I feel you, anon. I swear to God, everyone I know's life is just going to utter hell right now. Hope things get better soon.

Husband has doc appointment to be signed off work for stress. Still no check in the mail. Big financial mess seems more likely to have been caused by illness than malice. It's raining. We have Duct Tape ....

Dear anon

sorry to hear about your troubles, truly I am.

I wish to weigh in regarding the leak / camping / getting the fuck out of dodge.

A leaky domicile, camper, caravan, tent, etc. *s u c k s*. No question. I wear a necklace with a pendant I got at the end of The. Most. Epically. Rainy. Camping. Trip. Evar. Yeah, no, really. It was wet when we left the parking lot, wet all the way there, wet on the hike to the campsite, wet all night, wet all the way home. It was the only camping trip I ever went on in twenty years of camping with the Scout Troop that was cut short due to weather.

It's now regarded as a badge of honor, "Oh, you were on the trip to Shi-Shi Beach?! Duuuuude!" A brotherhood, albeit a wet one, was forged.

I don't know. I've been wet on outdoor adventures. Mostly it sucks. Sometimes, good can come of it. I hope you can use the time, and duct tape, to escape the rest of the shit-splattering "back home". Use the time away for what it can give you, even if it's wet.

I hope for the best for you, truly I do.

Anon - is this tent-like portable habitation or aluminum? If aluminum, you might try epoxy to plug things up.

We're back. Although there was a little rain the accommodation didn't leak and we have helpful suggestions to add to the pile offered by Dwellars. We can solve that one moving forwards and most importantly our weekend which we desperately needed was great!
Husband is still being jerked around. I'm still scraping him off the ceiling/floor alternately.
The financial mess is more like $10,000 and definitely illness related. After a meeting of trustees we have a plan that involves everything from dumpster-diving to massive anonymous donations, and a lot of hard work. Also a plan to help the employee concerned. Fingers crossed everyone!

More fucking cancer.

As I sat at the score table at the water polo tournament we were hosting, missing beest, just after a co-team-parent who is living with brain cancer (and also happens to have been beest's GP) dropped of some refreshments for us scorers, another co-team-parent was pushed past the table in a wheelchair. I was shocked. More brain cancer. diagnosed just before beest's death, so no-one wanted to tell me at the time and it just kind of slipped along..... She has lost the use of one arm and is very weak from radiation and chemo an has more to go... What in the fucking fuck?
