We've been in savings mode for almost two years. We've made a LOT of good progress and we still have miles to go.
But I gotta say, I've been slacking a bit.
I am getting impatient and I really want to switch from savings mode to acquisition mode. :)
This will all probably sound bratty and selfish and ungrateful, but just to get this out of my system, I want to write down everything I have been wanting lately. And I want to preface it all with this: I know I am phenomenally blessed and if nothing changes in my life for the rest of forever, I would be a heckuva happy girl.
New headboard for my room that doesn't cover the window
Car repairs - my front signals don't work and my right side mirror doesn't work
New counter tops (Formica would be fine)
New pots and pans
Repaint and redecorate probably about 50% of my house
And a remodel of the master bedroom, the downstairs bedroom, and well...maybe I should just get a new house. :)
I wonder if it's the fact that I am home all day in my house now that so much about it is driving me crazy?
Back in March, we got a new fridge. Oh man how I hated my old fridge and it finally gave out so I had no choice but to get a new one. Justin also got a small inheritance that worked out to be just the amount we needed for a fridge. And I love it.
It barely, barely fit. There isn't a centimeter of wiggle room on either side of the fridge and Justin and my brother had to remove and raise the above-the-fridge cabinet.
Now if only my carpet would go out so I would be forced to replace it. Hehehe.
And the whole time I've been thinking about this post, I've had the Mary Chapin Carpenter song "Passionate Kisses" going through my head: Shouldn't I have it? Shouldn't I have it? Shouldn't I have all of this and passionate kisses from you?
What's on your wish list?
