Saving (my mom) money, possible side job, and contest help

August 19th, 2015 at 08:55 pm

My mom's AC broke last week. She definitely doesn't have the money to fix it, but my brother suggested she could get a window unit since it gets hot here in August/September. Before she asked me for money for one, I went on freecycle and posted for it. Lucky enough, someone had it! It actually was a woman I'd gotten a shoe rack from before. My mom is really grateful for the cooler air at no cost.

I also reached out to a woman who posted on Facebook for a mother's helper. The pay would be $100/week for morning drop-offs. DF and I could definitely use the money, so hopefully this pans out.

The last bit of news is a request for help. DF and I entered a contest for our apartment company. Our entry is less focused on why we love our home and more focused on us, but I'm hoping we can get one of the vote prizes ($500). If you read this and have a minute or two, we'd appreciate your vote (bonus - you'd get a much more personal look at us). The contest is here:

Text is and Link is You can actually vote once in each of the various browsers on a device, but we'd appreciate even the one vote!! Our entry will most likely be on one of the first three pages and is titled DJ - Fairchase. The video screenshot is pictures of us playing pool on a green background.
