One more thing

More bad news today. I work for the state and although we must continue to work, we will not be paid until the budget is settled. For most of us that live from pay to pay, me included, that unfortunately means that we will quite possibly be living without gas, electric, water, phone, cable, and may loose our cars (the means to go to work), let alone food.

Then to top it off, the house has to be completely re plumbed. Joy of joys.

I have to come up with $2400 in taxes before August 31, and paychecks will stop with the first pay in July.

But it could be worse...at least I am still employed, and I 'm healthy, for the most part. I have a great daughter, good friends , (all in the same boat). For the most part, I am trying to stay positive, but I need to vent.

My daughter is 2000 miles away and they are no better off, and I can't help, and that is what hurts. I would love to be able to help them out, although she won't hear of it. But I can't help feeling like the world's worst mother.
