Ok, so you probably think I'm crazy, but I know why the weather has been so cold and rainy lately. No, I'm not a weather person or scientist or anything, but I have a pretty good theory. Actually, it's more than a theory. I know. I have been praying and praying for help with our bills and finances. We need to save as much money as we can to pay for Zeke's tuition in August. We have cut out EVERY unnecessary expense so far and haven't been able to find anything else to get rid of.
Usually our utility bill is about $140 each month, but during the summer with our sprinklers and air conditioner running, our bill has been as high as $286! YIKES. I know all of you out there have been praying for some nice hot summer weather, but I really think this is Heavenly Father's way of answering my prayer for now (sorry everyone). In order to save money this summer, I was not even going to use our air conditioner, well, I've been so blessed because I haven't had to. I was even considering just letting the lawn go and see how it looked in July.... well, it's nice and GREEN and I haven't watered it once! So if you get a little bummed when you hear the weather forecast... maybe you can think of me saying YESSSS!!!! every time it rains... and you can smile (maybe).
