I was one of those people who once bought into the “american dream.” then I realized it was all a crock of crap that the government has been trying to tie us down with since the beginning. Is it really our dream to be in debt to mortgage companies, credit card companies, landlords, tax collectors, etc? I think NOT. even if you buy your house and are fortunate enough to pay it off before you die, you never really own it. try not paying your property taxes and you will quickly find out who really owns “your” house!
when the bottom fell out of my hubby’s industry a few years ago I decided it was time for me to go back to school. I have completed 3 years now with 2 years to go. now, almost on a daily basis we remind ourselves that our situation will be better….someday. I am so damned tired of waiting for someday.
when will it ever be our turn? I mean I’m not asking for much. i want a steady job for both of us, a decent place to live where I can build projects and plant flowers. I want my kids to be able to come for dinner on sundays and sit around the table laughing and loving each others company. I want to be able to afford gas for my car, food in the fridge and the occasional date night. THAT IS MY AMERICAN DREAM!!
