Today was a trying and emotional day and I’m still feeling a little down. I don’t like to talk about my personal life much online but I’m going into the fifth month of being layed off from my job. This is after being layed off last year for 5 months and only 7 months work in between. The financial toll on my wife and I is numbing but we’ve been soldiering through. Each step we take to either sell some asset to get money or rearrange something to ease the monthly budget just bites at you more and more. I know we’ll do the proverbial “look back and laugh” some day, but man, that day can’t come soon enough. My 365 photo project is the one thing that kind of gets us out and forgetting about things on occasion, so we drove to the park to see if there were any more blossoms left to photograph. I found one tree and milked it for all it was worth. The blossoms will probably be gone by the next rain.
