  3. Financial hardship
    I checked my phone this morning and I had an email that let me know the alarm at the house was off, so I call DH. "Where are you?" "I'm at home." "But why?" "I'll tell you when you get home." So I walk in the front door and ask him what the story was. It turns out he got laid off as of this...

    I went to Wal-mart tonight and realized something odd. Not one of the cashiers were young high schoolers. And six of them were middle-aged men. Unemployed who are glad for hours during the holidays I am guessing. But I am still amazed.

    My washing machine gave out on Monday! In the past I would have just run out and put a new one on my Sears card. Or went to one of those places where you get one and don't make any payments for a year or borrowed the money from my parents. But NOT this time! I am determined that I will NOT...
