It's been a year exactly since the last time we were able to make a mortgage payment on our home loan. I remember terrible stress of a year ago... lots of friends and family coming to our rescue through April, when some relief came in the way of unemployment benefits for Rick... we could keep utilities on with that! And, R.J. finding part-time work at Barnes & Noble last June was a godsend... now we could keep the car and buy more food.
With foreclosure eviction looming, I'm now trying to wrap my head around the fact that this house needs to be sorted through... get rid of stuff, donations of clothes and books mostly. Also, it needs a thorough cleaning. That's what I'm doing now, dusting and scrubbing areas that have been neglected over this last economically depressing, spirit crippling year.
