Sometimes I get so tired of waiting for things.
Right now, I am so tired for saving for some things. We have goals, things we want, but we are no where near reaching those goals. Sometimes, I want to say I want what I want when I want it.
Mostly, I am tired for waiting to buy a home. We are not apartment people at all. We are home people, nature people, wide open spaces people, fix it up people.
We are no where near having enough money for a house. We are no where near having enough money for a down payment for a house. But I miss having a house. We have been living in apartments for the last 2 years due to life changes. A job loss for him, then a new job for him. A move and resignation for her, then a new job for her. In the past 2 years transitions have occurred, and they have been big.
Looking around, I see people buying homes, and putting little to no money down. They throw caution to the wind and go to Hawaii on a fabulous vacation, while putting it all on their credit cards. Sometimes, I want to be like that. I want to be that person who lives the fabulous life like they do. But, that is just not our style.
I know that delayed gratification is a sign of fiscal maturity. I know that mentally, but sometimes, I get so tired of waiting and being responsible.
What about you? What are you hoping for, saving for, wishing you could have right now?
