Just sitting this morning thinking about how we will make it  through this week and next...and wondering what has happened to this world of our!!  Today our gas prices  are at 4.00$ a gallon...at this rate I'm glad Brooke is done with  school on jUne 13 th....that will save gas!! The price of food is so so so much!! milk bread can just barely be affored!!  It's a shame when you can't even afford the basics to feed your family......I don't know .....it's so depressing  every day...robbing peter to pay paul....basic bills ..trying out what you can avoid paying so you can buy food......it's so hard trying to figure out what to do!  The food banks in our area are out of everything.....it just gets so hard feeling like you have no wear to turnb to!! Just sometimes make you wonder if its worth even trying!!  You know things are bad when you go through your closet hoping maybe theres something in there you forgot about that still tags on so you can maybe take it back and get even a  store credit for food!!  I 'm sur ther are alot of people who have it harder than me but right now this is as bad as it has been for us. I guess i just needed to vent and could a miracle!!confusedfrustrated

Morning Dee........

  Not to a downer this morning but get a locking gas cap for your car and truck.....Both of our vans got hit the other night. They took a total of 3/4 of a tank from us.

Sorry I can't help bring your spirits ups today I am just mad and wondering also were the money is going to come from.

Jun. 8, 2008 at 1:16 AM Ladies, I know it is soooo hard at today's prices for especially young couples! I wish we could ban together and do something? But what? When gas went up because of hauling food (the transportation cost...)it did cause everything to go up too! I help my daughter some and she and her honey work!  I feel so  sorry for all the single Mom's out there (again you young Moms especially but all single Mom's!) The older generation too that can't work or nobody will give them a job! I don't know what the hell is going to happen. It scares me...really what is going to happen???? I see no light at the end of the tunnel. Any how sweetie I know things are hard and I sure wish I could change them for all you Mom's!

The ONLY positive note on this whole situation is....when times are bad you truly learn to appreciate the good times. We're doing a lot of cutting back ourselves. Our average daily commute out here is 140 miles round trip so people are having a helluva time with gas prices. Also, locking gas caps won't help you here. Folks are getting their fuel lines severed or their gas tanks punctured.

Try to get by the best you can...and remember...bad times don't stay bad forever. We just have to ride this one out and eventually, things will turn around again. :-) Maybe if enough people feel the pinch, the government will pull it's head out of it's butt and get on the stick!!!!!! :-) Keep the faith Dee...It'll get better Hon.
