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!!!!
