No Money, No Water!


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,

– Joyce.
