What's on your list?

November 3rd, 2007 at 04:22 am

I'm a pretty simple person. I don't want a lot. A roof over my head, a car to get me around, food to eat, health, a job, and happy kids. When I look at that list it's really not a whole lot. Looking again, maybe it is everything.

I wonder what other people have on there list and I wonder if it is enough for them.

Do other people go home and say "I really don't want to eat chicken soup again today?" Sometimes that is exactly what I do. I know I'll have to eat it eventually, but maybe, for just today, I make grilled cheese and ham sandwiches. Or do they always stick to their list?

I wanted to go on a cruise this year. It is still on my list. I also want to go to a theme park with the kids and get a family picture taken. It is still on the list. The family picture has become much more important now that my Pop has passed away.

I wonder what it would be like if I had money - like the Hilton family. Would my life be so different? Would my list change so much? I can't imagine it really being that much different. I guess maybe my house would be bigger, the kids would dress better and I wouldn't have to always take that one serving of leftovers to work the next day for lunch.

I don't know. My kids being happy is pretty high up on my list. I don't know if having it easier would make them that much happier. Just in case I'll keep playing the lotto every once in a while. Embarrassment)

I guess, overall, I'm pretty happy with my list.

    The only things on my list (that I don't have) are:
    1. Roth IRA
    2. A couple brown anoles

    Seriously - that's my list! I'd love to have more money, but I'd only spend it on those around me that don't have much. There just isn't anything I really want right now! I may have to cave in at some point and get a new car, but not because I want it. I need a car to get to work. I have a roof, food, health, a job, etc. My list is just those things I currently don't have.

    MANY times I'll be eating my lunch at work (yes, the same thing AGAIN) and wish I had the nice sandwiches my coworkers bought. It's not that big a deal though. I have food. I wont starve and I didn't spend at least $6 on lunch.

    I really don't think I could change if I had a lot of money. I'm too used to being the way that I am. Smile

    I would love to have my own house, but for the most part I am happy

    Security is far and away the #1 thing on my list. Which is awful, because it counts on guarantees and there are no such things. Security was also what I was hungering for when I was making $12/hour and now that I make much more than that... do I have it? No. Job Status, health, positive net worth: everything seems so fragile and precious. #2 on my list would be a support network of friends who could help and whom I could help.

    Hi Barbara!

    I just wanted to tell you that you will get through this. I also wanted to tell you of a man that my husband has found out about and to tell you about him. His name is Dave Ramsey and if you already know about him, then you don't have to read anymore.

    He is all about getting rid of debt permanently and never use credit cards ever again. After the debt, you would be using cash and never credits cards ever again. We are in so much debt and never are able to save for anything, even college for our 2 little girls. We are starting next week and hope to be debt free in about 2 years. If you are interested in finding out more, that is if you don't know anything about him or his ministry, then go to his website at www.daveramsey.com. I hope this helps you alot. Plus I don't know where you are with your finances.

    Good luck with it and hope Christmas brings you alot of peace in you and your families lives.

    God Bless you all!!!!
