Oofah, “busy” doesn’t even begin to describe what this month has been like. The back-to-school chaos mixed in with waaaayyyyy too much volunteering (I must be stopped!) has kept me running like a hamster on a wheel.
Then of course, there’s this little economic crisis you may have heard about. Scary stuff. Do yourself a favor: go to www.fdic.gov and read up on what your rights are in the event of a bank failure. Did you know that the stuff in your safe deposit box isn’t insured? Neither did I.
Even the recent Presidential debate failed to capture my interest. If anything, it depressed me even further–neither one of those guys has the answer to what ails this country, and I don’t see either one providing solutions. Watching Palin try to put together a cohesive sentence with Katie Couric was p-a-i-n-f-u-l, and Biden is blending into the background like an old piece of furniture you keep forgetting you have. I’m not sure I can stomach watching their debate later this week, but I suspect it’ll be so awful, it might have some “sideshow” appeal.
It’s times like these that I really identify with that Green Day song, “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”
Here’s hoping October brings us all some brighter days.
