I wish I could honestly say yes to this question. The truth is, here in Florida anyway, we still have record numbers of forclosures and pretty high unemployment.
The forecast from our own government says that unemployment will probably take another up swing by the end of this year.
Gas prices moving up, home prices are very unsettled, and the dollar is losing value quickly. I would love to be optimistic because it is my nature. I think our government needs to get a whole lot more serious about getting things done "that will actually help" and quit wasting time bickering over what each party wants.
Personally, I think we have a ways to go!
