It's been a year-and-a-half since I posted. As I predicted, the economy is MUCH worse than when I posted in November 2007. As I claimed, we have indeed been in a recession for a long time. Since I posted the stock market has crashed, crooks on Wall Street have destroyed investment in this country and unemployment is in the double digits.
There is, however, a piece of good news.
We have a new President. His job is a tough one - maybe even impossible - but he's trying. The people who worked hard to defeat him (in many cases, the same who caused our current disaster) continue to try to undermine his efforts. I applaud when I hear them say Obama is on the wrong track. Since it's different than what THEY did and what THEY did destroyed our economy, then I think there's a possibility that what HE is trying just may work.
"There is a glimmer of hope."
Anyway, when this all hit I took the most recent house plans - the final plans that had taken the house totally away from what I wanted - and tucked them away.
I've decided that I need to try to help turn the karma around by acting as if we will actually be able to build this house someday, so one of my chores for spring break is to make notations on the plans and send them back to Angela. I think it will still be at least two years before we see if this will even be a possibility for us, but I have to keep moving in a positive direction.
