To Market, To Market

If you live under a rock then maybe you did not hear about the horrible week that the US economy had, otherwise you are completely stressed out like the rest of us. I have been living in a bit of a bubble the last few years. We have a good life; two beautiful, healthy children, a nice house, private school and me with the opportunity to stay at home. Until now! We have lost a shit load (I said shit) of money in the stock market so I am looking to work more and help out with the monthly bills. The moral of this story is not to ever get too comfortable. The market (and the economy) will eventually come back to bite you in the ass. As I complain please note that I am aware that I have it a lot better than a lot of other people in this world. I just needed to whine briefly. Oh and my conservative (uber conservative) husband might even vote Democrat in November. This is how turned around our world is right now.

Now now don't get too far ahead of yourself. We'll see what happens.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm sorry that an economic meltodown had to get him to even consider it, but we'll take what we can get...

XOXOXOXO

I'm sorry about your finances and hope it turns back around for you. I am also crossing my fingers about the voting! Please! Our country can't take 4 more years of this greed. See what happened?
