    And this is only the beginning... No mobile phone, its cut, no Internet connection, bills unpaid, rents also even if Im moving out, no money for nothing..

    Statistics say that 1000 persons lose their job in Greece, every day, can you believe?
    I am so sorry my friend I am so worried about what lies ahead...

    Olga and SB - I often think of you guys and the situation you are faced with! Prayers for you! They say things are starting to get better here in the US, but things are still tough for many people. I am on a small fixed income (Social Security Disability), my husband's business is way down and the youngest is in college. Things are SO tight right now. My daughter's boyfriend is moving in with us soon in exchange for helping with things around here - fall leaves, Christmas boxes up and down from the basement, light chores and repairs. I am looking forward to the extra help and like the fact that we are helping him out until he gets another job!!

    Thanks for your kind thoughts OM. Thank you for caring
    I hope and pray that the new year will be kinder to us, or at least not any harsher.
    I hope the best for you too

    Hey, Tia and I thank you all for your concern.

    Those 2 years, situation has become dramatic for people who live in this country.
    Unfortunately, all statistics say that things will become worst and that we will not get out of this bad dream, soon.......
    Can you imagine my friends that 1000 people lose their jobs every day, here????

    I worked 17 years, had a normal life, I m happy I could make it for a living all those years and by my self..
    I did not make money, just had a salary that provided me a life with my small home and my first needs always taken care of..

    To be honest, Im not giving fake hopes to myself that things will become better... No way.
    Im 35 years old and I wanna live my life, make a family, have happy moments..

    I think, I have to see what lies ahead and make serious decisions about staying here, or not..

    What's on my mind? Well, it kind of hard NOT to have the situation in Greece on my mind. Seems I'm reading about it in every thread. I sure hope things turn around there.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    Thank you Mike.

    Well I finish work tomorrow. For this tourist season. If I'm lucky it'll be busy enough to work a few extra days before Christmas.

    It's official. I'm done with work for this season. A big dent in our monthly income.
