rain rain rain rain rain rain rain
the streets were all rivers this morning as a soft steady rain gently pummeled the pavement. i had a breakfast date with a friend that i had to cancel--after trying to make it through the flooded intersections and finding huge traffic jams on the main streets, i opted to turn around and go home.
sam, my kitty, has some kind of big problem with his hind end. he showed up friday night, unable to walk, and i've nursed him with kitty morphine (torbutrol) and colloidal silver all weekend. he's improved gradually each day, and i hope to avoid the vet's office if possible. i can't afford a vet bill right now! i kited a check to my landlord saturday, and will have to empty my business account to cover it.
and i just got a cancellation for tomorrow from a couple of disability clients whose SSD check hasn't come yet. i give this couple an insanely good deal b/c they are on a limited income. another regular client has been out of town for 2 weeks, and i'm really missing those checks!
my bottom line has disappeared. meanwhile, i am facing a mountain of debt myself--i won't say exactly how much (but at least it's under $20,000).
maybe i should apply for disability. this past weekend i truly felt as though i was losing my mind. relationship & finances in the crapper, and then sam getting hurt as well. that seemed like the cruelest extra.
i do keep giving thanks for the things that are working: my car, my health, my community of friends, my wonderful son, my doggy companions.
and, of course, the blogosphere....
