A friend of mine and I were day dreaming out loud about what we would do if we won the lottery. We laughed about the trips we would take, the shoes we would buy, the peace we would feel with millions of dollars in the bank.
It got me thinking about more realistic goals. We have no bills except for our house....what if we paid off the house? How would our lives be different without a mortgage payment? We wouldn't be thinner, or better looking. The kitchen sink would still be full of dirty dishes...but it would be our sink.
With a bit of extra money, we could take a family vacation somewhere that is not grandma's house. We could take a honeymoon at last. It makes me smile to think of the small things which would be easier if we had no mortgage. We're getting close enough to daydream about it, and it got me wondering what would you do if your house belonged to you and your paycheck were yours to spend, how would you spend it? Daydream with me a bit.
