Despite our constant efforts networking, applying for jobs, interviewing majority me. I am underemployed and for the time being keeping the finances from draining as fast. I know it effects my DS despite the smiles on our faces is a pit of nonstop worrying. So when we can do something for him a simple public outing with a friend. I take it to heart because that I can do. I never spoken about our unemployment/underemployment. I kept the topic light. I'm not there to be a "friend" to a mother that clearly made a snap judgement about me. But give the kids a chance.
