News and other Things I’ve found interesting July 15th 2020

Finally got my first meal in 3 days last night. Fridge and cabinets are still empty of food. Obviously no damn luck or saviors who are going to use that donation text to resolve that problem. So I’m back to at least a couple days of water only.

Former other half still hasn’t dropped off more boxes to get rest of house packed. I still have no idea if I will have a roof over my head in a 2 weeks time.
