Money Matters

Maybe we’re just typical homeowners, but somehow we manage to find at least one thing every year that costs us several thousand dollars we weren’t expecting to spend. Last year we re-landscaped the backyard and had our roof converted from cedar shakes to shingles; this year we’re replacing all the windows in the house. We’re also planning to do a Mediterranean cruise next year. Let’s just say we’re doing our part to stimulate the economy.
