A coworker of mine was talking about her husband’s new job where he received a $5000 sign-on bonus, and how she hoped she could now take the family to Disney World. I didn’t get the Disney trip when I was growing up, but I sometimes think about it for my children. Personally, the thought doesn’t excite me, but if it’s going to mean something for my kids, well, then I’m open to the idea.
I wonder, though, maybe there is something else out there that we all could enjoy? Like, say, traveling overseas? Ireland, The Netherlands, Spain, France – these places stand like magical wonderlands in my mind!
