Hard times...

It has been a rough couple of weeks here in Bellaville. As you all know, I have been horribly sick, and am STILL sick, and now my 5 year old has come down with it full throttle. My mom is STILL in the hospital, and every day she says she might be home the next day...but that has not happened so far, and it is a little scary, considering a bad chest cold is potentially fatal to her.

On top of that, it looks like my time here on the internet is short. For the last year I have had no bank account, yet my ISP only accepts credit and debit payment. For most of the year the woman I was webmaster for paid it, as part of our arrangement, but she decided to do away with her website and therefore our partnership came to an end. Since then, my best friend has paid it for me, which I am grateful for, but hard times have fallen upon her as well and we can no longer do that. It makes me mad at myself however, because the damn bill is only 11 dollars a month, but because we do not have bank accounts anymore I am stuck. I had a pay as you go debit card after that, but the monthly fees for that piled up and it ended up costing more to keep the card active and put money on it than it did for my internet per month. So it looks like I will be without for the next 3 months or so, until income tax time.

I am really bummed though...all of my friends are online, my blog, my entertainment, the 4000 things we find to look up or need to know more about every week...all depend on the net..and losing it has me more upset than I care to admit.

It is one of the reasons I have not blogged, other than feeling like death on a stick, was because I knew sooner or later I had to write this post and I was dreading it.

So after Thanksgiving, chances are I will not be around for a while. Unless the Pay Pal fairy visits, or some divine intervention, but I don't think that will happen lol....

In case I do not get to blog again, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. Stay warm, and safe, and be happy. I love you guys....

Oh no!! =( I was just thinking about you and your mom last night, wondering if either of you were feeling any better.

The only way you can get internet service where you are is through having a bank account? Is it that you have no local providers? I'm a bit of a dork when it comes to understanding how things work in the tech world but, it seems like someone out there should be able to come up with a different suggestion for you! hmmmmm Shoot me an e-mail over at Silver Moon maybe?

I am so sorry to hear this lady! I really hope you get to feeling better soon and I really hope the internet problem is fixed because we will all miss you so much!

Well that just stinks, Bella. I hope something works out for you.
:( Surely, there must be a solution to this problem.

I do hope you and your mom are healthy again soon.

And I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving as well.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. My thoughts are with you and your Mom to get well, and to the little one.

I hope you return, soon. Will be thinking of you.
