Dear world,

Chris was laid off last week so we are now in the business of looking for a job. I know that most (if any) of my readers are SAHM's but who knows......

Chris has a master degree from University of Michigan in Health Services Administration. He has about 8 years experience mainly in finance.

Anyway if you know anything or anyone great!

Thanks :)

ps- we are staying positive, there are jobs out there, we just need to be patient. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers on our behalf.

love Us

sucky suckness

You know what really sucks? Jingle mail! Well at first I thought the term is kind of funny. Just think, the joy of putting the keys to my house in an envelope, licking it shut, and having a good chuckle thinking of the bank having to deal with my home that has depreciated over 70 grand in six years.

Here's what sucks. We needed a house and so we bought one but as it turns out six years ago was a really crappy time to purchase a house.

So now people like me and Chris, and lots of other people out there have been screwed by the subprime homebuyer and the house and commodity speculators. The Wall Street Jerks who made it all so easy kept what they stole, and then got bailed out!

So now people who can make their payment but choose not to send their "jingle mail" back to the lending companies, because it makes financial sense.

Well guess what people we bought our houses and we agreed to pay for them, so if we are financially able to pay for them we should!! But nonetheless it SUCKS.

You really SUCK! read this article to see why......

Church Halloween Party

So I recycled last years costumes because I didn't have it in me to sew new ones this year. Here are just a couple pictures from the last little while.

We are just really busy these days, but making it. :)
