It's Deja Vu All Over Again!

I was going back through emails from my sister. Believe it or not, I have have kept them as far back as 2004! This little exchange really caught my interest. It was written in July 2004:

And so I added up the numbers
Now I'm depressed.
I should be happy -
I've just proved that the impossible is possible
I sat down with my bills
added them all up
and they come to more than the $300 a week bathing job
even pared down to the barest minimum.
How is it that I am caught up for July?
I don't know.
How did I make it on $800 a month (sometimes less)from November to now?
How is it that I actually have money in a savings account?
And none of my utilities are turned off?
And nothing has been reposessed?
It's probably a financial miracle that I even have any money at all!
I should fall to my knees and be thankful.

So, that was four years ago. I am now employed someplace else making $250 a week and picking up odd jobs here and there. My bills are not substantially different, it's still a miracle! And I have yet to fall to my knees and be thankful!

I'm going to do that right now.
I am!

And then, I'm going to post my sister's reply...
