A Hand To Hold  
And the money issues with my family have hit rock-bottom. I try not to bring up this sort of thing here on LJ, but when it comes to them pawning things without telling you to buy groceries, you just have to ask for prayers and good vibes. My dad has been trying for over a year, nearly two, to get a job, but when you've worked thirty-five years in the same job and got screwed over by your own company due to your age, what can you do? Not young enough to fight for the jobs that pay the most, but to old to officially retire. But he's out there trying and not getting a break at all. And my mom is working two jobs, one of which may not be available much longer. Boo is working full-time, but she's not making enough to keep them afloat on her own. This is not to add that unemployment isn't going to cut them a check now for eight weeks because Dad tried a job for two weeks as a courier that ended up costing him more than it paid. It was just costing too much to do. I'm going to need to start trying to pull aside extra money to help.

And that's the real reason that I've been so distracted lately. There it is. Between work and this, I'm lucky to be keeping my head above water. It's been a struggle to keep the Muses fired up because I spend so much time trying to run from all of this.


All I ask of you, my beloved F-List, is hopes and prayers sent out and as much good vibes as you can spare. And I'm sorry for dumping this on you guys. I just need a hug.
