May 15 came and went. My normal Social Security payment was made. My wife and I did receive the $2,400 a while back. As far as the EIDL goes, the best I can figure from SBA.gov is that I probably filed too late. On the second round of funding, they are only accepting agricultural applicants. As of 08 May, they had disbursed 3,009,934 separate amounts for a total of $9,833,210,000. My application was above 3,300,000,000,000 in number, so my best guess is that many, many, many small businesses applied too late. Oh well, knew going in that it might not result in any money.
On the good side, even though I have been turning down residential service calls, the calls that I've done for my "essential" commercial clients have resulted so far in my business being about as well as last year this time. I am thankful. Gave my wife her half of the $2400, put my half in savings to help later this year when property tax and home insurance come due.
Musically, tomorrow will be the second week that I play with our praise band in our modified online service. I went to the church yesterday and rewired my system to provide a single mono feed to FOH, after listening to playback of last week and noting that my bass was very low in the mix (not in FOH at all) and the organ was inaudible. Felt so good last week to be able to play again (yes, there were less than to people in the building and we did or at least I did maintain distancing). Feeling blessed.
