Rainy day

March 21st, 2006 at 03:53 pm

Aren't I supposed to be saving for a rainy day? well this is a rainy day, and it is misearable! The kids arn't really listening, my newest is cranky, I am tired, and DH spent the night having nighmares!

So what is the money for? Is saving for a rainy day an old reference to when a job depended on the weather? Silly that a phrase I have used so often I don't really understand.

I did some searching online, and while I found lots of advice on how you should save for a rainy day I found no information on why.... (about the rain, not why on saving in general, that advice abounds online).

Might be a product of the modern world but honestly I am less likely to spend money in the rain. (cept on heatng up hot chocolate!) I don't want to go anywhere and I have to force myself to do anything (like dishes)

    saving for a rainy in the Pacific NW, all we have sometimes are rainy days...........followed by more rainy days. I've always assumed "rainy days" referred to when times weren't sunny & perfect. I wonder where the saying came from've given me something to ponder today!! Could it be lyrics from a song?? Hmmmm

    I think saving for a rainy day means for unexpected emergencies. You don't realize you need a new roof till it rains.
