HALP! The Shrew Needs to Move!

Here's the deal. I am moving over 900 miles at the end of the week, and my freelance writing has been seriously impacted by the packing and other things involved with such a major move.

In short, I'm dead broke, and I have to be out of my farmhouse attic apartment by the first. The money is simply not there. I am desperate and afraid I'll have to store all of my things to come back for later. That's how bad it is.

Help me. I am your friend, and PayPal is my friend. $1, $5, $20, whatever. Anything. Please.

Once I'm settled, there will be goodies in the mail for anyone who has sent me anything. Post cards, jewelry, small pretty things, some token of my affection and gratitude. Just help me get myself and my bed and my desk back to home.

Also, I get that people are broke. The economy sucks right now, and we're all feeling it. I'm just reaching out because I don't have other options. I also appreciate all the moral support and soul-love that has been coming my way. Thanks to everybody who has expressed concern and sympathy. I love you guys too.
