    So, here I am fixing to deep fry some food, mmmm.
    I go outside cuz i remembered something, I began to work on my pool filtration, 1 hr later.
    I need a screwdriver, I open the front door, and black smoke billows out, I am a complete idiot!
    There is major smoke damage to 80% of the house
    I call the wife, I call the insurance.
    luckly the insurance guy says its coverd, they will only need 1000$ and for us to move out for a week or so.
    And this is all peachy keen, due to Me being layed off the weed before christmas 09, unimployement running out and gov. is voting on it, is what ive been told the last three weeks. yet there are people that my wife knows that has been on uneployment for 4 yrs plus, I have been a zookeeper for 10 yrs, you cant get fired and pick up a job right around the corrner, so Ive been going to school, Food stamps are taken away and the list goes on on on on on on on.

    I know my god has a reason, Idont alwasy understand but here we are!

    I have no idea.
    i remember my mom cooking chicken nuggets, then my relatives came, when my relatives got here I said to my relative Becky, '' wanna go play some computer? ''

    then she says '' sure ''


    after a while, we heard some screaming, we suspected it was nothing, later, we kept hearing screaming, so we ran outside to see what was happening, then, you guessed it, our house was burnt! luckily, we got the fire out, and the house [ and the computer ] were saved!

    Sorry for the trouble caused and damage already done.....as far as unemployment goes.....you should be able to go from your normal claim to an extension and then back to claim as each run out and as needed ask the unemployment office for an extension.

    Hope that helps and things get better soon.​

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, after all that has been going on I have been able to see the hand of God. Through insurance coverage we are now getting every room deep cleaned painted and possible new flooring. and all this two months before our new baby is to arrive! The wife and I have been dreaming of doing all this just never could afford it.

    But God knows what we need best!

    Oh By the way I love this site and all of you guys who are on here!

    Could be worse... you could have done all that while boiling water... like my aunt.
