He has a couple of appointments with the job-search agency that his ex-company is providing to help with updating his resume, going over interview skills, figuring out where to start looking, etc. Although it's been very nice having him around the past two months, I really want him to get back into that "professional" mode now and start the hunt in earnest. I don't think he realizes how long it can take someone with his level of experience to find something suitable. We already plan on him having to take a sizeable pay cut -- I just hope it's not more than 30% less. One day at a time, right? Please hold some good thoughts for us!
