Ahhh...the economy. We have been hit hard here in the Midwest. The Hubs hasn't been working his full 40 hours a week in over a year. Things have gotten very tight financially, but I can say our God has met all our needs. I don't do any extra driving or visiting and nothing has been done in the house for a very long time. Because of my new way of eating and working out we are spending more on healthy and organic food, so there usually isn't any money left at the end of the week.

Well, since the Government is doing it's ten year census, my daughter and I applied and took the test. Yesterday I was called to be an enumerator. I am not too excited about this temporary job, but it is a job and pays well. We could really use the extra money to do some necessary repairs around the house and yard. I also want to get away with my man, just the two of us, for a little vacation. It has been years since we have taken time away by ourselves.

Now, if you haven't sent in your 2010 census form, start looking for me to phone you or knock on your door. (Well it may not be me, but start looking for someone soon.)

Somehow I missed your last post about "Quiet". Sometimes quiet can be heavenly. It's good to hear from you again. How are you doing on your biggest loser quest? Glad you have a temporary job, even if it doesn't pay well. They say the economy is starting to recover. We can only hope and pray. (By the way, our census form has been sent)

Oops! I meant to say even if the job isn't something you really want to do--you did say it would pay well.
