So have you all heard that the economy is really bad. I think they are saying we are in a recession headed for a depression. I have thought this was true because I watch the news every day and the only thing they talk about is how horrible the economy is. I know that a lot of people have lost their jobs and their is a lot businesses shutting down because of the economy and people are losing their homes and stuff.
But let me just say I went shopping on Saturday, which is very unusual for me to go shopping for clothes. We have family pictures this week and we all needed new outfits for it, so I spent the day shopping. I think someone forgot to tell the crowds at Old Navy, Ross, Target and the mall that our country is about to fall apart and go in a deep depression. It was like Christmas shopping. I had to circle the parking lot looking for a parking space and then stand in line for fifteen minutes to checkout after I fought the crowds to find what I was looking for. Not only were the stores packed but the restaurants were too. I was completely surprised, I guess I don't get out much.
I'm not trying to down play the economic situation, but what I am saying is if you were to cut off the t.v., quit reading the newspaper and Internet, then I don't think you would have any idea there was a recession going on unless you were personally affected by it. I have decided to stop listening to that junk, that's what the news is now, and just focus on my own economic situation and not worry about everything else. Because I think the news is trying to scare everyone. So if you think the economy is bad just head out to the local shopping center and see how bad everything is!
