We have been doing some updating and repairs on our house. Pretty expensive, as we expected. We are spending all of this money so we are comfortable in the house, and yet we could have spent the money on nice vacations.
On vacations we can have someone else take out the trash and make the bed and change the towels., we can eat different foods that I don't have to cook or clean up after, we can visit new places and learn about history and people.
On the other hand. At home I know where everything is. The furniture and bed have been chosen because I like them. I don't run the risk of bring home bedbugs. I have my cats.
Yet vacations are nice. The beach, the traditions.
