 in response to TAqua24...   Hello, My heart goes out to you. I know the feeling when you lose someone you love and that saftey net all of a sudden is no longer there. I went through a similar situation when my mom passed away. I too at the time was unemployed although I do have a family a husband and grown children but it is not the same. That saftey net the totally unconditonal love.
I will keep you in my prayers. God hears for I was unemployed for over 13 months and have now found a job going on my forth week of work now. My husband is layed off too but he is approved to go back to school for retraining. Keep the Faith. Never no matter what ever give up.
God Bless you

Not sure exactly what this is for but been needing someone on the outside to vent to and get a different view on the situation so here i go:

Well life is not working the way I planned it, and yeah I know that life always has its twist and turns but life right now just sucks. Thats the best way I can put it. I lost my backbone, job and I am going to lose my home(family safehouse). The reason I call it a safehouse is because it was my grandmothers' home. Not only was she my nanny(what the grandchildren called her) but she was my backbone and a home for family when life sallowed you up and spite u out...lol. Losing her meant so much on so many levels. Not only did it give wake up calls it gave no more escape goat when things went sour. It took me awhile to get myself half way together and I owe that to my nanny but now that she is gone im facing issues Ive never had to face before and Im more lost, confused, pissed and aggravated with myself then Ive ever been. I say this because a year and a half ago I moved in with my nanny, she had been sick for awhile. I was there to help her but also get my stuff together. I end up taken her position it was a good job paid nice, but walking in ther door there was issues on were the business was going. I find out about a meeting just so happen because the office manager never keeps things in order before I was suppose and a week later was approached about it by one of the doctors. I understood exactly what was going on and understood why they decided why to just have the office manager handle the job. it was a mutual agreement...which I found out the hard way is the wrong thing to put on your unemployment claim... HA just my luck...so the first week of March I was no longer needed at the end of the month. Well I had a month and two weeks and I thought thing would work out. I started with faith, but no luck with the job hunt but I knew I still had some income for now and savings... And then...My nanny passes....and things got a little bit blurry. Not only did I lose a huge part of my heart and soul....I got the biggest wake up call... I am now unemployed, my car will be shut off in about 24 hours, I have no money and I dont know how long I have left in my home....I have faith though that things will work out though, what else do you have when you can only control so much around you. Im in school, one thing I can control in my life since its online, library never turns anyone away if my wireless connect doesnt work. I try not to let this get me down but honestly sometimes it breaks my heart that Im jobless, broke, and damn near homeless. I know I could be in a worst situation but this feels like my worst and isnt that at times all that matters?????

 in response to Starshine...   Yes I agree it is never easy when one loses loved ones. When my dad passed I was 21 and my son was nine months old at the time. Mom was 54 at the time and I was there for her the whole time. We were very close. I had to teach her how to write out checks until she got the hang of it. She couldn't drive because of her epilepsi so I drove her where she wanted to go. She became very dependant on me. Although at the time my brother still was living at home with her but he wouldn't do nothing at that time. But later after he got married then he helped out a bit more. Him and I became very close now. When growing up we used to fight like cats and dogs all the time steady. I mean not just verbal but we got physical too but now all that changed. He grew up. Took him awhile but I love him dearly.

 in response to Starshine...   Yes at first for me too was alot of running around and phone call making but now it is settled down. Am pretty sure the accountant can take care of it for me. I still have to go and make arrangements to finish the last date on my parents tomb stone yet. I think she paid for it all when my dad died so matter of going and have them finish it.
Love and hugs.

 in response to positive thoughts...   My apartment in beach was clean but small. Not enough living room space. And mom's was okay till the shed leaked and I had to mom things in tubs in her room then it was a mess. The biggest mess is the flyers 3-4 times a week . Pain. I remember going through the deal of having someone due mom's taxes and maybe it was Cathy's tax man. I just know talk to attorney and lot of running around.
love you

 in response to Starshine...   Oh thats nice of him. My house isn't spotless wish it were but not dirty either though. Sometimes too much paperwork but am handling that pretty good now. Still have to find time to drop of my income taxes to get done yet and have to find a way to do moms. Government sent paperwork to old address or something for have not recieved nothing so am going to tell accountant we will have to estimate up until August last year so wont be much. I will have to go by her 2009 for she had same income except for only up to 8 months then she passed away and I canceled everything and told government of her passing.
Love and hugs

She can clean house and hers is spotless but I am afraid she does more than that my friend say my friends dad is very old and in hospital but okay.

 in response to Starshine...   Hello, Yes with alot of patience and alot of prayers and Faith things are going very well. It is getting better alot better. It helps alot when I don't worry and got rid of all that. One day at a time.  I had a blast at work today.  The machine broke down and we had to do a little crop work in greenhouse until they got the machine running again well we have these buggies with wheels on in the rose so we could reach top of wires.  Anyway I got mine going and wanted to move a little bit further and that thing went so fast LoL  thought was going to fly off that.  Everybody laughed at me they said if only they had a video on my face reaction.  Boy did that thing go in wrong direction and I wound up right where I started from.  It doesn't have brakes.  You control it by pulling yourself on the wires.  Of course I couldn't grab the plants for then they would of flown down.
Love you.

 in response to Starshine...   Hello, wow that is alot of money just for loaf of bread. I pay 1.69 for the cheap kind. Here there are alot of people that go to Buffalo to fill up their gas tanks. I don't cause by the time I go there and come back not much savings.

I hear you when you want to do laundry and have to wait. I remember when was living in apartment I wanted to do mine but lady from upstairs was doing hers. That was a while back now though. My dryer is 25 years old now and still working pretty good. Although when my son was still living here he turned it the wrong way and broke the dial on it so I have to guess where the setting is at. I figured it out ok though.
My son goes back to work on Monday. Strike is over lasted for 3 weeks and they struck deal with owner of company and got most things they wanted so that worked out for them. Instead of them getting only four year contract they got for five now with 50 cent raises per year and still have their benefits so they are happy.
I wonder what will happen pretty soon cause in a couple of weeks we have an election coming up. Right now we have the conservatives in I wonder who will be in next. I know I don't want a minority government.
Love and hugs

it is very touching and without a doubt something to behold and savor, the togetherness of those who might not know one and other. yet share a common cause[SURVIVAL]. we all need each other in ways we might find frighteneing, or deniable at the very least. still we all must carry on. without the help of us all? we will surely parish. my personal feelings are? that, thou we lack the audasity to singlely stand alone. together we have the power, to overcome the greatest obstacles. like it or not? we all need each other. unity. you know? stand as 1. we're allowed the basics of life. if we were accustomed to that? we'd all still strive for more. it's too bad about,amounts we would consider, are nowhere near our expectations as to losing more than just the basics. watch your backs, friends. the middle class inuendo i read earlier? the upper class is on the low end lately. poor has changed to NEEDY. who doesn't know the needy? we're all in need. of drastic change. refuse. refuse to continue on our current path. it's your right. sit and do nothing, for one single day[in mass], and watch the need for your services. significance would be looked at in a different manner. wouldn't it? just me. trying to make sense of this ever screwed up affair, we all know of as life in the big city[i prefer country]. lol and haha to all. iams only bitchin as usual. but for ever broadening good reason. i love you all. i wont a picnic. and that ain't to much to g-d-damn ask. now is it? sorry. love ya. C-ya. ozzie says a big OW. hey. ozzie for president. how could he do ant worse. HAH. love you also peachy. too many bud[weisers]s. bye[for now[can't get rid of me]]. I'll be back[aint goona do it]
