Just to clarify…

When I posted yesterday about my craptastic financial situation, I was in no way looking for sympathy or a handout or anything of that nature. While driving home yesterday it occurred to me that posting on a public blog about how broke I am might seem like some kind of request for help.

First of all, I don’t have enough readers for that anyway. I mean I was excited (still am) about the following I have but still, I didn’t intend to make any of you feel sorry for me.

Secondly, even though things are tight for us right now, we are still OKAY. I know waaaaaaay too many people who are struggling, don’t have stable jobs, money for groceries or even a place to live. So when I complain and bitch and moan about us not having enough money to pay off our fuel bill, I have to take a step back and remember that we had heat this winter and even when we had an issue, we were able to pay and get it fixed. I was without pay for two months but we had the savings to pay the mortgage. Grocery money is tight but we still have enough food to feed our family and WIC gives us enough formula to feed the baby.
