Sunday 'fess up...Anni's not feeling good these days

Hey all.

I'm being plagued by constant anxiety/panic attacks these days because of all the stress that I'm dealing with.  Himself is still without a job and all the bills are now falling on my meager paychecks.  I'm letting Himself use the laptop more, when he wants it, so he can do his job hunting.  We've got $20 to last us for gas for two weeks and a tank that's only a little more than half full.  I had $40 for groceries to last us for 2 weeks and now we're fighting to keep Twitchy out of our food because she doesn't seem to understand that our food is OUR FOOD.  We want out of here so bad, but we're so broke we're not getting anywhere.

To make it worse, I had to pick and choose what the most vital bills were to get paid.  This means my cell phone's been cut off.  Thankfully for Himself, our Nice Roommate is letting him use his phone as a contact number until I can get the phone bill paid and get them turned back on.  Otherwise Himself would be utterly out of luck for the next two weeks.

In the meantime, I've been working slowly on critiques for a new critique group I'm in as well as reviewing the critiques given to me on Only A Name.  Between the ladies in my critique group and KD Sarge, I'm learning where the weaknesses in OAN are and hoping to eventually get them fixed.  I haven't done much writing because I just haven't felt like I'd be able to get anything done.

Just some music videos to round out today's SFU.


  1. Sounds tough. Positive vibes to you and Himself. Hopefully things take an awesome change for the better really soon. You guys deserve it.

  2. May god be with you during these critical times!!

    Have faith!!

    with warm regards
