The economy is killing us here at the Zilla house, but we're trying to keep our heads up. I've found what may be a promising freelance opportunity, I'll tell you more when I see how it pans out, and hubby is looking into a business venture we can work on part-time together since he can't find a better job right now.

When I am on better footing, I'll be happily paying it forward to others who find themselves where I am now. Remember, half of all donations in my tip jar and 1/4 of the proceeds from ad sales will go to my friend Tlchimes who needs help getting a wheelchair and other medical supplies for her medically fragile but very special little boy.
