Freaky Friday

Another Freaky Friday. This is making Happy Hour more like the Horrid Hour. If we have a depression coming, does that means drinks will be even cheaper at Happy Hour? Brother, can you spare a dime?

The headline is: "Economy Shrinks at Worst Pace in 25 Years." The taxpayers get a bigger share of Citigroup. Wells Fargo, swell guys that they are, are suspending bonuses for top executives. It makes you wonder what makes a top executive. I am sure I could run a Fortune 500 company into the ground as well as any Top Bozo. Or this headline: "New Home Sales at Record Low." "Fannie Mae: $25.2 Billion Loss." "FDIC: Number of Problem Banks Increases Sharply in Q4."

I figure I am going to be like the starfish in "Finding Nemo" and find a happy place. You know, relax, take a deep breath. Maybe I should learn to speak whale.

We can set up a cardboard box neighborhood~! I call dibs on the refrigerator box. Have a great weekend!

...We might need to move in with you. Dave just got laid off. No, I'm not kidding. So - we'll see where this goes.

Jeanne, I am truly sorry to hear that. I do have 2 extra bedrooms and a big loft and you are always welcome to them you know. Timber would have a blast with Indy. My stomach had a spasm when I read that. You know I will be thinking of you and although we live a few miles apart now, maybe the Lakers will bring you home again? Keep me posted.

Hey Kat - no chance of moving back, but you are SO lovely to offer. We're exploring our options. The kids were upset but you know, they see it everywhere, so they were ok. It helps that they're older. I had two family members help out in different ways that made a big difference to me, and that was amazing. God really does answer prayer. Believe it! I'll keep you posted. Dave is exploring an ad we found in the AZ Republic and we'll see where that leads.
