things are just as bad here in the UK. it is scary. and its hard trying to hide your worries from your kids because they get anxious too. I just try and remind myself that we are still better off than a lot of people in the world and be thankful for the things in life that are free, but its not easy when another bill comes through the door!

For now,,we(DH &I) are doing good. The bad economy has not hurt us. We are actually getting a house built. We are taking advantage of the bad housing market. 2,,3 years ago, we wouldn't have been able to buy a new home this large. For the price we are paying.
But I do feel for all of you that are having a hard time right now.

Things are really bad here in Ohio and in Toledo for sure. We have a jeep plant and a GMC plant and they are laying off and letting go like crazy. My DH is job foreman for an awning company and has been laid off since Jan. I work for a local contractor and my hours are down until spring...so we are kind of freaking out. We are sitting on our income tax return like hens on chicks because we don't know when things will pick up for the two of us. I buy lots of canned goods, clip coupons, buy cheaper soap etc. We have begun having a cards/game night at my SIL house and we all take turns hosting. It is a way to have fun with fam and friends and not break the bank. When I get really down, I call my Papa who is 95 and was 23 during the great depression. Or I google pics of the great depression...just when you think you have it bad...man oh man just look at what those people went through.
