I got wealth envy and warmth envy. I'm envious of people with huge amounts of money and people who live in Florida. I'm also envious of people who can afford to buy a Prius and people who own Toyota Rav4s.

I have to agree on warmth envy, but not the wealth part. Those who have piles and piles of money have more to lose than us middle classers. I was going to buy a RAV4 a couple of years ago, but the seats weren't comfortable. Never tried a Prius, but they're good looking cars. My latest wannahave is a Kia Soul. They're cute, but I bet the seats are even smaller than the RAV. I'm talking leg support, not the hiney part. My sis has a '95 RAV and she loves it to pieces - not to mention she's two inches shorter than I am.

I'm pretty happy where we are, financially speaking. We can pay our bills, set aside money in savings and still have some left over before the next influx of cash. Simplicity in life is the best of all worlds, truly.
