Is that I haven't got it all figured out quite just yet."
(h/t Colorado is the Shiznit)

I wanted, no, I needed to say thank you to all  the wonderful kossacks who helped me out last week.  I managed to hang on to my house for a bit longer, I still have electricity, and I have some hope.  (See my most recent diary for more info.)

I can't really do justice to those who helped me, not in a few paragraphs, but I am not lying when I say you changed my life.  What I thought was going to be a sort of "goodbye for now" diary quickly turned to folks asking how they could help.  And those of you that did help, you helped more than keep me from being evicted, you helped keep me sane.  You gave me hope where I had none.

I'll still be around only intermittently, and I don't know what lies around the bend, how I'll keep making it through, but I know that whatever happens, I am not alone.
Thank you, and bless all of you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
