Yesterday was such a lovely day, in the beginning.
Then I made a telephone call, and another, and another…
I had to pursue the process for the government grant for our furnace. The reports were done the second week of January, and we had heard nothing, and the the website indicated our account was not in process.
So I called the assessment company, and the government granting body. I got different answers from everyone I talked to. Apparently the bankruptcy of the original assessment company is causing issues and we are in manual review for the next eight weeks. OR the government computer program can’t handle that we had an old air source heat pump and so it has to be processed manually. I don’t believe anything they tell me anymore, because the story is always different, even from the same people in subsequent calls. I will leave it eight weeks and call again.
The whole thing stressed me out. The grant money is needed, and it might never arrive. We will hobble along without it. I am frustrated, and disgusted with the whole thing, but have to carry on.
For now I am assuming we will not be getting the grant, and will apply myself to ensuring our financial survival.
So today I began the process of acceptance, that this grant thing is not going to work out for us. Once I have accepted that, I can calmly move along with monitoring the process, even though it seems hopeless. I can also move on to formulating financial plan B, C, D… whatever it takes.
I’ve had enough this government grant insanity for now.
