Paying The Price

It is that time of the month and time to pay the bills again.
Every month is an new adventure in how to rob Paul to pay Peter in our Post Katrina era. Those of us who have stayed are paying the price with a higher cost of living.
For example: Last year Cricket's shots were $80.00 dollars. This included vitamins.
This year Cricket's shots cost $155.00. That is almost a 95% increase. Our light bill has a fuel adjustment charge that is double the amount of actual usage. The car insurance has gone up $65.00 over the last year. Our reward for no tickets and no accidents. I am not going to into what the increase is at the grocery store. Makes you wonder why people who have come back are now leaving.
