I need to clarify that my last post was hastily written, poorly thought out, and not reflective of my heart at all. While I do want an iPad, there are far more pressing financial concerns that have to be dealt with first. In my zeal over having actually touched an iPad, I neglected to think about what it might look like to others for me to be simultaneously looking for funding to cover basic needs and funding to cover what, to many people, is a luxury item. I can’t justify such a purchase right now, and I fear I may have caused people to rethink supporting us. I definitely don’t want to do that.
About those more pressing financial concerns–pray that when I take the Minivan to the shop on Monday, I can afford to pick it up. 🙂
