I watch Oprah today about classes. I think I am in the middle class after watching that show, but I don’t think of ourselves as a class.
It made me sad to hear how people who supposedly were friends, turn their noses up on people once the money was gone. We don’t have many friends we can count them on one hand if that, so I know no one hangs around us for what we have to offer.
This show just get my mind going on how complicated our lives are, and how when the boat hits bottom it is usually too late. That is what happened to us we lived making ends meet on credit for so long, it was a little bit at a time. It added up for us to a whopping 35,000.00 approx debt. Now like many we have learned our lesson hopefully and once we get out of the mess we have gotten ourselves in we will never get back into it.
I don’t see myself as a class, now I see myself as living beneath our means, knowing that if the economy goes up or down we can ride the wave.

By governemnt standards we are definatly the lower class….but we are not suffering. We have good health, food, shelter and a job. PTL! We too don’t have many “friends”. Where do you find us on friday night? Hanging out together as a family, usually at home or on an outing of some sort. For us, I don’t think it’s the money issue, becuase I suspect most think we’re loaded since we own a business (we’re not loaded), it’s more of an issue that we’re like super conservitave, more old fashioned or something like that. We think and do things differently than 99% of the people we associate with. 🙂
