Hey, look, it's only been a month since I last posted!

Things are going.  I talked to a lawyer about bankruptcy.  I have to be caught up on my house payments before I can do that, which, yeah, eaiser said than done.  Sigh.  But once that's taken care of, I can go ahead and file.  To file, though, is going to cost me $1350.  I think that's one of the stupidest things.  Like, hello, I'm obviously poor and struggling, or I wouldn't be doing this, but charge me an arm and a leg anyway.  It's OK, I can just limp along.

I'm hoping I can get everything taken care of by July, which means, hopefully, by Christmas it will all be said and done.

I'm still looking for a new job.  I've had a few bites, but they both fell through.  So I just need to keep putting resumes out and hoping for the best.

My back yard is (mostly) finished.  Here's a picture to prove it!


I have tomato plants and marigolds in my flower box, and carnations.  Still trying to figure out how to get the dogs to stop digging, but I think it looks pretty good.

Nothing else really going on.  Oh, except I wrote a short Sherlock Holmes fic for Holmestice.  It's only 1000 words or so, but it's the first time I've really written anying in a while.  I'm hoping it's just the first of many.

Take care everyone!

Thank you, my friend, for always being there for me.

The garden looks wonderful and very inviting (mine is a tangle of vines I will have to hire someone to rip out before we can plant anything - but the front is a random and happy riot of flower just now!). *HUG*

Thank you! I spent most of Saturday pulling Chinese Knotweed from the rocks and spraying weeds. I never realized how many weeds there are!

I hear you about the bankruptcy proceedings. And of course, the lawyer will insist on getting paid up front, too. But if you can get past that hurdle, it'll help you get back on your feet, so hang in there *hugs* And yay for writing!

This is probably one of the most stressful times of my life, baring the time I was in the Army and in a mental hospital. I think, honestly, I'm not too far from that point. But I know if I can just keep holding on, it will get better.

We have declared bankruptcy twice over the last 40 years. Both times the lawyer was good about working with us on getting paid. They know that if you have the money you wouldn't be doing it.

It is really sometimes the best and only choice, but it is never an easy decision. Only billionaires can laugh them off.

Try sprinkling some cayenne pepper among your plants, which should discourage digging.

((((hugs)))) You take care, too, dear!

I hate that I've come to this, but I honestly can't think of another way out. I just hope I can get that dang house payments up to date and get this taken care of. Ugh.
