I try really hard not to get sucked into despair but sometimes I really can't avoid the fact that it really looks like everything is going to hell in a handbasket. Money is becoming a huge issue for us and I know we are in good company there. Even before today's financial meltdown, it had become apparent that it's going to become more and more difficult to stay on top of the bills, pay the mortgage, and still buy decent food for our kids.
So how do I cope? It's the little things, really. Today I managed to scrape together $15 for Planned Parenthood. I made the donation in honor of Sarah Palin. And had the acknowledgment card sent to McCain campaign headquarters. And do you know what? I feel a while lot better!
