Sadness from Pheonix

I received an e-mail from my girlfriend a little while ago.  Her husband was laid off.  He might be getting another job, but they would have to move to North Dakota.  She said she was scared, but she still ended by saying that she would let me know if the people there have fur.  You’ve got to love her. 

The downward slopping economy hasn’t effected us much so I’ve been a little blind.  My husband and I never had to worry about losing our jobs.  I can’t talk about this anymore.

It rained all night and most of the day so we went to Walmart.  I needed a crochet hook size D.  I should have one, but I can’t find it.  They don’t carry the needles I need.  Maybe I can find them at Stitches.  I also bought a new pair of jeans.  Suddenly, all of mine are pretty ratty.  Please note, they are a size smaller.  Then, we headed over to the food.  When I think about it, we have always been a little frugal like buying extra of what’s on sale.  The house we lived in was less than what we could afford, but we paid for four years of college for our son. 

Darn, I keep getting moody.  Here’s a cat picture.  I’m going to knit.  And there better be something good on TV!

    Ahhh…your poor friend. She will need fur to survive there. That is hard. It is scary. Hopefully…once she is there she will grow to love it the same as I love Saskatchewan. The climate and the appearance are the similar. The people are friendly. Maybe even the housing will be cheep too. You can always hope.

    We have not been hit in our provence yet. If oil prices continue to fall we all may not be out of the woods yet. Our economy is somewhat dependent on that. The value of our dollar is dropping. Our money will not go as far as we thought it would when we go to Seattle. I wish I had bought some American money last summer when our dollar was trading at a dollar ten instead of the 76 cents that it is worth now.

    I try not to dwell on it all. I try not to worry. That never fixed anything yet I do find it all very depressing.
