*sigh*

Our heater started right up this year. And then stopped a few days later.

I just found out that fixing it will cost more than $1000. Replacing it would be smarter in the long run, but would, of course, cost even more.

And I still don't have a permanent job.

If this had happened last year while I was on unemployment, I would likely have qualified for some help in paying for a replacement. But as it is, even with the week off and 3 and 6-hour work weeks last month, since I was getting some unemployment during those weeks, I'm pretty sure I made just enough over the last three months to not qualify.

I hate asking for help. I'd much rather pay my own way. But aving reached a point where I was willing to ask for help, finding out that I can't get it is depressing.

And to top it off, my laptop computer turned itself off at lunch while I was writing an article for a EMG zine, even with the little fan thingy underneath it whirring away.

Ohhhh, not good. :(

But your post reminded me that I intended (and forgot) to give you a story donation.

Thank you!
Thank you!

Remember, you can vote in my poll about what to write for NaNoWriMo this year, since I haven't decided what to do yet. But people's votes and comments are helping me to consider the issue.

:( I live in terror of the heater or the a/c failing, so you have my deepest sympathies!
