This weeks challenge is "Dare to Dream!", so I'm gonna dream big. Here goes:
My most immediate financial needs would be to pay off my family's bills. When we pay those off there will be so much more wiggle room in our budget, which would lead to the second bullet.
A new truck...we live on a farm, and the basic pickup truck (which is what we have now) just doesn't have the "umph" needed to haul, pull, push, etc... the stuff that we have to haul, pull, & push. My poor husband's truck has over 200,000 miles on it. The AC goes in and out, the radio doesn't work anymore, the windshield is cracked, and the front passenger window doesn't go all the way down (courtesy of our daughter driving the truck up and almost on top of a fence post....huge dent in door).It's still chugging along, but...
I would also like to travel. I grew up overseas and would love to do some international traveling. My ancestry is largely Scottish, and my husband's grandfather immigrated from Scotland. We really want to see Scotland some day. I would also like to visit Okinawa (I was born there) and Germany (I lived there off and on until I started high school). I loved living in Germany, and I would really like my family to see where I grew up.
And finally, I would like to be able to make regular donations to a couple of organizations: St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We have been so blessed to have healthy children, and these organizations are wonderful in all the good work they do.
So there you have it. Probably not the most glamorous dreams in the world, but they're mine!
