Frenzied Friday

Busy day today. After Cindy cooked an excellent breakfast, we put all the camping gear back up in the attic; brought down the Rubbermaid tubs of winter clothes from the attic, went through them and separated out what we were going to give to Goodwill and kept down what we thought we might need for the next few months; I worked some more on clearing things out of my office while Cindy created some of her wonderful handmade candles, then we both did quite a bit of yard work in the backyard.

After a shower, we drove to Goodwill to drop off those clothes and some other items we had to donate, went out to lunch, stopped by Michaels so Cindy could pick up some things she needed for her candle-making business and Office Max so I could get some banker's boxes for office material and file storage, then returned home and I spent the rest of the day working in the office while Cindy worked on more candles and then went to Starbucks to meet her friends for some tea.

We, like most of you, are struggling with the difficult economy and its necessitating the extra-careful watching of our finances. So I was happy to use a coupon for our lunch (not much of a coupon, but every bit counts, right?) and a special discount card Cindy received from her employer for our purchases at Office Max (which knocked more than 50% off our total there!) to keep our "paid outs" as small as possible.

I said a while back that I thought if Obama were elected it would have a positive effect on the economy, so his election this past Tuesday gives me hope that we can now begin to get out of this economical quicksand that Bush dragged us into. Obama's press conference today confirmed that the economy will be his main focus from the first day of his administration on January 20, 2009.

I hope we can all last until then.

I know what you mean. This next two and a half months will, undoubtedly, go by fast but will seem like an eternity waiting for it. It's been a loooooong 8 years.
