Got through another day. Got some understanding of the paycheck snafu but don't agree with how things are being done - by state law. Got an approved paystub and it looks like I am going to get my house. Went to the dentist and everyone was asking how Tom was doing. Very difficult to explain. I will get through it. I have an extraordinary family to help.
Met with Ken at the district office today. Very helpful and encouraging. Will go back to work in January - or lose my job. At least I am forewarned.
