Well, we are into our 2nd week of FPU and we saved $45 towards our $1000 emergency fund during the 1st week. However- 1st thing Saturday before Labor Day, our 7 yo fridge conked out! Umm, why oh why does "Mr. Murphy" always have to rain on my parade? Anyway, $200 and several hours later it was "fixed". Fast forward to later that evening when said fridge began making funky noise again and once more conked out! Now you know what happens on the holiday weekends-right? Right-no repairman till Tuesday so we ended up spending more money than intended on meals for the weekend-teenage boys insist on eating!
Tuesday-same song, repairman comes at no charge, replaces part and several hours later the fridge is down for the count! Needless to say, we have given up on fixing it (he says must be compressor). However, wonderful FPU leaders have loaned their extra fridge to us indefinitely. We are thankful for them! Now, if you were keeping track-savings of $45, emergency of $200, new balance -$155. Oh well, there's still time left in our month! Phillipians 4:13 I CAN through Christ!
