Goodbye August !!! Update!


Hello, nearly 6 pm here on August 31. Nothing is resolved. The mortgage other than $30 that I sent her the other day as a show of good faith , remains unpaid. The email flurry has begun and I am VERY much relieved about the fact that August is almost history. Even in the very best of times, the economy is at its worst in Florida. September, not only brings relief weather-wise but the snowbirds start flying back into town.

Anyway, Ron handled the last email, repeated what I already wrote and told her we would be in touch on Monday. The day is not over yet. BUT, hopefully that will end it for the day. Mind you, I am not holding my breath, but I can dream anyway right?

Anyway, YEP donations are still needed and greatly appreciated!

Thanks for all your kindnesses and generosity.

God Bless…

Dire Needs and down to the WIRE again. … 4 days left in August …

bottle in the ocean

GOSH I really don’t like writing these posts. it’s getting harder and harder to do, but if I don’t ask, there is TRULY NO HOPE at all for us.. BOTTOM line WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING and WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!

I truly don’t know what else to say because there are just so many ways to say it but we have come so far in this fundraiser and we can’t afford to quit now.

We have four days left in August. Our mortgage remains unpaid. AND TODAY, our power could be shut off for lack of $71.00.

In 4 1/2 months we have raised $ 2,195.00. It has helped and we are so thankful for those who have come forward ( some again and again) to support us.

I truly don’t want to sound ungrateful! Because I am VERY GRATEFUL .

BUT we still NEED to raise another $805.00, like YESTERDAY !

Please help us reach this goal!

Donations are still needed and greatly appreciated!

Thank you ALL so VERY MUCH!

Have a BLESSED day!

9 days left in August!


And we still have some VERY real NEEDS that NEED to be met.

The hope is to raise another $1000.00 in this fundraising effort , and preferably this month.

More specifically —-

Our mortgage payment is due on the 16th of each and every month in the amount of $431.87 ( but we have through the end of the month before it is considered late) August’s payment has not been paid yet and as always, keeping a roof over our head remains HIGH PRIORITY!

There are other needs as well, which our outlined here

IF you’d like to help with a specific need or would like to pay directly to a specific entity, please let me know.

I’d like to think I was realistic in my initial goal of $3000.00. What I underestimated, was the time it would take raise it. As life happens, the NEEDS shift and change IS the BEST way I can put this! And as deadlines close in, the stress levels GO UP. I ask forgiveness in advance for any angst showing in my posts. 🙂

Anyway, we still really need your support and continued support.

Thank you ALL for the support we have received and continue to receive. … You all have been amazingly helpful in these four months.


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 )

You can also mail your donations. Our address can be found in the side bar.

I have some errands to run this morning but I wanted to get this posted BECAUSE it is SO very important!

Thanks AGAIN!

God Bless and have a wonderful day!

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!
