Minus 45 Days to Go: Still no job, More Spring Cleaning

With the help of a friend from Akron (thanks!), family (thanks!) and a couple of odd jobs (thanks!), we are surviving, but I am at 65 resumes and counting and still no ongoing situation. We still need money, so another round of spring cleaning is up on ebay. Rent is due in 19 days and I have no idea how we will pay it.

Also, the van is still for sale. We have come down in price. We are still willing to deliver in a 300 mile radius of Las Vegas.

If you are interested in any of the items below, but would rather not go through e-bay, we can stop auction on any item that has not reached its reserve and sell direct to you, so drop me an e-mail (pattie_thomas [at] yahoo [dot] com).

Thanks for any support you can give us.

For the record, I really hate this process.

But it is a process. I am willing and able to work. Carl is working hard on his new business and making great progress.

I find this whole thing so frustrating. I know there are people worse off, but I hate being so close to the edgoe of being one of those people who is worse off. I feel like I am just shouting in a well at times.

Having said that, I believe something will break sometime soon. We have lots of irons in the fire. Something has to give somewhere.

I still need a spare miracle. If anyone has one to give, let me know.
