After that snark, I felt like I should share this to show that I try not to be a dick at that same support group site. A few minutes ago, I got a notification of a new message [addressed to me, not a community there].

I saw in your post you recommended free counseling in the tucson area. How do you find them? I desperately need counseling, but I'm down to the dollar with my budget. I live in Wa state, don't know if you could point me in the right direction.

Because they listed a city in their profile, I kicked '[city name] WA mental health free' into Google and got a social services page on a website for their county, enabling me to quickly give them contact information for their county mental health information & referral service, a sliding scale fee clinic, and a displaced homemakers program.

I have Google juice to spare, but I'm sleepy and going to bed now. My kitchen smells like freshly baked bread because I finally remembered to get the breadmaker going. Tomorrow we're going to hit up the dollar store for squash [1] and bananas to start making der quick breads. I plan to take a couple loaves of freshly made banana bread in for Laurel's class snack on Monday. Also, I love me some banana bread thawed and rewarmed in the oven sliced and gently dabbed with butter. Mmm.

1. Every week our local 99 Cents Only has a different selection of produce. a few weeks ago there were 5 lb bags of russet potatoes; this week there are a ton of spotted-ripe bananas and variety bags of squash. One note about buying food there: the frozen food is generally a subpar value (except for the frozen whole ravioli, which is awesome) and I wouldn't touch the packaged meats. (Besides, if your budget is so tight you're thinking about buying hot dogs at the dollar store, go to the Wal-Mart Supercenter and get the package of 36 turkey hot dogs for just over $3. It's a better unit price with fewer mystery ingredients.)
