Financial Destruction

I don't have any money.

Between my husband and I, we have about .47 cents saved in an actual bank. As for investments, we have tried to stay away from the stock market, mutual funds or CD's.

OUR money is secured in a bunch of crap from the Dollar Tree.

As the economy of this country flops around like a dying fish on the ground, my family has tangibles. Actual things of value. That value, of each thing is of course, one dollar. And so, when we watch these disasters occur it is very much at a distance. We knew a lot of people who lost everything when Enron collapsed and I am sure that a lot of people we know will be effected by these newer problems. Just not us.
We never had the money in the first place.

In other news, these 2 girls of mine are just hilarious sometimes. Genea still misses the meaning of words when they sound similar, and of course Teena then will use the same phrasing pattern. For example, Genea would say she needs a "brand new" when she needs a "band-aid" and she and Teena both still put the emphasis on the second syllable so it comes out "band-AID". I recently put up a mirror in their room and they both immediately went all girly girly on me and several times a day, go in to look in the mirror to check their "brains". At first I didn't get it, but then Genea asked me to fix her brains and I realized she was saying bangs, as in her hair. And I still can't get her to hear the difference which sounds so cute and makes me laugh every time!


  1. What a neat family story. Your girls are very beautiful. We too have adopted from a diruption twice.

  2. Thank you Christine!
