Last night Will and worked out a rough plan of how long it would take to save enough money to put a down payment on a house. This is not something that's going to happen this year, or next for that matter, but talking about it, and making plans, is the first step. I've been dreaming of a lot lately, and doing a little financial planning makes me feel like I'm one step closer to the dream being a reality. Then this morning, I got a call from our landlord saying they will be destroying an entire wall in the kitchen this morning to fix a plumbing issue. I suppose this is ironic, as I dream of revamping a kitchen, yet I'm annoyed that I have to live in a construction zone for the next few days. It'll be a good test I suppose, although having absolutely no control over what's happening is slightly annoying. Maybe they'll replace our gross sink and Formica countertops while they're in there... one can dream, right?
