Good news

Just the other day I received some good news.  I shall be receiving a grant to pay off our home equity off.   This should take off a lot of pressure.  I will let you know when this happens.

The help came from savethedreamohio   Everyone should check this out for their home state.

I just wanted to put a word of advice to you all.  If you want to apply for grants or any type of assistance, keep all of your financial records handy. 

When you apply for any type of grants or assistance, you will need to have these documents.  So dont throw anything away, and keep it organized.  THis will help get rid of any headaches and speed up the process.

I speak from experiance.   I have qualifed and applied for a grant through  I had to search out some of my past tax records.   I almost had to start the process over again.  If they grant me all I can get,  I will have my home equity loan and past due property taxes. 

By the way,  I could of gotten up to $35,000.   Don't give up and drive on.

hope never stops

Just recently we received news that several people want to sell our candles.  If all goes well we should have a major portion of the debt paid off before the end of the year.

We are also looking to get help from savethedreamohio.  by not filing bankruptcy it looks like we qualify for some help.

Have a great and blessed day.

On Dec 24 we were struck by another car and had our car totaled.  This has forced us to start buying another vehicle right away.  I was hoping  to be out from this debt so we could be paying down some other debts.  This should  just be setting us back for a little while.

Over time is way down.   It is a bit scary during this time.  If I can make it through the winter, I should have a lot of overtime to actually eliminate some debt this year.

We did have another set back recently.  Our hotwater heater was leaking and actually caught fire.  It went out  quickly, but now we will have to get another one. 

I still see the future with hope.  It will just take a lot of hard work.
