So, It's Come To This.
This, dear friends, is the last thing I intended or wanted, but I'm exhausted and out of ideas. On the right hand column, just above the 'Followers', I have added a 'Donate' button. (Just typing this makes me queasy)
Like most of us, I have been greatly affected by the economy. What it looks like for me is that for the last 18 months, while unsuccessfully searching for alternatives, I have been trying to subsist on a part time job. Well it's finally catching up to me. This morning, in a brainstorm, I contacted the Unemployment office to see if I could get an 'under-employed supplement', only to find out that because I gross almost $270 per week, I was ineligible. Gross, indeed.
I don't know if I'm foolish or wise, but I remain entirely hopeful. I know things will turn around, and I'M NOT GIVING UP! (I'm told the Universe is receptive to all-caps) Meantime, if you can spare a few dollars, I'm thankful. Emarrassed as hell, but thankful.
