Sometimes I feel like we are the only ones,
but sometimes I feel SO POOR!!!
We are as middle class as they come, so why is it we have no extra money?
I feel totally strapped for money sometimes, but we are not the what the world would see as needy.
Case and point: After being thrashed by the extremely low price sale of our current house, we have to live with our beloved in laws for 6 months (bless their hearts) to save enough money for a downpayment on the house we are building. We are required to leave our washer and dryer in our current house, which means we will have NADA in our new house. Since every spare cent will go towards downpayment we will not have money to buy a washer and dryer. *SIGH OF STRESS* (Also , we are still college STUDENTS believe it or not. Brian is getting a 2nd Masters right now to work toward education administration).
A new family in our ward have a spare washer and dryer and offered them to anyone in the ward that needs it. It was seriously an answer to a prayer.
However, she tells us, " I was expecting to give it to a needier family."
We were a little stunned - at this point we cant even afford to go on a real date. Our date night was going on a walk last night for 1 1/2 hours. So this comment smarted a little.
What constitutes "needy" anyway? Do we HAVE to live in the ghetto to qualify????? SHEESH!
