When it rains, it pours.

Some of you know that I've been dealing with a couple of crises of late dealing with medical problems in my family. I try to roll with the punches, I'm not the only one going through problems in real life, we all are, but sometimes everything accumulates into a giant snowball and runs you over.

The other day my land lord knocked on my door with an itemized list of partial payments for rent over the last couple of months, including a date when he needs payment in full. Call me shocked. I wanted the ground to swallow me whole. I had no idea we'd only been making partial payments.

My husband is self employed. He lost one of his biggest clients a few months ago which was responsible for almost 70% of his income, but instead of telling me that he'd fallen behind, he tried to hiding it, hoping he'd make it up without stressing me out.

I found out. I'm beyond stressed.

My husband just found enough clients to make up for the big one he lost, but it's going to take month to complete the projects and generate normal income again. I can re-budget, sell a few things, trim our expenses to the bone even more than we live now. We can find a way to make this work, but I have no way to get out of the ditch we're in.

I talked to the landlord and he said if we pay him our back-rent, he'll work with us, he'll let us stay. I don't want to deal with courts, he doesn't want to deal with the courts, he just wants his money.

Guys, I've never done this in my life. I've never felt so suddenly backed in the corner with no way out. My mom can't help me, neither can my sister. My husband's parents are under water.

I'm desperate, so desperate that I've swallowed my pride and come hat in hand. This isn’t easy for me, but I could really use some help.

I have until June 1st to come up with $1,100 dollars. I'm juggling what bills I can afford to pay late and what I can do with my job, but it's so hard to come up with that much money in such a short amount of time.

If I we can get out of this hole, we shouldn’t fall back into it. I've crunched the numbers, I'm doing what I can so it won't happen again. Obviously I've talk to my husband about communication and honesty.

If any of you have something to spare anything,I would really appreciate it. I have a paypal account and I activated it. It can take all forms of payments.

If you can't afford anything, I understand. I've been there. Don't feel bad and don’t feel bad if you skip over this post.

Thank you for any positive thoughts, for anything. This was the hardest thing I've ever done.

EDIT
OMG. I got so many little donation and several really large ones that I made it. I have enough money. I'm so amazed and thrilled and just..OMG. Stunned. I took the button away.

Guys. You are AMAZING!!! I think I'm in this state of stunned shocked. I made my post and finally went to bed to take a nap and when I got up, but in the last few hours I got a flood of small donations and a couple very large generous ones (that I have verified with those people that they were not a mistake.)

I have reached the amount!!I have enough to pay my back-rent!! I think I might be shaking in relief and love and so much emotion that I beyond words.

My f-list, my friends, my friend's friends are the most amazing, generous people ever!! There was so much love, so many people helped out. All at once!!

You guys....I am so humbled and happy. OMG>

You don't have to donate anymore!!!!

Thank you!!
