    How exactly has this down economy impacted you?

    I'd love a cross section of comments, the good, the bad, the not really...

    The good- we moved to Indiana near a favorite family member.
    The bad- my husband had to take a job where he was gone most of the time.
    The not really- my clothes still fit.

    I used to copywrite for a living. It wasn't much, a content farm basically, but I could survive on it. The down economy meant I began to compete with people possessing master's degrees and doctorates for 3 bucks an article. I don't have the credentials to match. Because these people couldn't hold their jobs, they put me out of my job. I laughed my ass off when I found out that most content farms were beginning to outsource to India because of the high English fluency rate and extremely low income requirements. Guess if I'm not getting paid, no one is.

    It's not some much the ecomony as the weather, my husband works for a branch of Honda and since all the mother natural things over seas it has cut his hours and work days for the past 6+ months and looks like it won't be until the new year that he is back to 5 day work weeks. 
    STOP!!! mother natural!!! please I have bills to pay.
