Neil's Best Thing


We've put aside school for a little while. We'll come back to it later--maybe just one class at a time, or try an online course down the road.

The focus lately has been employment. Neil has had a work study experience at this darling boutique for the past several weeks, and is about to begin a paid work experience there for eight more weeks. Then it will be on to the real job hunt with a job coach.

I haven't seen Neil this happy since the accident three years ago. He loves his job. He feels needed and useful because he is. He has a great relationship with his boss and coworker. I love his job, too.

Next time you're in Somerville, come check out the store on main street. Even if Neil's not there, you'll love the place. Cute stuff, great prices, awesome people.

That is GREAT news! Congrats Neil! Isn't it great to feel needed and appreciated? I think we all need that and I am so happy he has found something he looks forward to, yay!!

What a great place!! I wish we had one close to us. Neat items. Do they carry baby items?? Have fun Neil. You will love working with the public. I've always loved retail. You meet so many neat people.

This is fantastic! I agree, it feels great to have a job where you know you are doing good and useful work. Way to go!

Good for Neil! I'm afraid if I worked at a fun place like this I would spend my whole paycheck on cute clothes and accessories. Don't be buying too many purses and earrings, Neil ;o)
Love, Aunt Michelle

No baby stuff Cindy :-(. It was the first thing I looked for. Michelle, I have to admit, I have been enjoying Neil's employee discount a little too much :-)
