A Bit of a Rant
Jenny & Corbin sent me Disney World pictures! I love this one of Corbin and Mickey:
Bo & I went to Amarillo yesterday to some open houses. We saw some really pretty ones, with some really not-so-pretty price tags. LOL. --Ugh. It's hard being a tightwad at times like this. I really want to be wise with our money, but at the same time, well you know, those pretty houses sure are calling. What bugs me is the property taxes on the darn things! After you pay the high price tag, then you've got to shell out SEVERAL thousand a year for property taxes. For one thing, we don't even have a kid in the public school system. We have to pay tuition for home schooling and then pay the property school taxes too. --Oh well, that's just the way it is. Can't change it, might as well accept it and move on. I'm sure we will find a lovely house and everything will be just fine. I wonder what we'll end up doing. Going the conservative route and get a nice, but cheaper house, and having money left over each month to do a few things or letting our predilection for expensive houses (expensive to us) get the best of us, and being broke from now on. (How'd you like that big word?) Who knows? --It might be a good investment. What do you think we should do????
