    When the boss told Anna she was sacked

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural.

    When the boss told Anna she was sacked, she burred her head into her hands and started crying. Through her sobs she asked, "How am I going to pay my rent? What am I going to eat this month?"

    The last sentence is possible, but I would prefer something like "How am I going to get by?"
