Life is not what we always want . . .
We moved into our house in Dec., right before Christmas. We love it here and are very happy in our little home. We love the ward, neighborhood and room. Kids like the friends, room to play and the pool. Only one problem - a house is a big expense! We have lived many places and our last home spoiled us. We lived at ASU East in a 4-bd 2-ba house with free cable, free high speed internet and free water. We had only cell phones (because we were hardly ever home) and now reality has hit us. We are paying for the above mentioned items and we have a land line. Our rent at ASU was only $800 (I know, cheap!) and obviously, the payment here is much higher! It all pays off in the end but still not easy to swallow or aceept. We've breen doing a few things to the house as well, like painting, moving cupboards, landscaping, etc. I have hung up some curtains, and painted cupboards too. This month has been the tightest (financially) since we moved in and since the savings is not like it should be - we are struggling. I have a lot of work lined up but it's not immediate. We'll make it - we always do but I hate wondering how it will work. UG!!!!
