Aloha Friday: Economy

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays we take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, Kailani asks a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Then everyone else asks a simple question on their own blog for others to answer.

My question is:

How you have been most effected by the current economy?

For more questions from Aloha Friday, go to An Island Life.

My son who lives with me got laid off last week, the grocery store in my neighborhood just closed and another store is closing soon.

My husband lost his job last night because his (very small) company literally ran out of money - all the power utilities are under a lot of strain and just weren't signing on with projects that they used to. Very sad.

We found out yesterday that Joel's sister's husband was laid off.

Meanwhile, we're still waiting for a contract to be signed between Joel's employer and the client company. When that happens pink slips will go out. It's complicated but we don't think Joel will be laid off. If he is we have over 3 months living expenses saved up and know who our Provider is.

Working in a part of the airline industry here is always ify, but we are blessed so far. Only a cut in overtime and a few layoffs. We are thankful everyday for Roberts job.

I haven't really felt the change yet but since I'm now out on maternity leave, I'm sure it will hit us soon!
