You Gotta Know When to Hold ‘Em

I just took a look at the Wall Street Journal online and noticed that the Fed cut the interest rate again, accompanied by all of the expected articles on how now is the time to get a new credit card, a new car loan, refinance your house, etc.

Meanwhile I’ve sat in three meetings this week where businesses and organizations have discussed the need to use money wisely – either “OPM” (Other People’s Money) or their own – during this current economic climate.

It occurred to me how blessed I am to be married to someone who (forgive me Kenny!) knows when to hold ’em, knows when to fold ’em, knows when to walk away, knows when to run. My husband makes great financial decisions and is patient where I am impulsive, asks questions where I barge ahead, is the ying for my yang.

So in “this current economic climate” we’re able to do what we’ve always done: make wise decisions because they are wise decisions, not because we are forced to by external issues.

I’m a pretty lucky gal.
