Hello GR lovelies!
In the interest of being completely transparent, I would like to discuss a little bit of private life. I hope I won't bore you to tears and I hope this doesn't come across as needy mcWhiney Pants. Anyway! Due to changes in insurance, we are losing an extra $400 every two weeks. I am currently employed at a base level retail position as part time, where in I may pull in $100-$250 a month after the Christmas rush. After careful budget re-adjustment, my husband and I, with our small family included, will have exactly $22 every two weeks to spare, or, $45 a month. This budget does include:
our groceries, cat food for 5 cats, birdfood for 4 birds, our power bills, mortgage, credit card payments and so on. We will not be starving, obviously!
But, this will impact this website in such a way: currently we have saved in paypal $63.76 toward April's $119.40 yearly Dreamhost cost. In addition, if we are to start using Chatwee (which at the moment has approval by 2 members -- please test it and give me your opinions
!) that is an additional monthly cost of $19.
Until I am able to find, and apply for a full time job, as my currently employment has no room or no will to give full time hours, my husband and I will not be able to afford to keep up with Chatwee and we are unsure which credit card we may have to pull from to pay April's bill.
I am aware how this post sounds, and that it does come across as begging, and I apologize for that, but at the moment, this is basically where I am as your admin, and this is the situation. If it takes GR another six months to move forward either in a chat room, an update, please be patient with me. I, as well as The Red Neck, are the only active staff members at this time. (Although we are looking for mods and fellow admins!)
Thank you so much for reading! All my love,
