A break from things breaking
« on: November 09, 2020, 05:38:52 pm »
So, in the last few weeks, I've added several thousand dollars to my personal debt and am looking at realistically at least another thousand or two more for needed repairs and replacements of a bewildering array of things that can't just be left un-dealt with...home, car, dog (survived the anesthetic after a rough night, but we're in "see if he improves over the next few weeks and maybe we'll need to run more tests" limbo), sewing machine, washing machine...I'm in the process of trying to refinance the house in a way that should help a little but that isn't certain to go through yet. 

I know there are people worse off, who would be, or already are, out in the street from facing all this kind of mess that I'm going through, but I really can't take much more before that's my situation, too.  So, my prayer is to find the means to deal with all these bills( and please, oh, gods, be done with the horrible surprises for awhile!) and that I am, hopefully, making the right decisions to not have to do this all over again before many years have passed.

Oh, ugh. (((Ashmire)))

That sounds like a job for the Remover of Obstacles, Ganesh; prayers being sent.

Ashmire, may the universe align to get you through this rough patch.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs
