The stock market is still tanking – but I did my part to shore up the financial markets today by investing in Kraft Foods and BP. People have to eat and drive their cars (even if they are trying to do less of the latter). And while I am in no way convinced that we’ve hit bottom, the two companies’ stock prices are at levels not seen in a very long time. You know times are bad when a 128-point decline in the Dow Jones is considered a good thing.
I left work a bit on the early side to pick up Sophie from her babysitter this afternoon. It was so nice to be home at 5 pm! I’d forgotten what it was like. We made some rounds and visited our neighbors, and had a lovely hour catching up with our friends. It was a gorgeous day and I was happy to spend a bit of it outside with my little girl.
