A wonderful, wonderful day

After waking up with what appears to have been some mild food poisoning, I took the day off work to recuperate. This turns out to have been serendipitous, because I received a call back from the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's foreclosure prevention program!

I was able to meet with them today at 2:00 p.m. and by the time I left at 3:15, we had a repayment plan in place with my mortgage company!

The nitty-gritty details are in a post at accessiblehouse.

The upshot, though, is that with the help of my extraordinary friends I am no longer in danger of losing the home Ericka and I share. We still have a little bit of money to make up, and if you can help with that, swing by the auctions at accessiblehouse or the donation button on the community's profile page. But first take this message of hope and thanks and spread it far and wide.

People read about our plight and from places as far away as Norway and Australia, they reached out to help with what they could. With donations of $2 to $500, with most being in the $20-$50 range, they raised over $10,000 to save the home of someone that most of them had never met.

If that doesn't give you hope for humanity, I don't know what will. Thank you. Thank you all.
