Wulf and I have made some really hard choices over the last three months to keep things going. We have sold things and accepted daily work I never thought we would have to do. Things are replaceable and we are not too proud to face what needs doing.
The most frustrating part is the waiting. Its not that Wulf has been denied unemployment, it’s that the judge has no real time limit to render his decision. It can be three weeks or it can be six months but by then we will have lost our first home, the home that took us 24 years to feel safe enough to purchase. Even after evaluating what we have left to sell we see no way of saving it. We NEVER do the minimum to get by, but effort and intent don't pay the bills.
Wulf and I have now received the suggestion from 8 different sources to start a gofundme site. I’m having a hard time putting into words why we are having trouble with this idea. We, in the past, have anonymously helped several friends and strangers this way so it’s not that we think it’s wrong to ask for help. I think it might be because we feel we have nothing to give back in exchange for that help, but I'm not really sure. If the judge comes through in our favor, which all the outside specialist we have consulted think it will, we will be ok but we are down to 26 days till the house is lost. We have gone through all the options. With a $1600 a month minimum just to exist, we are close to the end. We've gotten this far over the past 9 months because we are masters of frugal budgeting but its not been enough.
So here we are. Pride is swallowed and asking for help. If you would like to know what you can do to help here is the how. We have always kept our home as a repository of tools, refrence material, supplies, arms and armor, and a place for people to retreat to or turn to for aid. To keep that going we need your help. Anything you feel like contributing will go to keeping Wulfgard open not just to us as our home but to you as your resource, retreat and refuge. The funds will be put directly towards keeping the doors open. We just don't have anything left and the end appears to be looming near. The only thing I can assure my friends and family is that if our ship goes down it will be with a fight.
We have set our goal at our minimum cost of living for three months. It uncludes house payment, cost of utilities and 2 fillups for each car to get to job interviews and daily work we have been doing.
