  • Better. We're saving, we've managed to pay off a lot of debt, my husband just got a raise, his shop is busier than ever, I am almost done with school, and our son is graduating in May and has been accepted at the Ohio State University, and is going into the ROTC program with the Air Force! I do have some medical issues right now, but (thank God!) we have awesome insurance to help with that!

  • WORSE! DH got a $15k pay cut, and no bonus--both of which we had hoped to receive for our childrens special needs.

  • Better! My husband just got a raise, and two job offers that would each make about $20,000.00 more than his current salary!!

    We've also managed to pay off a few credit cards lately. Exciting stuff!

  • We were pretty pessimistic in this household before the election and still as pessimistic now. :)

  • For us, we're the same. But my husband and I are both lucky we both still have our jobs (for now.)

  • Just about the same. SInce the first of October 2007,my investments have lost a lot. But now --the last few weeks, they are climbing back up again. But basically,I can say my life is just about the same. (I'm not falling for the anti-Obama crap,by the way.LOL)
