Have you ever had a moment that made you feel very very poor? Being a young married couple, with a rapidly growing child, and never ending mortgage payments and home repairs, we feel poor a lot. But, honestly for the most part, we feel very very blessed. We never really go without any necessities, and we get to do fun things as a family all the time. I honestly never feel truly poor, just very blessed.
However, yesterday, Ash and I had a moment where we felt dirt poor and it was humbling and hilarious at the same time.
We always do family night once a week on Mondays. Which pretty much means we dedicate Monday evening to spending time together as a family. This last Monday we met up with my family to play a round of lazer tag and black light put put golf as our family night activities. Being the ice cream obsessed human being that I am, I suggested to Ash that after we finish our activities, we should take Harper out to get a treat (*cough* ice cream *cough*). Ash said it sounded like a great idea, boo-ya!
So just as planned we played lazer tag, and some mini golf and the next thing we knew we were getting in the car to get a treat then head home.
Then we noticed something.
Our gas tank was pretty much empty.
Like... we had 18 miles left empty.
Which wouldn't have been a problem, except that the location we drove to, for our activities was 20 miles away from our home.
