a brief reprieve

It seems that even though our voice line is completely dead, they have either forgotten or neglected to disable the data line. For the day, I was able to go through my mail, set up a small private site, read a few people, and enjoy my lifeline. Tomorrow may hold a different situation.

Thank you for all of the wonderful kindness that you have extended since that last post yesterday. You did so much to break the deep blue funk that had covered me all day. Any woman would consider herself lucky to have such friends.

Well, I get paid this week. Friday, I will again rob Peter to pay Paul, not to mention feed everyone and gas the car. Hopefully I will be able to satisfy SBC and get my phone back. Things are never as dark and hopeless as they seem. What's one week of no phone in the great scheme of things? Nothing. A paltry inconvenience and nothing more.

In the meantime, I will be posting from my parents' home or from a public computer at work, so do check back. I'm sure that by the time Friday gets here, I'd be at the bursting point if I didn't blog a bit in the interim.

Thank you again, kind souls. I'm truly blessed with you all.

I'm so broke I robbed Peter AND Paul, and held Mary for a ransom of two thousand dollars and 300 Ball Park franks.

I know the feeling. I was a short day away from a disconnect on the web myself.

Luckily the wife finally got a job. Pay is shit, hours are this, job is shit, but every penny counts.

Been in your situation very recently - thankfully we have relatives overseas that can and will help.

I've viewed that situation as "The Plus A Headache" rule - no matter how bad it is, it can always be worse, so you just keep pushing.

One of those Old Marine sayings - "No one said you gotta like it - you just gotta do it!"

Mama, your plight is a reminder to us all just how tenable our existance is. Every month there is increasingly more day than payday, on a fixed income there is always someone or something to erode away what little you have to exist on. Keep the faith and never give up. It will get better. God bless you and your family.
