Wednesday’s Reality

Today should be a good day. The 2nd means we made it through another month without going hungry and our food assistance is replenished for the month. I even have gas to get to and from the grocery store in a neighboring town. The problem is I have a past due electric bill, and a shut off order applied to my account as of yesterday. With this in mind, I am hesitant to purchase food ( particularly persishables)

The past-due amount is $ 171.00.

Today, I also face having my internet shut off again. That amount is $128.00

And AGAIN, the mortgage went unpaid for September. $431.87. They gave me 7 days ( on the 30th ) to pay or face foreclosure. Actually they are trying to get us to quit claim title back over to them. 😦

Any one can be paid directly to the specific entity and I will gladly provide specifics.

And I am still living in what is fast becoming squalor. With our plumbing and back load of trash still piled everywhere.

it sucks because I know that we are doing EVERYTHING we know to do to help ourselves. AND I can’t continue living this way. I don’t wish this on my worst enemy… TODAY I feel as though I am suffocating.

AND YET, Every move I make I question whether or IT would be pleasing to GOD! Even pleasing to those I have grown close to.

I have tried desperately to remain positive through this. I cling to my faith. I pray and I pray some more.

I have reached out in every way I know how. AND YES, I realize that no one here owes me one red cent and I know how all this must sound. I know how it sounds to me. I hate being so dependent, but the fact remains that I am, and this is why I began this fundraiser to begin with.

TRULY, I don’t want to keep BEATING a dead horse. This is our only HOPE! To reach someone that is financially able to STEP up beyond all reason and HELP where the GREATEST needs are!

Last but not least, I am quite thankful for the assistance we have gotten in this fundraiser. A FEW have GONE WAY ABOVE and BEYOND!

It’s amazing, quite honestly! I hope I have sufficiently expressed my gratitude to everyone who has helped us on this journey, Sometime I wonder about that too.

However, donations are still DESPERATELY needed.

So PLEASE, if you are able, please donate. If you have questions or would like to help with a specific need, please ask.

Thank you ALL for listening…

My pleas are heartfelt and genuine,

God Bless You.

Another one of ‘THOSE’ posts! :) $390.00 NEEDED!

Good Morning –

Hmmmmmmmm. How do I write this post?

There are days when I can almost forget our situation. This IS NOT one of them SO I ask for your understanding and patience with me today as I once again REACH out with some immediate needs in mind.

$390.00 to GO!

No not just a random number I picked out of a hat. It’s the balance of a $3000.00 goal set nearly five months ago. After raising $2,610.00 in as much time , it would seem like a piece of cake to come up with huh?

Well……it would be if we had a viable income which we don’t. Ron has an interview this afternoon. Hopefully we’ll have a real job by the end of the day but it’s early yet.

Anyway, Time stops for no one and as life happens, the needs shift and change and change again.

Our last VERY generous donation ( Labor Day ) went to pay August’s mortgage. it is due again on the 16th ( but we have until the end of the month to pay without penalty.

The following ( below the dotted line ) represents a list of items still not reckoned with ( conditions we are still living with , ( I could actually add a few things to it ) but AGAIN those NEEDS get put on the back burner….

But in trying to stick within the guidelines I myself set for this fundraiser, we are talking about $390.00. $390.00. would purchase a burn barrel which would help us get rid of paper trash. It would afford us a couple dump runs, it would put gas in our car and maybe even pay for a hair cut.. . It would pay a couple of small bills this month . Today, I have just shy of $6 to my name.

FACT IS, we need it as much now as we did 4.5 months ago.

SO once AGAIN, I am asking for donations. PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE and as ALWAYS thank you!

We are still SO VERY grateful for ALL the support and friendship we have found here.

Please never forget that! God Bless!

1) Garbage Disposal ( an accumulation of household garbage stacked up that needs disposing of. The cause is from from not being able to pay for our regular trash service for several months , and then an escalation of the bill long after service was stopped )

2) Septic Service ( within a month of moving in, we realized this problem but remedied it by not using our washer. Bottom line, our septic systems needs pumped out )

3) Home Maintenance & Repairs to include a major plumbing fix Right now we can’t use our kitchen sink at all and our only water source is in the bathroom.

4) We also desperately need to purchase a used washing machine.

12 days shy of 5 mo. Anniversary, $390.00 to Our Goal!

donations-accepted

We would love to reach it in the next 12 days. We actually NEED to reach our goal sooner than that. Do you think we can do it? I do! πŸ™‚ Because of the length of time it has taken us to get this far, not all the needs have been reckoned with, however, reaching our goal would give us a fighting chance. Wheeeeww!

It’s exciting to think about it. SO very very very very close NOW.

If we received 20, $20.00 donations…

If we got 39, $10 donations …

8, $50 dollar donations …

or 4, $100.00 donations… We’d be covered!

My husband finally goes back to work tomorrow. I am working feverishly to get my web design services launched again. And also have started with Amazon Mechanical Turks. All the while still applying for jobs that present themselves. I am hoping that interviews will come of at least a few of those I applied for last week,

Donations are still NEEDED and GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks to all of you who have supported us and continued to support us in this effort.

What an AWESOME thing you are doing for us.

GOD BLESS!

when things fall apart,
it just means they’re
about to be put back together
in a new and better way” ~ Mandy Hale

One can hope! πŸ™‚ We really need a few miracles here.

Trying my best to hold it together. It’s Monday, and the mortgage worries continue…

Your donations are still needed and very much appreciated.

PAY PAL is PREFERRED for a couple of reasons. 1) Funds are transferred in REAL TIME giving us immediate access. 2) My mortgage holders have an pay pal account and I can transfer directly to them from my pay pal account. 3) The donations are easier to keep track of with their statement system.

If you would like to donate via pay-pal, please click here.( you will be directed to our personal website where you will find a button for paypal. ) Click on it to donate any amount )
