As many of you know, Eric was laid off for a week this last week, which means he won’t get paid for it. We thought he could get unemployment for the week, but they’ve denied him because he isn’t ‘unemployed’, which means, he doesn’t get that this week, either. Because of that, we have no money for anything–groceries, bills, nothing, and I have to ask if you guys can help us out again. I really hate to, but I don’t really have a choice, either. We don’t have the money to feed ourselves, not even a little bit, and we’re desperate. Please, if you can, we would truly appreciate it.

Hi, guys … Just wanted to thank you all for your support and kindness. Thanks to you all, we were able to replace the water heater, which was a huge relief to me. You guys are the best, and even just the moral support has been hugely helpful in getting to the point where I can write a little every day. That means a lot to me–more than anyone probably knows.
We could still use whatever help anyone can offer, though. Eric’s hours haven’t picked up any, and he’s due for another week off in just about two weeks, and while he will get unemployment that week, his job will slam him the first check he gets afterward (we just found that out the last time they did a shut-down) and they’ll double his deductions for insurances and all that crap, which’ll shorten his check about a hundred bucks, and that’s after the paycut that is unemployment for the week prior, too. Thinking about money makes me feel like just whacking my head against a wall, but the love and support that you guys have showed me has helped so much, and I wanted to let you all know how very much I appreciate you as well as the ‘get away’ that the forums provide me.
Thank you, everyone, whether you’ve just said a prayer for us, emailed us encouragement, or helped out financially. God bless you all!
With all our love, of course!!
