It's amazing how life goes from one day to the next and things just change rapidly. Up till now our life has been pretty even keeled. We live comfortably, don't spend excessively and work hard for what we have. And all of a sudden we find ourselves on a down hill slide. Had to take my inheritance check from my Uncle and make our mortgage payment today. Our rental units usually pay for themselves (we do not make any money on them, but they are a good investment, or so I thought). We have one empty unit and now I find myself having to put our own money into them to keep them afloat. Utilities both on our house and the rentals are due and there is no cash to pay them. We thought of selling but the economy is so bad right now we'd lose our shirts if we sold. So as of today we join the millions of others in the world that have to stuggle to make ends meet.
Went to the grocery store and could not believe the price of fresh produce and every thing else. Can see where I am going to have to get inventive and use up what is in the cupboards before buying anything else. And of course with this comes my feelings of inadequacy because I'm powerless to do anything about it right now. I really have to work at this or I will lose what little I have gained (or gain what little I have lost).
I did set up the Biggest Loser on my Wii last night. It is an interesting program so will see how it goes. Have been wearing the pedometer from the DS program I bought all day. I actually got them both at the used games store yesterday so they were a reasonable price.
