Danny's Home!

Dan's home!!!!!! I was deep asleep in a nap a few moments ago, when I felt a little tickle on my foot. I jumped up, startled, sure that my eyes were deceiving me. He had driven the six hours all the way back to Wenatchee from Portland. Apparently, the training for Union Pacific has been canceled all across the western region.

I'm so happy to have him home, and yet disappointed that he again has to try a new avenue of work. The company called it "furlough" meaning he hasn't lost his job, but they no longer need him. He will be called back when work picks back up. The unfortunate thing is that there are people who have been working for Union Pacific for four or five years and they are also on furlough. Things are not looking good for this job prospect.

Also, as a side note, I woke up from a dead sleep last night because I realized I had not mentioned the fact the title of my article was not written by me. I would never have titled my work "Jessica: An Amazing Woman." I was so embarrassed (and honored) that I forgot to mention that fact in my blog yesterday. I hope people know that I'm not that conceited. It was a huge compliment, written by the editor, but I would never have assumed that I should be considered an amazing woman. Maybe I have an amazing story, but I'm just doing what most people would do in the face of bad news. Anyway, I just wanted to clear that up.


  1. I read the title of the article and didn't blink an eye. An amazing woman? Duh. We all know that. :)
    I am sorry to hear about Danny's job. Darn job market/economy. I am happy that he is home with you though! Now he can cook you that salmon. Which goes deliciously with garlic. The more the better I say! And let me know if/when you would like more. Jay is a man possessed. I can't stop him. And the freezer really is full. I know I said that before, but this time I mean it. Thinking of you and Big Hugs ~ Sara

  2. ". . . just doing what most people would do in the face of bad news." I don't know about that. You do have an amazing story, but you are an amazing woman too.
    Glad Danny is home; you two are so in love it's obviously torture for you two to be apart. I bet some great job comes along. It's all part of the adventure. xoxoxox
