Times are hard...

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

Gasoline prices reached the P50/liter mark. Rice prices are up too. The Peso is struggling against the dollar (not complaining though :D). These are signs that our economy is suffering. It's funny that a friend visited this blog for a few seconds just to apologize for not visiting more often. The reason? She's looking for 'rakets' to help with their family expenses. Funny because we always thought they're okay all the while but sad as well knowing that if their family income seems not enough, then a lot more people are complaining. For the past few days, Hubby and I are scrimping on our expenses because we need to stretch, stretch, stretch. Even his mid-year bonus has been allocated for expenses -- part of his dad's car insurance (since we use the truck a lot), pay-off the credit card bill for the unexpected purchases, clothes (because we need new ones, really) and the rest for savings. We are even contemplating that I go and find "real" work.

Oh well. I need to knock into my head that we are still lucky that eating three times a day (and more) isn't a problem...
