How strong is America's economy

Many are speculating a double-dip recession. Many are still without a job. It's been a hard couple of years for a lot of Ameicans. I've seen lay-offs after lay-offs after lay-offs. Perharps the result of living in an industrial town. I saw the rise of Cash advance places preying on poor Joe. With high interest rates, these short term loans should the last resort. But oh well, it feels like it's always the last resort for most people. Now I see title car loans becoming popular. I wonder what's next???

Once again, I'm on my search for diet pills that work! It's been really hard, and the ones that actually work are a bit price-y. I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay that much money for some pills if I can lose weight the old-fashioned way: exercise. I've been going to the park a lot lately to run a few laps, and it's been working out pretty well so far. So why should I buy diet pills if my method as of now is working?


Owning a family business has always been an option for us, but I doubt it's happening soon. Think of all the money it would cost just to start up the business: we'd need everything from a place to hold the business, cash registers, barcode scanners, etc and we don't even know how successful the business will be in the first place. We might do something like this in the distant future, but I can't see myself doing it now. But it'll always be a possibility.


Growing up, I've always wanted to be a nurse. Not only do you get the satisfaction of helping make someone's life better, but you get to wear these awesome scrubs too. I don't know why, but growing up I've always loved the way they looked. Some girls wanted princess dresses, I wanted scrubs. I can't tell you why, but I always thought they looked cool.
All joking aside, as much as I would have loved to be a nurse and save people's lives, I'm happy with the way my life turned out now. Now that I think of it, I think a job like that would be too stressful so I'm glad things turned out the way they did.

Looking Like a Fool With Your Pants on the Ground

Trends come and go, and more recently hip hop clothes have become really popular amongst today's generation. I admit, they seem pretty cool, but it really annoys me when I see teenage guys walking around everywhere with their pants sagging. I'm sorry, but nobody wants to see the lovely pattern you have on your boxers. It isn't so bad with girls, but I've seen a couple of girls walking around with baggy pants as well. Oh well. This trend is bound to fade away eventually.

Happy Couple!

A good friend of mine recently celebrated her 10th year wedding anniversary. I can't believe a decade has passed since we attended her beautiful wedding celebration. Everything's still fresh in my mind. The motiff, the church, the mass, the groomsmen gifts and keepsakes, and of course the very festive reception. It was one for the books. It took them months to prepare for the wedding and it was all worth it in the end. Everyone has fond memories of it.

Tina and Mike, Happy Anniversary!!!! We love you guys!!!

Planning ahead.

Alexis loves her iPod and she would go nowhere without it - music's her life. She refused to go to bed last night because she misplaced her iPod and she wouldn't rest until she found it. She's so protective of it that you'd think she'd die without it.
With all of this in mind, I've been considering getting her a new, upgraded Lecteurs MP3 because she's had this one for quite some time now. Yes, it's too early to be thinking about Christmas presents, but I'm trying to get all my gift ideas down now so I won't be so stressed out Christmas shopping when the time comes.

Laminate Floors

Most of the floors in our house are carpeted, though the kitchen and the bathrooms each have a laminate floor, which is a lot easier to clean than a carpet. Because of this, we've lately been considering replacing our carpets with laminate wood floring, especially now that we have our dog, who thinks he's free to use the bathroom wherever he wants. It'll be a lot easier to clean up messes if we do indeed replace it than it is now.
