I know I've been a little hit and miss this week. I'm not feeling hugely inspired these days. Maybe it's time for another Q & A post? What do you want to know about me, my Beloved Ent, the wee-lings? About our life on the not-so-frozen flatland? Let me know via the comment section below or via email. I'll answer them as best I can in a post toward the middle of next week.
I've been daydreaming a lot the last couple of days.
My Beloved is still looking for a new job, and a posting that came up this week would, if he were to get the position, give us a huge leg up financially. I'm talking HUGE leg up. I'm not counting my chickens before they're hatched or anything, but it certainly is nice to think about what we could do rather than what we can't afford to do.
Like which debt would we pay off first? Credit card? Line of credit? Car loan?
How much could we increase our monthly contributions to our church? To the wee-lings' college funds? To our (currently non-existent) retirement fund?
Could we buy a new house? Something with three bedrooms, two baths, a finished basement with a comfy murphy bed for my mom, and a kitchen with an island and lots of cupboards?
Maybe we could even get cable tv again?
Could I afford a new bra when I need one? ;)
Some people say that daydreaming can be harmful. That it leads to dissatisfaction with what you have now. I disagree. Do I like being broke all the time? No. Does the potential of a significantly increased income bring me pleasure? Yes.
But does that mean that I'm not incredibly thankful for what we have? Heck no! I have been in much more depressing states, financially speaking, in my lifetime. And if I can't have my dream house, well then thank the good Lord above that I have my dream man and my two precious babies. We are all healthy, and happy, and that's what makes daydreaming fun. Imagining how the great things in our lives can only get better.
What are you daydreaming about these days?
