Found a job!!!

Finally got all moved form Alaska on August 1st and got a job today. Working for a local Lawn Care Company as their Spray Technician. Not the kind of pay I'm used to and no benefits, but a job in this economy is hard to come by so I'm happy. Now I just need to learn all the region specifics.

Thanks, it is a huge difference but much better. I'd rather be hot than cold any day.
