  •  Well, today got interesting. (9+ / 0-)

    In the Chinese curse sense.

    My father in law's brother came over today and announced that we were to be out of this house in thirty days. Dad is going into a nursing home, and the house is going to be sold.

    We have no income. While we do still have a place to go, we can't afford to pay the back bills and turn the utilities on. I can handle being without heat and lights, but water would be an issue, and of course one can live without the internet, though not happily.  It is likely that Tom will turn the cable internet off here at the first of the month to avoid paying any more than he has to, so I may drop off the radar then.

    Bear is looking for work, I'm looking around for part-time gigs that I can manage with all my issues, and we are hoping for a little miracle to happen, quite frankly, because the time frame is damn short to pull all this together.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
