Monday 20th: Well went to the interview. I found it was group meeting to try and get me and about 7 others to sell insurance. Well I sat thru the meet and filed out the form for them to contact me but, I don’t think I will be called back. I not to hot on the idea of selling insurance.

She had been taken from us by father of the girl, about 4 years ago (he had very good/bad lawyer). The Dad was to have shared custody with the Mom but after few weeks disappeared into the next state. So fast forwarding ......
