    Buster Back to Work

    I have been on seasonal layoff since Thanksgiving of last year. It's something we expect and plan for each year, but this year we weren't sure when I was going back because of all of the struggles with the economy. Usually I go back some time in March, but this year looked like it may even be April or May. I was set with my unemployment to do just fine until June if need be, but it's always nice to be working and making so much more.

    Well, break out the heavy coats and insulated overalls because I talked to my boss yesterday and he told me that I will be going back to work in the next week or two!

    I'm right there with you Buster.

    I put my roofing crew back to work yesterday.

    I am calling another employee that helps me do siding/soffit/facia/doors and window to start that part of my business on Monday.

    We have 8 houses at the moment to get at, hard telling how many will come along after we get started.

    Forum time will be real scarce in a while for me.
