I found this email in my mom’s “Drafts” folder. It’s an email she never sent to me, from late January of 2010:
We/I only have until February 2 to declare whether I stay in this unit or try to find a smaller place to live in. I honestly don’t think that I can move again. When I moved here, I had several friends helping, and I cannot move all of my stuff alone.
Please let me know what you think.
I have to tell them soon.
Thank you for all you have done for me, and for all of your patience.
I love you very much. When I finish this letter, I’ll be going out to try to find a job. I want to try the unemployment office first because I couldn’t find it online the way I did in Gainesville.
I am hoping and praying that I will at least get some leads by going there.
