My daughter showed up at the Peer Support Centre today asking for money again. I told her I didn’t have any. She left kind of angry. When I got home, my husband told me that we had no water. I called the water company, no small feat considering my anxiety on the phone. They said that they had shut the water off due to a lack of payment. I told them I could pay the minimum amount online today. They said they’d have it on by 4:00. This was around 2:00. By 2:30, our water was back on. I’m so tired of all of this! Worrying about our daughter, worrying about bills. Now we’re into our overdraft on our checking account. I try to save that for emergencies only. Last month, we had to dip into it. This month, we’ve had to even sooner. We’re only a week into October, for Christ’s sake!
I just needed to let that out. I hope my daughter gets a job she applied for. She has an interview on Thursday. I doubt she’ll get it but she needs to do something to get her own income. Either a job or Welfare. We really can’t afford to support her by giving her money for takeout while we get our water (or maybe something else) cut off. Thanks for listening,
