Well....I've been given at least a reprieve from the Grim Reaper of Financial Death; I was able to get enough financial relief to at least pay my rent and cable/Internet for the month. So, I am back online at home away from the library censors.
I'm not completely home free, and I may face the same situation this time next month...but at least I'm in much better shape than I was a week ago.
So, for the moment, I'm back and ready for some major catch-up. Thanks to everyone here for your kind words of encouragement and support.
