A blog is an online journal. It can be about anything. There are gardening blogs, and photography blogs. Food blogs are great. Political blogs can cause quite a stir. My blog is about me, and my family. We are struggling right now, but not like a lot of other people are. I have never failed to recognize that. But these struggles are mine. And they are identical to so many in not only my region of the country, but millions effected by the worst downturn in our economy in 70 years. People are having a hard time. I am not at a poverty level. I am not at a point of being on the street. My husband and I work hard for all that we have. We worked our butts off to get where we are, and will do whatever it takes to provide a safe home, and life for our kids.
To give up, and "cut my losses" as some have suggested, would be irresponsible, as my foreclosure is fraudulent, and I just wont let a bank treat us as it has countless families and individuals. I will fight until there is nothing left to fight, because that is my nature. To walk away would be asking for others to pay my debt.
Someone will always have something negative to say. I have asked for nothing. I simply document my life. A very un-extraordinary life. I am nobody. Nobody to a stranger. But I am somebody to some very important people in my life. I am unlike you. But to some, our lives are the same. To fight for what you have worked so hard for is human nature. To condemn that is odd to me.
The girls have a two hour delay. Snow blanketed the ground overnight, just as it had all finally gone away. The wind is howling. Today, I am meeting someone who has offered me some work. Work that I can do from home. I am really excited to meet with him. His wife owns a very successful business that she started in the basement of their home decades ago. They lived in my neighborhood, and raised their children here. He said they purchased an IBM computer, and it all began there, and is now a hugely successful company. I think that is pretty incredible.
