I've spent the past few days writing up cover letters for him and researching potential jobs in the area, he's spent time on the phone to the Timber Framer's Guild trying to get contacts and advice and researching jobs as well. I know it's only a couple of days in, but he's discouraged with the lack of response. No patience this man, I tell ya!
Anyway, in my opinion Roan always has a way of cheering people up. He's the best little kid ever. I swear. His heart is always in the right place. I know Eric can get frustrated with him but I cannot get over how much those two are alike. They are practically the same person with 20 years between them. The reason I bring this up is because he spent an hour on Wednesday trying to make Eric a card to let him know he cares. Here's some pictures of it:
On Friday things progressed in a better direction for Eric and it looks like his boss spoke out of context or something, but he'll get paid and they'll keep working on the book. I do think if we have to find a silver lining this whole situation kicked Eric in the ass with a reality check and he knows what he needs to prepare for now going forward. He's going to still continue on with the job search and maybe to do two jobs. We know eventually this book deal is going to run out so he needs some back up when that happens.
