First week of April

April 6th, 2008 at 05:45 am

Well it was a gorgeous day Saturday. I did have to work for a few hours but then DH and I spent a little time outside tidying up the yard. Waiting for spring in all her glory to get here. Waiting to be able to plant my gardens

A few of the neighbors came by and chatted. Seems like we will be losing one neighbor to forclosure and 2 are being forced to sell. My little street will be changing quite dramatically. Makes me grateful I am pinching pennies and watching how we spend money. Although we are by no means that bad off to have to sell.

This week I have gotten lots of freebies. Got personal items, trashbags, medicine, and lots more bread, rolls and sweet treats. Putting all to good use so that I don't feel wasteful.

Now that there is all this talk about layoffs, bad economy, recession, depression it makes me feel good that DH and I have jobs. We talked that no matter how bad they get we will be working there. Jobs are to hard to come by and you will have to compete with a lot of people. It is very scary. In talking with my dad he says this was they way he felt in the 70s. He says it will pass but it will scar a lot of people up pretty bad. Just like the depression did.

    I hope for the sake of your neighborhood those places don't stand empty too long!

    I don't remember feeling that way in the 70's, but I was young and full of hope and enthusiasm. Actually the 70's were among the easiest financial times I had because I was married, we were both employed, had no children yet, we lived in an apartment that cost only 1/4 of our income, and we lived a couple of blocks from work and walked almost every day. We saved 1/4 of our income during that time. Later on, things got much harder. It all depends on your personal circumstances.
