Man AD I'm sorry. I remember you, we both joined this sight at about the same time.

I feel for you during this time. My thoughts are with you.

A philosophy of mine that I tell myself when times were low is that "things happen for a reason" you WILL PREVAIL sir!

If you would choose to PM me about your kids ages I may have some things that I could send you for them if you so choose.

From a Hendrick Motorsports Brother In Arms

Don't let this curveball in life get you down hun. Just think of this unfortunate as a bump in the road. These people you are depending on right now are there to help you and your kids. Look at it this way though AD, there are people out there in the world that are not even fortunate enough to have a roof covering their heads. Also, not all people in this world are bad people. There are people that will help you get back on your feet hun. All you have to do is stay strong and be that anchor in the choppy waters for your kids. You will overcome this obstacle that has been thrown at you, we know you can do it.


WIth Love & Respect.

As my mom always says: "May you find a star to light your path"

I wish to add on to that... May that path guide you in the right direction.

Peace and love to you and yours my friend.

I just read through all the replies here, and it's most embarrassing to break down and cry in the middle of the library....damn you guys are awesome.
I was not looking for donations in any way..just the spiritual support I have always gotten from friends here.
We have clothing, food is provided at the shelter...and money is not an issue..it's finding housing that is the issue. Very hard where Iam.
I realize people have different perceptions of what a shelter is like and depending where you go, some are worse than others.
Iam so very lucky. This shelter is like a country club. My family has three private rooms. There is a playroom for my kids..a tv room..great food, and I can do laundry there, and shower there. We could be far worse. The shelter is better than the hell hole we were living in..believe it or not.
I applied for a place and will find out next week iF I can get it or not..it's temporary, but it will do for now.
SPARTAN...my dear friend...were I alone, I would travel your path, and not hurt me one iota. I stay at the shelter for my kids sake. Hang in there buddy.
To those that offered me shelter and/or funds..my gosh..I truly am touched...Ya'll are the greatest bunch of people here, and no wonder I keep coming back. True friends for sure.I'm like a tea bag right now...dip me in hot water and see how strong I get. When I first posted, I was in a very bad state of mind...needed to purge a lot.
There are lots of people to talk to where Iam...very helpful.
I love you guys..and you'll never be rid of me totally.
I'll check in on Monday..try to post on some other threads cause I'll be visting my son who has internet access.
HUGS TO ALL...

If that is the case, and you are able to travel. Consider Michigan, the employment is far from the best. But in effect, the housing market is dirt cheap and people who can't afford further payments are having homes repo'ed.

This creates a buyers market, and every where around these parts I see more and more houses for sale.

Always consider the options.

OMG! What happened! The last thing I read was you getting engaged to Lombozo!

Hold the phone!

Be strong AD, I have been there before and it's a hard row to hoe.

I'm sending my best wishes and thoughts your way.

So much i wanted to write here, and share with all of you. not sure where to start.
Iam a far different person than I was a few weeks ago.
Mentally and physically.
I have lost a good ten pounds and realized it when my belt can't go another hole, because it's on the last one. Another resident forced me to eat last night. Food just makes me sick to look at right now.
I have heard nothing about the place I applied for...and I need to look elsewhere.
To the member who said Michigan..you are correct, but I'm on the Canuck side, and that is where I may go. I had planned on it before stuff happened anyway.
Mentally, I think about how I got to this point, what I coulda,woulda,shoulda done. I think about the boxes of things I have in storage and how totally meaningless it is without a home to put it in. I feel newly simplified in my lifestyle,even though I was never extravagant to begin with. I tossed blame back and forth both internal and external, and cried enough tears to float my boat anywhere but here.
In the end it will only be the courage I find to keep moving forward that will get me to where I need to be. I just need to figure out where that is. I hesitate to trust myself, afraid of making a wrong choice again.
A lot of me is like my mom.She raised me alone,shunned help from everyone,and made it clear you keep your problems to yourself, and if you cannot afford something, you go without.
I flip flop between feeling good and bad.
I'm really getting tired of treading water here.

Don't feel bad about accepting help. Most of us are just paying back the kindness that was afforded us at one time or another; I know I am.

I know you would be there for others if the shoe was on the other foot. Right?

Just to openly let everyone know, that I found a home, and I can move in the end of the month or even sooner. Great place affordable, and not really too far away.
Thank you for all the support you guys have given me.

I'm also headed in this direction not by choice, but rather because of the shape of the economy right now. My UI runs out in five months and so far I've been putting resumes like a mad man, no calls have been returned.

It's a sad state of affairs for everyone who has lost everything because the TPTB and their relentless efforts to stay in office while they throw people out into the streets.

Good luck to you
