My blogging days may soon come to a stop very soon

It is with heavy heart to let you guys know that things as well as they were looking for us...just took a turn for the not so good. I'm not exactly sure when all this abrupt stop will happen...but I do know it's very soon....as in maybe mid February soon if not earlier. Our finances were just hit hard and I wont go into detail...but we are no longer gonna be able to afford internet service or anything like this for a while. $#!t...we can barely afford groceries sometimes! I'm honestly not sure what's even gonna happen after mid February. I see us losing our house though that's for sure...and with rents so high here...we may end up looking at a shelter for a while. You can't even imagine how hard it is for me to say this...but if I keep it in...I'll go insane. I can't even think straight right now...so if all this isn't making sense...then I do apologize. I've tried my best to help hubby with looking for a job...but I come up dry. I've tried selling my stuff...but nothing is selling anymore...with just a few things though that have sold. I'm sorry you guys...I'm just lost right now and don't know what to do or who to turn to. After my mom's passing...even my family left my side. I'll be honest in saying that I've lost my faith. I don't know what or to who to pray to anymore...I've just about prayed for everything and to everyone and everywhere. In the time I've written this much...I've already gone to vomit and cry. I need to compose myself though...much more now for my kids. I sure hope that this recent blow is just a bad nightmare and I'll be waking up at any moment now... Why do bad things happen to good people? I know a couple bad people...and trust me they're bad...and they don't have not one problem...why? I've been generous to friends in the past when they were in need...I'm always being friendly to people and give friends my heart. So if this is my "karma" coming back to me...I wonder where I went wrong. I don't remember doing anything bad to anyone. Hell...I'm just rambling on about something I'm sure you don't want to hear. I know I'm not the only one with problems...others have it worst...I just wanted to let you know what was going on in case you weren't to see from me anymore...or at least for a long time. I hope this deal can get better and I can take this post back...but in the meantime...I'll be on edge trying to sort things out.

Thanks for listening...and I'm sorry I have to lay it on you...yet once again. I don't blame you if you're tired of me...

Things that have recently sold will be headed out the door tomorrow with just one exception...I'll get that one out very soon. So if you don't hear from me soon...just know I either no longer have internet or...I don't know...but I'll find a way to get in contact with you.

Now I'm gonna go lay down and cry...

EDIT TO POST: To my design teams...I will be making my projects needed to fulfill my DT duties and I will email them to you... I'll contact you though if I do need time off or to resign if need be. Crafting is my only stress releasing outlet and if I DON'T stamp...then I don't know what will become of me.

Hi, i read your post from a link i got in SCS. I pray for you for things to get better.
It sounds like internet is a big part of your life. If you can no longer have it at home, have you considered using the internet at the library or if you got a laptop at a place with wifi. You can use a usb stick drive to upload anything from your home computer to the websites u need to from any other computer?
Just a suggestion, that way you could keep up with the DT's and your blog, and still do your creative stress releaving outlet.

Sammi said...

Oh Gabby! And so close to your/our birthday. I wish I was closer so I could be there in person for you. But please know that I am praying for you. I just want to give you a big ol hug right now. Wish I could do more.

Theresa said...

Gabby,

I am so sorry to hear this. I will keep you in my thoughts. I wish there was something I could do.

I would hate to see you go...the library is a great place to update blogs!!!

Take care darling.

Sonya said...

Thats terrible Gabby..maybe if you are able to get rid of everything other than groceries and regular bills you can stay in the house. I know how it is though and I hope you are able to stay there and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

Creepy Glowbugg said...

Wow Gabby, you really know how to jerk the tears right out of a girl! I am so sorry - life really sucks sometimes. Sounds like you have a strong and tight familia and that is all that really matters, no matter where you lie your head at night.

sweetpz said...

Though i don't know you personally, i wish nobody has to go through so much hardship that you have gone through...
It may seem dark and bleak at the moment, but things will get better! Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.. you do amazing work here and it would be sad to lose a talent like you!

Sam said...

Oh honey, I've been right where you are and it's the pits to put it mildly. My heart is with you as well as my prayers. Don't give up. There is a purpose in everything. Don't look too hard for it though or you'll go nuts. Just keep the faith. We are all here for you!

☼ Cheryl* said...

Oh Gabby :( What a terrible time.
We would be in the exact same boat as you if it wasn't for the benefits we can get in the UK. My partner was in a job he hated and got offer another job, so he told his current employeer only for the new employeer to void the offer. So now he is jobless and we are so far in our overdrafts we have about a months money to live on. We can claim benefits for our rent to be paid but it takes 6 weeks for them to give it us and by then I'm sure we'd not have anything.
I have no idea what we are going to do if he doesn't get a job in the new few weeks.

I REALLY hope you get some good news about jobs soon. I hate so much how money has to cause us so much stress and upset.

hugs xxxxxxx

Oh Gabby I'm so sorry to read your post and to hear of your troubles. Financial troubles are life's misery - but try (and I only say try cause I KNOW how hard it is) to not lose your faith - none of us can say WHY anything happens to any of us - only that everything happens for a reason even if we can't see it or may never know it. You will rise from this stronger than ever. It has been fabulous having you on the JUGS team this month - and we all wish you well - you are in our thoughts and prayers girl. If you did not get to play this week DO NOT worry about it - if you did we'll post you with warm wishes for a brighter future.

Thanks again for all your amazing and wonderful creations for Just Us Girls and ALL the bes to you in the future weeks, months, years.

HUGS and prayers.

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Oh dear Gabby. I will keep you & your family in my thoughts & prayers.
God Bless,

Lisa Kind said...

I feel the same way as Pam, Gabby. I think everything happens for a reason, and I'm praying you will make it through this a stronger person. {{{Hugs}}} to you and your family!

JenRaff said...

Gabby, I am so sorry your circumstances are so hard right now. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that you find faith that things will ultimately get better. Whenever things feel like they can't get any harder, somehow we get past it. Your blog is a huge inspiration and you mean a lot to many "friends" you haven't met.

Angela said...

Oh Gabby, I am so sorry for all the hardships you and your family are going through!! But please don't loose your Faith!! If the lord brought you to it, he will get you through it. And you and your family will be stronger!! He never puts more on us than we can handle!! Even if you think you can't handle it!! He makes us stronger than we evee thought we could be!! I just hope some light at the end of the tunnel starts to shine your way!! I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers!!
