It's been over a week.... and I guess you noticed that the other blog is gone....... here's what happened....
Adrian took the bus to New Orleans on Thursday night... he arrived early the next morning.... tried to sleep and couldn't... called me later to say that he was getting back on the bus and coming back home... and that is what he did.... he got back home on Saturday morning..... and he deleted the other blog without even telling me he was going to do it. So he's been aggressively searching for a job in the last week and has had 2 interviews... but so far no job. He can't get unemployment because he worked that week and a half in New Orleans and then quit. So we have absolutely no income... and no savings to fall back on.... each day that goes by sinks us deeper and deeper into financial disaster.
We have about a month left in this house before we have to be out... but we can't even look for a place to go until he gets a job. Sometime in the first few days of may... which is approaching fast... our electricity will be cut off because we won't have the $300 to pay the bill. We are also running out of money to pay our Chapter 13 payments and unless they are made our only vehicle will be taken away and without it he will have no way to look for work or get to work once he gets a job... so... as you can see we desparately need for him to get a job and fast. It will of course take 2 -3 weeks to get a paycheck once he gets a job... so things are not good...
Tomorrow I am applying for food stamps but I'm not sure we can even get them since he quite his job in New Orleans to come back home.... so we may be on the street soon without even our van to sleep in... and no food either.... we'll see.... I'm also going to start applying for jobs myself... one of us has to bring in some money somehow!
I'm still hoping that something great will happen soon... ei he gets a great job! Something really just has to happen.... right???? I try sooo hard to get through each day without thinking about it as much as possible or I just get worried and stressed and cry and can't sleep... the less I think about it the easier it is to deal with....
Yesterday we celebrated my Grandson's 3rd birthday.... we had fun at his party and it was good to spend time with all 3 of my Grandbabies. But last night Adrian and Steffie were making popcorn... you know how she loves to help cook!.... he had just turned off the burner on the stove and she was trying to get out of the chair she was standing in in front of the counter beside the stove.... she started to slip and reached out to brace herself and her hand landed on the stove burner instead of the counter... she has 2nd degree burns on all of her finger tips and the top of her palm on her right hand. We rushed her to the ER and they gave her cream and meds for the pain and infection... she will be fine... it will just take time to heal... and my heart breaks that she had to feel that much pain. She slept soundly last night and woke up with just a lil pain this morning... but is feeling great now after getting her meds again and she doesn't seem to traumatized by it... she's playing and happy as usual :)
Of course the financial side to that is... that her medicaid was messed up... again.. and we had to pay $70 out of our slowly dwindling pocket for her meds.... but she had to have it.... so that's what we did. If they can get it straightened out within 7 days I can get the money back... which we really need right now... so let's keep hoping on that one too. And even more so let's hope for her lil hand to heal up quickly and with no scars or damage to the sensation in her fingers!!!
