We are being hit hard
Our house is poorly insulated and we are burning too much oil. Our tank is almost dry again. We will need more oil soon. And maybe the heater is not functioning correctly, because it is using up about 2 times the amount of oil that it should. We spent 3000 Euros on oil in November, and now we are looking at spending at least 2000 Euros more. That hurts bad! We have been putting bubble wrap on most of the windows. Juergen put insulation in the basement today. He took the day off. And the toilet is backed up. We think the pipes are frozen. And in the house in Leimen the radiator also caused some water damage in the basement. It will take some weeks to dry out. That means a delay in renting/ or selling the house. We are out of money! We will now be going into the ditch! It's been such a bad news day! We need Gods help...we are going under and we need some help! We have tried to act as responsible as we can. But we feel like we are being kicked. I’m trying not to get too down. I’m trying to keep my focus on what I can do. But I feel really attacked, and we need answers and grace for an answer.
