Speaking of Karma

Now let's recount...

My mortgage payment may go up or it may stay the same or go down. I don't know for sure yet.

My sister was recently released from the pokey and is starting from scratch.

And now word comes down from on high that our whole department is getting laid off.

While I'm not into the whole pity party scene, I'm starting to feel a little like Job.

Apparently I've pissed off God. I'm sure this is payback for some bad thing I did in the past.

Woodie, God doesn't have anything to do with layoffs and mortgages and house prices, my dear. God doesn't meddle in such things.

At least I don't think God cares about stuff like the boom-and-bust American Casino Economy.

You aren't being singled out. I doubt that makes you feel better but I think it will help to put it in perspective....

... which may make you realize that, while God didn't cause it, can really scare the hell out of a person anyway.

Everybody who is not going through this stuff is sitting here wondering when her turn will come,and trying to cope with the food and utilities ratcheting northwards while languishing on a stagnating income in a field she knows is due for a BIG contraction.
