TGIF!!!

It's been a tough week. I haven't really said much. I put a little on my other blog but basically the economy crisis has hit home. We have taken a pretty huge pay cut. We won't be seeing the effects of it for a couple of weeks but things are already very tight. I know for a fact we will not be able to afford to live. This is a fact. I have gone over so many possibilities and I have run out of ideas. We have bills that must be paid and we won't have the money to pay them. This is not counting my medical bills and all the tests and appointments I still have to have. Luckily we still have insurance but we have still have a lot of medical bills and a portion of each bill to pay. Not to mention my daughter's asthma meds and just so much stuff. I have been a little down this week trying to think of a solution to our troubles. I know everyone is having a rough time right now. I know it's not just us. That doesn't really make me feel any better. I hope this trouble ends soon because if it doesn't I really am at a loss to know what will happen. I'll try to be thankful my hubby still has a job. Regardless I am glad it's Friday. Hubby will be home with me and that always makes me feel better. I just want to relax and at least for awhile pretend like nothing is wrong!

I'm so very sorry this is happening to your family. This same thing is happening to so many. I hope some resolution happens for you very soon.

You and yours are in my prayers. Enjoy your weekend with hubby. :)

i hate it when we're broke and people say "yeah, everyone is, it's the economy". thanks but the people i have to pay don't care. the credit card companies, car loan companies and mortgate companies all want their money. and the electric will still get shut off, even if the economy is to blame for me not having any money to pay them. they don't care. anyway, i just wanted to let you know that i feel you. it's rough but hopefully it will end soon! hugs!!!

Oh, Sandi, I remember that situation so well, with my late wife's chemo bills and the expenses of raising a couple of kids and maintaining a home.

Sending all the good juju I can muster...

I'm sorry to hear about the pay cut. It seems everyone is being affected somehow. Best thing I can tell you is be honest about your situation with those you owe. A lot will work with people now. I just got a 6 month no payment due (no penalty)on my car because of the economy and our lessened pay. That helped us a little. $600 we don't have to worry about for a while. And our medical bills are now extended again. (no penalty) Those who worked so hard to keep their good credit in good standing are those who will pay for this in the long run. Good luck and have a great weekend!♥
