Odds and Ends

Monday, November 23, 2009

Feeling blah! The holdidays are upon us, and I just don't feel it. Having a rough time with all the focus that our world puts on shopping and having everything. I don't want it all and can't afford it. I so wish things could turn around financially for us. So frustrating to life day to day short. I know we are blessed to live in metro Detroit and still be employed, but at such a cut rate, its so frustrating!!!

I am super grateful that mom is in remission, and can't begin to thank everyone who has dropped by with meals for her, stopped in to support her, and prayed for her. The best I can do is support others in her shoes when I hear of needs.

Sorry to vent, just had a melt down last night... this time of the year Oct-year end is so expensive for us, and it just really gets to me!!! Between that and the change of seasons and diminishing day light, all leads to the blues....

    I agree with BVTWIN, you can do inexpensive gifts and nobody will know the difference. The dollar store is my favorite place to shop. I wish the commercialism was gone from Christmas, but unfortunately it's out there due in large part by the media. Just do what you can and forget the rest! That's what I'm going to do.

    I know how you feel, but the secret is to back off and do only what you feel you can do. Please don't try to make things perfect. Last year I bought beautiful calendars at the dollar store and nobody knew what I paid for them.

    I hear you! And it gets hard to keep your chin up when money gets tight. I'm opting out of some activities at work and have cut back elsewhere as much as I can. I swear, Chamomile helps.
