Back to the Basics of Surviving in the Day to Day!

Today, I am feeling down and lost somehow. I don’t like when the HUGE PICTURE ( all the wonderful things that have come out of this fundraiser) get buried just trying to survive in the day-to-day. Today is one of those days. I try to always remain positive . Truly I do! But some days are harder than others and this is one of them.SO here I GO… READY SET… BEG…

Please if you are able, DONATE! $5. $10. $15, $20, ANYTHING REALLY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY!

We are forever GRATEFUL for the ALL the support and continued SUPPORT!

God Bless.

$20.00 GoFundme Donation R’vd Overnight. :)


Bringing our R’vd to Date figures to $1,765.00. That’s almost 60% of our $3000.00 goal. Thank you so much my friend. 🙂

It all adds up !

All But Homeless is a personal fundraiser to help us recover from financial ruin. Donations needed and greatly appreciated. Our story is told in the pages left , Thank you ALL for your kind support.

!?! Time Crunch and another Poor Folk Catch 22 !?! RESOLVED!



DOWN to the WIRE! This concerns auto insurance and a pending drivers license suspension as of midnight tonight without coverage.

IF the drivers license is suspended, our tags will be pulled, there will be penalty fees added to all this to get straighted out with Florida DMV

Ironically, we have the down payment (80.00 in paypal) and another $45.75 in route to us. Let me rephrase, we have what we need IF the check comes in today, the cows come home and the creek doesn’t rise. Sighs. STILL. if the check comes in today, it will take some major scrambling today to get it done!

Our biggest PROBLEM is IMMEDIATE ACCESS to this funding.

I thought I had it all dealt with over the weekend, by purchasing temporary debit at Dollar General for $4.95 to link to paypal funds. EXCEPT , not only did they want the $4.95, they wanted another $20.00 in CASH loaded to the card. CASH, that we didn’t have. Anotherwords which doesn’t make sense, I could not pay for it with paypal funds, but I can buy anything else in the store with paypal funds!

Therein lies the problem for us.


I just put our last $5 in the gas tank and my husband is on his way to town to a doctors’ appt. From there he will come home and wait for mail. If the check arrives, we will head back out to cash it on a wing and a prayer.

And then stop by the local General Direct office to secure our insurance which will leave us totally broke.

Donations desperately NEEDED.

And if someone is willing to Western Union the funds. that is even better!

PLEASE RESPOND if you are able to help in any way.

Our contact info is on our DONATION page. Funds can be sent to Cheryl.

Anything you can do IS greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Please wish us luck as ( we will need it) and have a wonderful day!

Mortgage Deadline Looming!!! This is a BIGGY! Donations NEEDED!

Now includes update 🙂 Thank you.

Since June 1, 2013, we have been able to make two partial payments towards June mortgage payment for a total $ 215.00. $ 256.87 is still due and we have about half of that set aside.

On June 14, 2013, we received a letter from the people who hold our mortgage making a demand for the balance of $256.87 ( in full) for June no later than June 30, 2013. That’s this Sunday.

!!!!! UPDATE!!!!!! Thanks to an anonymous donor’s most generous contribution ( JUNE’S PAYMENT IS PAID IN FULL )

July’s payment of $431.87 is due no later then the 16th of next month.

SO, we still NEED some help in this area and it has to be the focus.

This is all outlined on our needs page.

Like I said, first and foremost, we are trying to keep a roof over our heads and in all other area of our situation, there has been a vast improvement.

We feel that if we can get this particular need met, everything else will ultimately come together as it has been doing for weeks now. Slow but sure. 🙂 Thank you Lord!

PLEASE NOTE : Donations VIA Pay Pal are preferable ( in this case) as the people who hold the mortgage have a paypal account and I can transfer directly to them in REAL TIME so there is virtually no waiting involved .

The email address associated with our pay pal account is :

If you have questions, please ask. If you need documentation concerning mortgage, OR are in a position to pay the entire amount directly to the mortgage holder. That too , can be arranged.
Please just email me for details.

Thank you all so very very much.

We are on our way and though we can’t give up just yet , we are in a much better place because of the generosity and kind support found here. YOU GUYS ( and GIRLS 😉 ) are AWESOME!


Please note that these people have been really good to us but their patience is obviously wearing thin.

I am grateful! :) Thank you.

I love this and I have to agree. 🙂 How appropriate!

Another hectic day. My husband had an early doctors appointment, but it was postponed only after he got there. I waited for the mail, and another check from GoFundme’s pay agent and then took off myself. First to use the phone bank at our local service center to do my phone interview . And then on to the bank .

I love this time I have alone in the car, to think, reflect and count my blessings.

I just got home to find a paypal deposit for $50.00. Thank you so very much Louella. HUGS!

Thank you all in fact for kindnesses, support and encouragement.

A NEW Fundraising Perspective! Whoot! Progress!

I am so excited this morning. Little by little, things are turning around for us .

YAY! Thank you ALL SO much!

Theoretically, if all continues to go in the direction it is going and IF we can get the following needs met, we’d be in a pretty good place. At least stable enough to go on from here. Perhaps I am being a tad optimistic, however a month ago, I couldn’t have itemized this list with as much clarity. That’s how overwhelmed I was. SO YES, we are seeing some AMAZING PROGRESS in our fundraising effort.

The following represents OUR GREATEST NEEDS, as of this moment! Click on the image to see the BIG picture! If you have questions, please ask. If you’d like to donate, please do!

Donations are gladly accepted thru paypal or GoFundme.

We have also provided a mailing address ( Donation Page on MENU LEFT ) if you would like to send funds or gift cards directly to us. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, do not send CASH.

You can also pay most of these items directly to intended entity/service provider . Please email me for pertinent details.
We most definitely still need some help! But we are SO thankful for all the support ( monetary and otherwise) we have found here!

God Bless You ALL.


PS This list DOES NOT in anyway cover all of our NEEDS or indebtedness! That is not our goal here. WE just want our lives back and ya’ll are helping us get the accomplished 🙂 ! Thank you….
