Dire Straits

No, not the band, unfortunately.

It's the financial situation here at the Dazzle household. It's looking pretty bleak. We will be making some pretty serious decisions around here in the next few weeks. I don't know what will fall by the wayside, but it's likely we'll be cutting pretty much everything we can. The co-pays on the kids' prescriptions are eating us alive, and while it wouldn't be too big a deal if Rick had an income, it's prohibitive on just one meager teacher's salary. His "job" selling funerals and burial plots isn't really happening; he's working his tail off making presentations, but it's just not enough.

We're looking at whether we should seek government assistance -- something we are both absolutely LOATHE to do, for many reasons. But we may not have a choice.

I'd appreciate the prayers of my prayin' friends. This is pretty discouraging.
