Melissa has been thinking for quite awhile about reentering the workforce (so as to pay for the looming tuition/housing).  So yesterday she finally snagged a gig as media assistant for the public school system.  She’s pretty excited.  This way, Erin won’t get shafted by having to return home to an empty house.  Mel can work this way until Erin starts driving herself and then perhaps take a full-time job.  Who knows?  At any rate, change is in the wind.  I expect the gravy train of never having to help with meal prep or laundry is coming to an end.
