Things have been on the up and up around here! My ex-housemate is finally getting some cash together to pay me what he owes for his last month here, and I’ve been able to finish up some commissions that put much-needed funds into my savings account.
I heard back from Oregon Human Services about my SNAP benefits, and once I bring proof of income to their office and get approved, I’ll have food stamps that will allow me to vamp up my crappy diet (and hopefully improve my health). I also won’t be needing to spend so much money on food now, and can channel those funds toward other important things - namely, the mortgage, and utility bills.
The hunt for a new housemate has been ongoing. One dude came by to check the place out, but was rather presumptuous about my stance on marijuana, and kept talking about how “this would be a great place to set up a growing operation!” which omitted him from the runnings then and there (don’t get me wrong - It’s great that weed will soon be legal to grow in small quantities in Oregon, but fuck you if you think that you can waltz in here and set up an entire “operation”). Moving on.
Haven’t heard back from the folks who wanted to rent the RV space from me, but they are a busy couple. They put a deposit down and said I’d hear back from them in two weeks’ time. If that time passes and we still have no word, I’ll re-post the listing on Craigslist and see who else we can find.
