Bill's Bill's and More Bill's

                                                                                                Bills Bills and more Bill’s

Has anyone else noticed that it seems to be getting harder and harder to get ahead?  That lovelydream we all bought into, seems to be disappearing right in front of our eyes.  I was a single parent for over ten years, and I have to tell you that I am honestly appalled at how much food has gone up, utilities, gasoline, and everyday items.

Now I am not a whiner, or complainer, I’m a roll-up your sleeves and see what we can do kind of lady.  I had a paper route as a kid, a vegetable stand, I have worked hard my whole life. However, I am honestly having a hard time seeing the light in this one, not even so much for myself, as for others. 

I don’t consider myself old, but it is getting harder and harder and that is with two people now.  What I find ironic is that no matter whom I talk to of my friends and acquaintances everyone is feeling the same PINCH.  Now my question to you is this, if we are all feeling it, and can see the gas prices going up sometimes several times a week.  How can anyone claim that the economy is really recovering? Are we being feed a line, to avoid panic?

Two years ago, I could run into my local Shop Rite and buy $20 worth of groceries and make dinner and lunch for the next day for my family.  When I run in to the store now to pick up a few things, its $50 for the same items.  Now I’m not a gloom and doomer here but I find it very hard to buy into the argument that the economy is recovering. Especially with the debt ratio, this country is sitting on, not pretty.  

Even here in my own county, I still see a sea of for sale signs on house that are vacant, and we are not talking driving by the beach. If the average person can no longer afford to buy a home where does that leave us all, because that trickledown effect is real, as most people know.  Therefore, here is the question for the day, and I hope you will comment.

Do you think the economy is recovering?

 As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence.

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
