Has this economy continued to hurt your wallet, or are you doing just fine?

I was thinking about this as I came to work today and was greeted with not a lot of work for a monday. We do work for a lot of different people/businesses and we have seen slow downs in every industry. We usually stay busy year round, but there are times where it's feast or famine that's for sure.

Personally speaking my money is held pretty firmly, we are currently paying off as much debt as possible before we get a house. This economy definitely has impacted me though. I used to reach my bonus almost every week, but now I rarely reach my bonus which sucks, but being employed is enough to keep me content. I know some of you guys in here are in pretty solid industries, but those who are not, does the economy continue to hurt you financially?

But, it is nice being near the busiest intersection in Topeka.

The building we are attached to is going to become an HVAC school. I've not a damn clue how parking is going to work when that's all said and done.
huh....private or for the union?

Private, I do believe.

LL owns the building we are in and the parking from our front doors on. The students who attend the HVAC school will have like 2-4 spots of parking. And the back of Target, assuming Target lets them park there.

I'm in IT, my paycheck is ok, nothing great but it pays the bills. She teaches, so again, its ok but we aren't going to retire by 40, thats for sure.

Once we get past the remodel bills, the hatchling bills, and square up on some of our previous debt, we'll dig ourselves back in with a new car purchase. The interest goblins keep coming back, over and over and over again.
we had the same problem last year.

50k and about 1100sq ft with two bathrooms and nine. months later and I'm done

Lol. Funny you would say that.

I did. I didn't get a single piece of carpet laid. Kids and the wife are hard on that shit.

Traded it all out in labor to a guy whose diesel blew up at just the right time for me

Some times it is hard to pass up a good deal.

If you got any questions as far as repairs, or questions or general re: hardwood flooring give me a holler.

Could definitely use a raise but doubt I will ever see it. Could be worse, I am greatful for steady employment. Need to kill off some of this debt I have going and I will be doing well. The Feds need to give me back my 1200. Fiscal cliff is a scam to get my loot

Yeah - I'd say I'm affected. I used to get almost double what I currently charge to finish basements. I can't wait for things to right themselves so I can get back to better margins.

If I'm not mistaken, the recession ended two plus years ago?

And I'm financially better than I have ever been.
