I have a confession to make.... And my husband is livid about it, but here goes... I am embarrassed to admit that we live in a trailer. I hadn’t really thought of just how embarrassed until a friend from high school emailed me and told me they would be in the area and wanted to meet for dinner. I have to say I feel I can’t have them over because I live in a trailer.
For those of you who are American, am I alone here? I swear I have tried to say I don’t feel this way, I have tried to look at it like a stage in our life and I have nothing to be embarrassed about… But I am. Allah forgive me, I am. I know this is really materialistic and such, but to be honest I would feel better if we were renting an apartment. Just goes to show that the whole streotype about trailers is engrained in my head. To be honest we have a nice house, masha'Allah. Wood floors, 2000 square feet, fenced yard.... I don't know what my damage is.
Ugh, I feel ill.
Breathe, Dammit, Breathe!
