal to you. And, yes, the cost of living is very high in Dallas. :shock:

Thank you all for the support. Well, I was only out of Texas for a little over a week and now I'm in San Antonio. Something came up and my friend Doug, some of you may know him, has opened up his home for me until I get some stability. I feel blessed and so happy to be back in Texas.

I will keep you updated. Hope everyone is doing well.

Thank you,
Chris

Chris,

I am so happy to hear that you are back in Texas!! And, I'm glad that you are in San Antonio with Doug and Kathy!! They probably dont remember me, but tell them that I said 'hi' anyway. That is great that they are opening their home to you! If you are going to be a long way from home, then it is certainly better to be with friends than in a strange town, all by yourself. Now, Roush has some friends to be with himself!

Good luck with the job hunting and we will be waiting to hear from you!
Betty

Chris, congrats on making it back! Now that you'll be in San Antonio, you are even closer to all the working Lacy action, so I hope you can make it up to hang out.

And I second Jimmy. Though I never got to hear much of Doug's excellent advice, I was impressed with the help he did give, and I know this group would greatly appreciate and respect his expertise.
