Urgent: Your Help Needed to Keep Us Fed and Housed

New posts below. Thank you to everyone who’s donated so far! We’re close to being able to make rent, but still need to make the car payment, phone bill, insurance, and food. My check for blogging won’t be here for at least a couple of weeks, so we’re stuck. If you can, please chip in. If you can’t, please share widely. Thank you!


The best laid plans o’ cats and dames have again gang aft agley. That lovely commission job we got? First paycheck was clothes. There has been no second paycheck. Needless to say, I’m back on the job market. But I haven’t landed a new position yet.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, my check for Rosetta Stones hasn’t gotten here this month. That’s a huge chunk of the rent missing.

Misha and I desperately need your help to keep us both fed and housed, plus make the car and insurance payments. So if you’ve got a bit to spare, we’re eternally grateful!

And you’ll get perks! Delicious perks! Here’s what you get with your donation:
