    While I am not a big spender by all means I still somehow manage to run our CC bill up a little higher than I like by the end of the month. (I would like to see a -0- in the new purchases column- lol). We do pay our balance in full each month and others seeing the numbers would probably...

    I was talking with a lady who swears she heard "someone" speak about the economy and how it is going to be in 5 years. She claims that in 5 years 70% of Americans will be unemployed and the other 30% who are working will have to take a pay cut. I have not been able to verify this information...

    So what are planning? A wild party or a relaxing night at home safe and sound in front of the fire place? SIL always has a party with plenty of fun drinks. DH has to work in the morning so I will leave it up to him what he feels like doing. If he wants to chill and stay home, fine with me...

    I decided a while ago they don't really work so I don't make them. To me it's just one of those things that makes you feel badly when you don't quite rise to the occasion and follow through with whatever it is. I just try my best and if I don't like whatever about myself or something tomorrow is...
