Here's an email I sent out to everyone who has written lately and who included their email address. My friends have dialup and I didn't have time to go back and look up addresses for the others so am thanking all of you and updating here:]]Apologies for form letter. You'll understand why. I'll write more when I have time (or my own computer).
My computer is packed away and stored. I'm using
a friend's to catch up.
We're okay - just frantically trying to
find a place to live.
I've talked to the girls twice.
when I have more time. Househunting this
Briefly, the landlord told us we had to be out immediately and I called friends and sent my appliances, vital papers, and the computer to a friends house for safekeeping. We started frantically storing as much as we could.
By that afternoon, he's backtracked but by then it was too late. We're getting by, still packing, and will try to be out of there as soon as possible.
A Social Worker came by and said if he pulled something like that again, to call her cell phone. She was livid..
Anyhow, I've talked to the girls twice now. I won't try to see them until things are more settled. They're doing well but still not back in school which bewilders me.
I don't want to put much else out here (again to protect the girls) but I'm emailing back and forth to many of you and talking to some by phone.
Thanks to everyone. I'm totally amazed at the support. I'll be back online whenever possible but don't know when that will be. We started yesterday to send my computer back home and then decided against it.
Ray is doing okay still and I'm hanging in although for once I think he's doing better than I.
Thanks heavens for all of you and for the local friends who have rushed to help.
Have a good weekend and take care everyone. Hugs to all of you.
