The Big “D”

Maybe it’s because my husband has been unemployed for over a year and this year just seems harder. Maybe it’s because every little bill seems like an unsurmountable obstacle.

Sometimes it’s nice to lay in bed dreaming, isn’t it? My husband’s recurring daydream seems to always be what to do when we win the lottery. He has the lottery winning amounts planned out in his head and how much he would allot to family, friends, our new house, cars (of course!) and what we […]
