So instead of basing up my Austrian cavalry tonight, I ended up Skyping with my eldest.
She's studying Civil Engineering out of province and has been having trouble finding a Civil Engineering related summer job. She got interviews but the economy is what it is and her one really solid opportunity collapsed with a hiring freeze. Returning home to work part-time as a cashier at a grocery store was looming large.
But she networked some more and at the last minute got herself a job with the provincial power company. So I'm very pleased.
But she's also not coming home for the summer.
You see my problem here, don't you?
