Please contact hippiemombian if you have something for this family.
What is your family situation? We moved last month because dh was hired by a small rural fire dept. The day before training was to start, we received a letter stating that the dept had decided not to hire anyone afterall. There is no work in this small logging town during the winter, and we are 2 hours from the next town. We can scrape by on my part time wahm income, but I'm really not sure how we're even going to pay for heating fuel and food through the winter....let alone make Christmas happen.
Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Christmas
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) Chemical perfumes and scents, and pot smoke (items sent from a home where pot is smoked indoors could send me to the hospital. Very severe allergy)
