year of husband's salary. We've rubbed pennies together for so long that my imagination has gone off the deep end. I've recarpeted my entire house, installed new front & back door steps, new master bedroom furniture, called in someone to mudjack my front sidewalk & install leaf guards on our gutters. Additionally, I've had a back door installed & new flooring for my kitchen, bathrooms & halls. (Okay maybe not the entire year's salary but it seems that way.) Do you think I've missed anything? Fortunately, I'm not going off the deep end - buying paint for our garage door & trim; going to start feeding the birds again, some shrubs for the yard & join the Y this coming fall. And I've joined a golf league! I'm so proud of my restraint - wish the tweedles had the same.
