Did everyone recover from tax day? Got your extensions filed? Just kidding. Not really.
Taxes always make me think of money. And how nice it would be to have some. And then I fantasize about what I would do with it if I did have some.
My children are starting to get to the ages where I would really like to give them experiences rather than stuff. My house is full of stuff. I am tired of stuff, quite frankly.
What I would not be tired of would be a week in Hawaii lounging on the beach. Or a fantastic ski vacation where we end each day lounging by a roaring fire.
Except when I look around my house, I also see an outdated, gross linoleum floor in my kitchen. I see the blueberry wallpaper that was ugly and out of style before the glue even dried on it. Maybe I would love cooking if I was doing it in a beautiful, remodeled kitchen?
Still, though, having some extra money laying around to do some much needed home renovations would be really nice. $10,000 could go a long way to really sprucing this place up.
It could also buy an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime vacation for my family. We could make memories that would become the stories of family gatherings for years to come. Traveling with my kids is no longer the torturous event it used to be. Both girls can pull their own suitcases even. Think of the fun we could have!
Seriously, though, what would I pick? If I had a hypothetical 10K laying around, would I rather do a home renovation or take a fabulous vacation with my family?
Lisa said she would DEFINITELY do a home renovation project, no question about it.
Everyone who has ever been in my home is praying that I will have the same answer, but honestly, y’all I think I would pick the trip.
What do our Dose Peeps think? Would you rather have $10,000 for a home renovation project or take a fabulous vacation with your family? And not in the future, but right now. You can’t spend the 10K paying off bills or saving it. It must be spent in one of these two ways.
