I am working in Millbrae, a pretty little town near San Francisco, and spending the nights in a cheap motel in San Bruno. The motel has internet access but the signal is weak.
The pay isn't great, but it's a lot better than the tax agency. I have moved up from being paid peanuts to being paid walnuts. Still, I am helping a good friend and we are enjoying each other's company and the work. It's really nice to be productive.
I miss my wife, my dog and my cat.
