We're Hanging On!

We're hanging in there with Marshall's current loss of job unexpected vacation. Marshall has been diligently calling every friend he knows at all the other facilities in town. He has made lunch dates with friends at different studios every day this week and a couple next week. These are mainly just to put his name out there to the higher-ups in case they have any work. Unfortunately so far he's been hearing the same thing everywhere... work is scarce due to the looming possible actors' strike. We have faith God will take care of us and that He has a plan in all of this.

And if Marshall is unable to find work, I told him I'd be willing to move to Montana and learn to cultivate the land. You know, as long as it doesn't snow. And there's no bugs. And not too much rain. And with lots of restaurants around for when I don't feel like cultivating the land. You know, the part of Montana where it's exactly like Los Angeles, only cheaper.

And apparently getting a GIANT BUNNY with GIANT RABBIT'S FEET didn't change our luck much. Just got news yesterday from our bank that our credit card number has been compromised. Again. 4th time since September. Each time our number has been stolen from a merchant we shopped at. When I mentioned the latest occurrence on Facebook, one family I know said it happened to every single member of their family in one week. They happen to live locally and I think we must all be shopping at the same place.

So to sum it all up, we're all doing fine and Marshall has decided to switch professions to the lucrative credit card number stealing racket. Hey, it seems to be working for them.

  1. wow! how annoying!! :( what is WRONG with people? why can't everyone just be honest?

    as for moving to montana...seems like a good plan. I hear it is JUST like los angeles. In fact, I think one of my friends refers to it as MonTangeles....due to the similarities, ya know.

  2. NO WAY...it happened again? That is just unreal. I still believe the giant bunny will bring you luck. Yep, he's just a little slow in the luck department, because, well he has those GIANT feet:)

  6. I hope the best for you! Very strange, but I had a dream last night about meeting a lot of friends from the blogworld at some film showing. You and Marshall were there. I'm sure it must have been his film showing :)

  8. Hey! I have a business idea for you guys. You could start breeding cats, bunnies and snakes! And Marshal could take pictures of them and make cute baby animal calenders and posters. And, if worse comes to worse, you could always eat the rabbits.
    More seriously: praying for you guys and wish I had a job for Marshal. Silly strikes!
