The Season After

Season to be jolly and keeping up with the Joneses (buying frenzy of latest and expensive toys, to outshine the other) are over for another year and people are faced with lack of motivation to get on with life as is. This year too will go as fast as the one before but get going initially is always a slog.

Creditors on the other hand will be pumping with glee… January sees the customary sky rocketed credit card debt, people struggling to pay bills, financial counsellors inundated with clients, partners squabbling about overspending during the holiday season, marriage break ups etcetera…………


Yet we will do them all over again at the end of this year!

2008 —let’s make the most of it!


PS: Does that sound cynical? Didn’t mean to : )

    Merry New Year!
    Hope you didn’t forget to buy the Orange Box( A necessity for every family)… Dunno what I’m talking about? Google it! 😉

    Anyway, about creditors… I’m one of ’em, but I don’t see any of my hard earned funds returning to my hands…

    Ohh….It is very easy to get carried away with credit on tap. Hope you’ll be able to pay it off before your next splash and pay astronomical interest on accrued amounts.

    Thanks for the good wishes, wish you the same : )

    Thanks, wish you the same : )

    Did you raid your parents’ liquor cabinet before you commented? You sound tipsy. : -o

    About the Orange Box -It takes effort to Google 🙂 so I asked the son………..I am definitely not getting it. : )
