it seems no matter where i turn lately there is an overall cloud hanging over everyone. blogs seem to be quieting down and when people do blog there's so much stress and...not sadness but just a feeling of...eh, vanilla. no joy. no excitement. it's the same with most people i talk to face to face as well. are we all waiting for the sky to fall? are we all so stressed about the possibility/probability of the economy getting worse? i don't know.
what i do know is that even if the sky falls and your worst case scenario happens (losing jobs, houses, becoming destitute, etc.--yes, these are things that live in that dark corner of my brain) i won't lose my friends and family. could the hubs or i lose our jobs this coming year? sure, nothing is guaranteed. this thought worries me, but the most important things in my life can't be taken from me.
i don't even know what i'm trying to say here other than i hate this cloud of melancholy or depression or worry or stress that's hanging over everyone and i just like to share this cup of coffee w/ you instead.
