We finally got moved into our new house. It is very small, but we have a roof over our head. In order to move, because the old rental company has our $2500 in deposits, I had to take an advance on my September paycheck. PC has been slow, because of all my moving, and I had shows cancel in September. I'm continuing to work to get those bookings. I need to stay active this month in order to keep my career sales. We had $0.00 to our name. My husband has been doing odd jobs for people so we can buy milk, cereal, etc. He has a friend he was doing work for that owns a hazelnut farm. He has gas on the property for his trucks. He let my husband fill up our car once and is letting him do it again tomorrow. He got $80.00 yesterday for a computer job, which was desperately needed. He deposited at 2 PM. At 5 PM, we get a call from the bank saying that there was a mistake in our account back in August! We had withdrawn all my money $300. Instead of coming out of my account, they took it out of someone else's. I recently noticed there was $300, but didn't think anything of it, because I had put PC checks in for a show. The bank tells us that they debited back the $300, which included our ONLY $80.00 to our name and we will owe them $200. Thank goodness they're not adding on overdraft charges daily until I get my check in September. I now have $0.00. When will we ever get a break? I never thought I would experience truly being completely poor. We use this word a lot, but don't REALLY know what it means, unless you experience it. Because I make good money "on paper", we qualify for nothing. We've eaten at our local soup kitchen, which is available 3 days a week. Last night, I went to a friend's wedding, and I was more looking forward to the free dinner. Tomorrow morning we're going with our neighbor to church to have an all you can eat pancake breakfast. When things are back to "normal" next month, I can see myself putting my money to good use. There are many more working poor out there than we can even imagine. Good news! My neighbor across the street, which invited me to church: her husband is unemployed and they are living on his unemployment. Well, that's not the good part, she's interested in the PC as a business. She's been going all around town, but with 25% unemployment in my county, there's nothing.
