Going back to work after a 12 month layoff!
Today marked being laid off for 12 full months. The good news is that I received a call today and have been called back to work with my former employer, American Steamship Company. It's been so long, it really felt good to get the call that they have a job for me. I'll board my new ship on this Friday or Saturday. I'm just a temporary relief filling in for someone that's getting off, but it's still a good paying job anyway. If I get 30 days in, my health insurance will be reinstated and I'll be able to stop making the COBRA payments to keep my insuance going. Hopefully the domestic steel industry continues to recover and I'll get a steady job out of it. I've got several things I want to do with my Mustang project to finish it up, maybe now I'll have the money to do it. If I can come up with the money, I'd like to drop my car off at Team Z and see what they can do to get my car to hook better! I'm also kind of past the workable limits of my Holley Blue fuel pump and desperately need to upgrade to an Aeromotive A1000 or similar fuel system that will work both at the track and on the street.
