Laurel is home for the week before school starts, which so far means she wants to watch TV (I canceled our cable last billing cycle but it's still on) and complains about the lack of snack food. We'll both be relieved when school starts on Monday.

I entertained her and a friend in the pool for an hour and a half yesterday, which I'm still tired from but they seemed to enjoy. She's going over to that friend's house for lunch and to play Wednesday afternoon, providing I can swing it with my not-yet-booked appointment for rent assistance.

Speaking of the rent assistance, we /finally/ got the late rent notice today so we can finally apply for assistance. I am telling myself that this is the bottom, that things will start getting back to normal with his first paycheck in two weeks, but I'm still feeling a bit low yet.

I do sincerely hope that this is the bottom for you and that things drastically improve for you in the ways that you want. You're a strong woman - much stronger than me at this point. You deserve the best. I hope things get easier, or at least more rewarding. On the bright side, at least we will soon be rid of this constant heat and have a few months of reprieve.

I think it will work out. The agency I am making an appointment with specifically deals in short-term emergency assistance.

In addition, our complex does want to keep us as residents. Kevin's been here eight years and we are low-maintenance tenants. It's just been a bit confusing dealing with staff recently because ownership of the complex changed July 1st and all new office staff came with it.
