So we are about to begin another week with no job, no unemployment and no sign of a job in sight. Eric's been gone from his job for 7 weeks..things are just..well..we're alive, we're healthy ( good thing since we have no health insurance)..we have basic food..but that's it..

We had a get together last night..as we always do on Saturday's..this week we had a full house( well backyard)..it was a very nice distraction from the crappy crap . Of course today it was back to reality..I did Eric's filing for his unemployment online..and as always we get the "your claim is being processed" message..processes the dang thing..please!!!

We haven't done much schooling.. I have been busy getting programs ready for the studio's recital..and my heart just hasn't been in the learning.. We'll get back full force this week as by tonight the programs will be ready to go to the printer!

Let's see.. we've kept busy with free stuff. baseball games, downtown street fair, picnics with friends.. oh my brand new cell died..but it was replaced for free..Taejan broke my nose by accident..lovely and ouch...it now sit more to the left then it used to.. this have been up and down..ebbing and flowing..

We're trying to stay as positive as we can...Since I am not exactly a positive optimistic person..it's hard...but we're doing the best we can right? The toughest part has been not being able to get certain "basic's"..sigh.. I am glad my kids are so easy going and aren't kids that NEED things..

Wednesday is Eric's birthday.. luckily we don't exchange gifts anyway so not being able to get him anything isn't a huge deal.

So we're here..we're dealing, it's tough..I want a sign things are going to turn around..before we start having utilities and crap shut off... keep us in your thoughts and prayers please..

Are there any local churches or anything that can help pay your bills, like water/electric/gas? I know in some areas there are churches that provide these services for members and non-members. All they ask is when your back on your feet to make a donation to help others. How about food banks or other stuff to help you, so every penny you do have can go towards your house and van?

I'm sure you probably have already thought about those things and/or use them, but I thought I'd put the ideas out there.

Can your husband or you, do day labor or try a temp office? I'm not sure where you are but are there any local farms or anything that need day help? I got stuck in Tuscan AZ when I was 18, my car broke down and I was living in a tent. I went to the day labor office in the morning and picked up what ever jobs were available.. sometimes the jobs worked at night, but either way I was able to make $30-$50 a day depending on the job. And I had the potential to gain a job with the company if they liked my work! There should be places that offer temp work/day labor in your area, everywhere I've gone they've had them. There are places that offer job placement, and require a fee... they are a rip off, but they shouldn't be confused with the day labor places.

I'll keep you in my thoughts a prayers!

Alison, my sil's husband was out of work for 9 months. He finally has a job. They haven't paid their mortgage since FEB., no joke! They JUST got the foreclosure notice and the bank called and said they were putting all the payments on the end of the payments and to over look the foreclosure!

Miracles are happening! We must weather this storm like Americans!
