Well, I'm in the same boat, but opposite side of the coin. My husband just doesn't get it. He just thinks I'm paranoid and falling off the deep
end. I try to talk to him, but he just doesn't want to hear it. His philosophy is what will happen, will happen, why worry about it? If it was just
us two, perhaps I coud go along with it (probably not, but perhaps); however, we have three kids to look out for. I'm sorry, but I'm going to do

I know what you mean, my wife refuses to listen... she does not want to know or worry about anything.
"Your always so negative now" is what I get.

problem have drastically increased!
So, if I didn't bat an eyelash at the Y2K hype why do you think I am itchy now??
I get, Blah -"your older and more paranoid", "You visit the loony message boards now and watch Glen Beck"
To many people voluntarily want to put their head in the sand because the anxiety is just to much to take I guess... causes depression.
Oh well, I will prepare as much as I can. I simply have to take out money in 100 increments as "cash back" weekly from the grocery store so SHE
doesn't blow it on freeking crap!
Money in the bank to her is like " ALL that money, it is a Shame not spending it" if you know what I mean. If it is there, she will find a way to
