Thank you BYU

I'm feeling financially sound at the moment. For the past few weeks I've been worrying incessantly about our financial situation since we have, um, zero income for four months and a lot of unexpected Egypt-related expenses that keep coming up. And the fact we have to move back, pay a security deposit and rent on an apartment, move in starting from scratch since we got rid of our furniture, etc.

But... today our SMART grants came through! We didn't think we'd be getting them for the spring/summer. But we did. And now we can eat something other than lentils and rice (though I bought them in bulk for the summer already, so we'll probably still eat them every meal... we'll just enjoy a 4-pound ice cream cone once in a while).

And, on a smaller scale, we thought we'd be paying $50 extra to the program, but it turns out the program can pay it (probably from the money they took from us for the club fees).

We must've paid our tithing or something.


  1. Amen! Tithing is where it's at.

  2. tithing is so great
    and so are grants, why are they always such a surprise? like tax returns after you have a baby.
