30 Days of Thanks – 11/10/14



Quite frankly, I hate money … I mean, it’s nice to have … but I hate having to worry about it.  And I know it really isn’t the best thing to “over share” about money – whether you have it or don’t have it, whatever the case may be.  I know my husband probably doesn’t appreciate when/if I talk about it too much.  It’s kindda personal … but I share some of our financial woes because they are seemingly part of God’s plan for us – but He so miraculously has supplied our needs the last few years that it is worth remembering where we’ve come from (at least for me!!).

Anyway … for once I am thankful  to have gotten a bill in the mail today.  Not only because I have the means to pay for it – but because our electric bill for the past 29 days was $54!!!!!!!  I don’t know what electric bills run around the country or at your house (and certainly, again, it isn’t really something one talks about, I suppose) – but on the average our electric bills – particularly when we lived in Missouri and had electric heat averaged about three times that much.  Our duplex’s electric bill ran pretty high because the place has no insulation – and the windows let in heat/cold, whichever was going on each season.

SO, to have an electric bill be $54 is AMAZING!!!  Granted, we barely – if at all ran the a/c the last few weeks – and we weren’t home so much – but WOW.  THANK YOU GOD for a little break – even if it isn’t the norm.  And thank you very well-built/insulated, economical, and energy-efficient home and appliances!!!!

    I would love an electric bill of $54 LOL The summer time is horrible for us, it sometimes hits close to $200 because of the AC, winter time is our break, thankfully.

    woot! Our electric bill is crazy in the long ‘summer’ season… this is our respite time when the wood stove heats the water too. Maybe we need a wind turbine? :p
