Throw us a bone December 9, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — themamabeth @ 9:29 am

We’ve chosen our lifestyle, and I’m not complaining. I want to be able to stay home with the kids, and in order for me to do that, we have had to make a lot of financial sacrifices. It’s okay. Really. We’re making it, and I’m proud of the fact that we’re able to live on one income, even if we aren’t living…fancily.

What I’m concerned about though, is how long we can sustain this. The news last night informed me that by spring, gas is expected to be $3.50 a gallon. Are you kidding?

There just isn’t anything we can cut from the budget. We live on bare bones as it is, and if things are going to continue to get more expensive, then what? And if gas is going up, that means the price of everything is going to go up. I just don’t know how we’re going to manage at this rate. And someone eventually has got to realize that if the prices of everything keep going up, and the wages that people are getting paid DON’T keep going up, there’s going to be some [more] pretty serious problems.

    I am so here with you. Didn’t we just do this a few years ago and look at the state of our economy. It’s still terrible. I dont’ get why it’s so obvious to use but those that control things still don’t get it. We aren’t bringing in the kind of money necessary to live a life where’s gas is the same price as a gallon of milk. or higher. I have no idea what we’re going to do in this neck of the woods either.
