tkdw_vlogs2017: (Thoughtful)
Don's brother Dave gave us 6 more mice tonight. There are 4 brown ones and 2 white ones. They're all siblings and very little, but old enough to be weaned. The white ones most likely won't make it, though. They're smaller than the rest and are just laying there. Their bodies are cold. They're really sick. Poor things. There's nothing we can do about it. I hope the brown ones make it.

Today we went to town so Don could pay bills and I could spend my monthly $16 in food stamps. I got some cereal, sandwich meat and cheese. Don got a little more food, like some bread, margarine for himself and meat, with a little bit of his disability check, and now that's it. The rest of the money goes to Gary Price for the balloon payment. We went to the soup kitchen after that.

Work isn't going well for Don lately. He went to work at Dan's Monday, but there was nothing for him to do even though Dan was supposed to make sure there were materials there for him to work with. Dan doesn't have things together and that's not good. I found out one person who ordered 2 spades got pissed off and canceled the order because Dan was taking too long to ship them. Don does all the work he can, but Dan doesn't do much. This should be Don's business, since he pretty much does it all. But Dan promised Don 40 hours a week and we really need that to make that balloon payment and it's not happening. If that doesn't happen we will be right back in the same boat we were before. :(

And then there's the car. Today Don found out it's all rotted out underneath from the salt and everything is falling apart. It can't be fixed. He says if I'm lucky it MIGHT last another year. :( Now is not the time for this kind of shit to be happening. I cannot just go buy another car. I'm not my dad. So this really, really sucks.

I guess that's all for now. I'm finishing up on laundry, I need to do the dishes, I already rode the bike, and I go back to work tomorrow. I've lost 5 lbs. since 4/20.
