Uphill

Have you noticed how hard life is these days? I mean with the economy the way it is and trying to make ends meet. Lord help us if we have doctor bills or prescriptions to buy. I shouldn't complain, I'm grateful that my husband has a job. We live a very comfortable life with few big worries. By "Big Worries" I mean health or money problems. But it's still hard. In fact, bargains are as
"Scarce as Hen's teeth!"





I was talking to our GRANDson Gavin the other day. His birthday is coming up and we are having some in depth conversations about a remote control helicopter he saw on an infomercial. I told him I'd check it out, but that "Money didn't grow on trees." I told him that Papa and I have to stretch our dollars these days. He told me maybe someone needs to invent rubber money, the kind that stretches. He's 9, but he's sharp!

If you find a path with no obstacles...it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

  2. When our girls were little we used to say "we don't have the money for it", and get "just get some from the bank" as an answer. They have since learned it doesn't work that way... :-)
