33. I'm with you, central scrutinizer.
The same pretty much applies. My husband and I both live quite simply so have been able to pay off our mortgage/other debt and save quite a bit. We both maintained our jobs and still do not know how; our industry has been hit very hard in the last four years, yet we both somehow managed to avoid the land mine cuts all around us. We count our blessings on that front, but yet another new round of cuts has us in the crosshairs. So we wait.

Your words on schools, jobs, the environment, our bottoming out in our standing in the international community, and the loss of so many of our servicepeople in Iraq (including one of my dearest friends) haunt me as well. I'm not really that much better off based on all of those things.

Long story short (ha!) I do not seem to be able to separate my personal well-being with that of my country and countrymen/women. I must be a Democrat or something. :-)
