So the news is official, we are in a recession since last December. It hit me yesterday, but not as badly as it could have. We were told at work that we were being cut back to 36 hours per week which isn't the worst thing at the moment. I will be working half a day on Fridays, unless I'm on the road. Luckily, I paid my car off last month, so I am ahead. I'm trying to keep a positive outlook and I hope the current situation ends quickly. I am on the road for a few days starting today. I'm going to the beautiful, tropical state of...Minnesota. What? You thought I was really going to someplace warm? The only time I go to warm weather destinations is in the middle of August. I'll be gone until Thursday afternoon, but I will be online as always.
