Bye bye 2008

Well its the  end of another year, damn is it me or does it seem like the older you get the years just start to zoom by? I swear it seems like 2008 only just started and now the year is already over.

This year has definitely been one for the books, America decided to elect its first non-White president, of course they decided to do so when America is clearly in a downward spiral. I gotta be honest I don’t envy the mess that Obama is inheriting from Bush.

The economy is a mess, reports came out yesterday that showed that not even Christmas couldn’t make Americans part with their money. Well guess the truth came out, this past decade of record growth wasn’t real growth…folks was spending credit, now that no one has any and folks is forced to live within their means, not even kick ass deals can make folks shop.

I was reading how thousands of stores as well as shopping centers may close in 2009, well maybe we had too many in the first place. I like to shop like the next person but really shopping shouldn’t be the national past-time.

Anyhoo, who knows what 2009 will bring but the sista in Maine wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Tonight I will indulge in my last bout of unhealthy eating before I get back on my grind, catch ya in a few days.
