Good Morning _

Just wanted to check in. Lots going on both good and ( not so good ) The bad news is I was just advised that my sister-in-law lost her husband yesterday quite unexpectedly. He died in his sleep I guess. And he is only in his late 40s or early 50s. I didn’t know Billy well at all but my heart goes out to his wife Johnnie Sue this morning. I feel so bad for her, because they were very much in love.

His death also serves as a reminder to me to make every day count because you TRULY never know just how much time you have left on this earth.

Otherwise, I have a busy day planned. Lots going on, some of which has me feeling pretty hopeful.

For one, today I find out if I have that job I applied for last week. ( UPDATE ) I didn’t get the job but ironically they told me to keep them in mind and to keep checking back with them … 😦 )

Another thing I am working on is a ‘pay it forward’ web design project for a woman who does feral cat rescue work. She is a Facebook friend who I met a year or so ago. The other day, she did some networking for my cousin who is trying to find homes for kittens. She already has a Facebook community page with some 1600 followers. I was one her first followers. Anyway I saw an opportunity and help her expand the effort. It’s not all selfless though because I love animals, and have done a lot of rescue work in my time too but also I’ve been thinking about diving back into the competitive world of web design as a way to support us so the design work I do for her can be added to my poor, meager portfolio. 🙂 I adore web design but haven’t done too much of it lately.

I will share the link when she is ready to launch the site. Right now, there’s still a lot of tweaking to do.

Counting on ya’ll to pay her a visit and give her a warm welcome to the blogesphere though, k?

Last but not least, there is another thing that has my mind boggled . I don’t want to mention it YET because I am not sure if it for real. But if it is REAL, it could be life-changing and truly a miracle. Enough said on that other than I will be making some phone calls and doing some research on the matter. Sighs. I am not holding my breath but I can’t help but be a wee bit excited! 🙂

OH and YES — our fundraiser — there are 17 days left in August. We have raised $1987.00 to date. We still have $ 1,013.00 to go so DONATIONS ( large and small ) are STILL needed and VERY much appreciated. PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE!!! WE still NEED YOU!

A Bleak Week

I hate writing these posts. But it has been a pretty bad week, as weeks go. We promised a full mortgage payment ( $ 431.87) by the 26th of April, and still haven’t been able to come through on our promise to the people who hold our mortgage. Emails are now flying back and forth. Some aren’t so nice. 😦 All I would promise is to start paying again by the week yesterday. We didn’t hear from them again. Which is just as well because we were still short by $30 of the $125.00 weekly pmt, as of last night.

I got another ( not so nice ) email overnight .

To make matters worse, we received notice that the opposing attorney in our business eviction has finally petitioned the judge for FINAL JUDGEMENT. At this point I don’t know what that means. All I know is that once the judge signs it. We have 24 hours to clear out.

The problem is that we don’t have the means to move or store the merchandise once that happens. So chances are we will lose that too.

So we are just waiting for them to lower the boom.

I am quite overwhelmed right now. And I didn’t sleep well last night so that doesn’t help either.

I just don’t know what to do anymore. So frustrated!
