My life in the last 3 months
Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Hi, I am not usually the one to write a blog as I am not sure how it looks or if I sound dumb. but here goes!
I lost my job thru a difference of opinion back in mid October (not good). I immediately applied for unemployment and have since been denied. No money coming in. I went down and applied for food assistance (got $189.00 a month), cash assistance (got $200.00 a month) and medical assistance I am still waiting on that! I paid some bills with what money I had left including rent for Nov. and December. I now can not afford rent for January. I am going to apply for public housing to help me for rent. I have asked my sister for a loan and told her it would be short term and that I would pay her back when I got my taxes back. I really hope she helps me!
Jobs have I been looking? I apply for at least five a day! I have had one interview and was told they don't want people like me working for them. I cried all the way home and pigged out once I got there.
I tried to bundle phone, cable and internet and I just got the bill for $399.00 I was on the understanding that I would be paying only $99.00 a month. I
have made a rather hard decision to go just with my cell phone. No cable and no internet unless I can find an inexpensive internet provider.
I have also decided on taking an early retirement (I will be 62 in January) this works out good for me and if I can get into a place where it goes by your income I will be set.
I have found that spark gives me a lot of support and I am greatly appreciated so Thank you spark. By the way I have lost 20 pounds since mid October!!
