One of my auctions now is at $141, so that will be enough to pay our insurance and maybe water bill...I still have to come up with $100 for Directv or they'll shut it off...and when we bought the TiVo we had to make a 1 year commitment, if it's turned off they'll charge $150...can't have that now, I got to have my TV or I'll go nuts! So anyways, at least I have a little joy to share. Next round of worrys is house payment and power the end of July and we're starting to run out of food now

Good for you honey! Keep on selling! Do you have a garden? Does you chuch have a food bank? Is there one you can go to?

I know you will find a way to survive! At least you still have the internet!

Yes we have a garden, although nothing's ready yet...we have watermelon, cucumber, corn, potatoes, tomatoes...I think that's all. Maybe peppers too, I can't remember for sure.
Jerm really just brought home a bunch of applications to fill out...one job I hope he really gets is only about 5 or so minutes away...it's called Bush Hog and they make farm equipment. A lady he used to work with knows the HR manager there and hopefully can help get him on! We really need something with insurance that pays at least $9 an hour!

Well, ya know, if you moved HERE, Jason is looking for an admin assistant. You could have a job where you sit at a desk all day and play with us on the puter. And make about $35,000 a year. Nothin' wrong with that.

Really, I am hoping that things get back on track for you soon. That is awesome about the ebay auctions!!

I have WIC already Lupe, and he went to the unemployment office Monday, but the lady said she didn't think he would get it b/c of the reason they fired him. It wasnt nice for sure.

For $35g! I'd relocate in a heartbeat!!

Seriously, what kinds of things is Jerm looking for? Did you try any of the online job serch engines?

Did they evaluate you for food stamps yet?

I know things will work out for you!

WTG on the ebay sale & good luck on the job search.

Everything will work out. We are in the same boat. And somehow or another, the Lord always provides.

Hmmmm... May all of your auctions triple in price (at least!) LOL!!!

Well when we went to get Medicaid they evaluated us for Food Stamps (it's the same building) and Jerm made too much, so we're supposed to take his Gross pay info from his last check up to DHS by next Wed and they'll reevaluate us again I think.

Becca, if Jerm can get ANY kind of job...take it regardless of the money. And while he is working he can try to find another job that pays more and is better. That is our attitude right now. Just get some money coming in.

I know something will have to give...or that is what we have been saying.
