Spent most of the day working on rental agreements, stopping by the downtown rental about leaking plumbing and trying to figure out how much/what color paint to get and whether to clean or replace the carpeting in the rental in Winter Park. How I wish we could get out of this rental purgatory, but it certainly isn't the right time now. We called two local carpet companies that have been around for as long as I can remember and were shocked to find out they were out of business.
We don't eat out very often, but we were talking to a woman in the neighborhood and she was telling us about all the established restaurants that have gone under. I think things are a lot worse than anybody is letting on. God, I hope Obama is smart enough to get us out of this (if we're smart enough to elect him.) It's hard to believe how close the polls are after almost eight years of ruinous "leadership." What will it take for our country to wake up???
On a more positive note, maybe what we need to do is print up our own funny money. Why should Ben Bernanke have all the laughs? I ran across a cool site thanks to Martha Marshall's wonderful blog. Check out this great site and play around for a while. I also like Martha's idea of taking pictures of some of the arrangements in a furniture store and Photoshopping (I'm guessing) her small paintings into the scene to see what they look like in a large format. Pretty clever.
