For every door that closes...

Well, I was a bit worried, because the rent is going up again in July, to more than I can afford. But two things may take care of that for a bit longer. First, I may be getting my Medicare premium paid for me, I forget whether by the state or at the federal level. That means an extra $100 a month for me, once it kicks in. This also means I will be able to get Medicare part D as well, get my prescriptions paid for.

Secondly, I met someone who needs a place to stay and can pay $300 or more to stay with me. I've scanned her with my Mutant Power, and she's a good person. Homeless currently, but with a steady income. After explaining what happened the last time I let a homeless person stay at my place, she even offered to pay the $25 for a background check, which I didn't know was something I, as an individual, could have done. (Hell, if I find that the remainder after expenses is enough, I could even possibly get Internet at home again.)

Anyway, neither of these things is for certain yet, but it's looking hopeful. I think my prayers to Shao'Kehn and Kusahnjijahn are finally paying off. An extra $300 to $400 a month income would give me plenty for both rent and utilities, with extra remaining. Which is good, because looking for a new place and moving are even more difficult for me than looking for a job used to be, and I currently can barely afford toilet paper.

The rent has been more than you could afford since you moved in. If I'd known how high it was I'd have talked you out of the place.

That said, do be careful. Also, don't forget to let them know you are on a waiting list for Section 8 housing, so they'll know that you may be moving anyway in a few months.

On the plus side, this means we can get you moved more easily when your name comes up on the list. Be able to rent a van or something to move stuff.
