Me: I’ve been itching to have our own home since the start of the year. If only it were that simple! I’ve really been longing to have our own home. I want us to move to a bigger space. But not too big that our family won’t be able to see each other often. But small enough to still keep it cozy and homey. This is really my immediate dream for my family. Even though I convinced myself that we’ll need to stay put for now, at the back of my mind I still want our dream home. To tell you the truth, I want it as soon as possible. I want my dream home to be a reality NOW. Oh I want it sooo bad!!!!
Me (in answer): I will not rush into this. We need enough money to spend on the lot, on building the house, on finishing the house and on buying the furnishings for our home. We need time to save on it. NO need to rush. Save, save and save. We’ll do this big project when we have enough money. And no need to settle for anything less. Buy the best for everything in our dream home – that is the goal. We don’t want to scrimp on the building materials. We need to build a home that will last us a lifetime (ours and our (child)ren’s children).
Was the argument settled? Not yet! LOL!
