Thursday Thirteen #11

Good grief, it's been a while since I've done this. Too much going on and the need to actually work have contributed, I guess. Here we go with the latest entry.

Thirteen Things Brian and I Plan to Do When We Have The Money

Most of these are sensible, practical household things, but not all of them.

1. Have the nasty carpet taken out and replace it with hardwood or laminate flooring.
2. Build a nice deck/patio area in the back yard.
3. Get a storage shed/workshop put up (probably one of the ones you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot, but big enough to have room for yard equipment and for him to do some woodworking).
4. Take a family vacation to Disney World!
5. Have a radiant heat barrier installed in the attic to help cut down on electric bills.
6. Redo the landscaping in the yard. What I have now is less than spectacular.
7. Fix all the little plumbing annoyances around the house (nothing that rises to the level of needing a repair right now, just stuff that's annoying).
8. Save more for retirement.
9. Set up an education fund for J.
10. Pay off debt faster.
11. Take a trip to England/Ireland/Scotland/Wales.
12. Get new window treatments throughout the house.
13. Corian countertops and sink for the kitchen.

I'm sure there's more, but this list will take us a good little while to work through, so it's a good start!

Lisa!!! Lisa!!! You are a kindred spirit. My lifelong dream has always been to go to Ireland, and in recent years I've added England, Scotland and Wales to that list. I've got to make this dream come true someday!
