Stimulate Our Home Improvement

We got "the letter" in the mail. Some of you have probably already received such letter followed by this wonderful "gift" from our fabulous government. We're due to get our stimulus payment on or around the 18th of this month. We're getting back a whopping $1800. Now there are all sorts of things that we could do with this check to stimulate the economy, I'm sure. Our $1800 would probably make some retailers go wild. But, being as we're expecting our third child and we really don't have a "bedroom" to put her in we are more than likely going to use this check to remodel our home. We have an extra room now. It is currently being used as an office. There is no door to this room, it is directly off the hallway by the front door and there is no closet. For now we'll put the baby there but the plans are to turn the garage (which currently holds a bunch of junk) into a room for her. This will be very near to our bedroom which will work out perfectly. The trouble is that I just have to get hubby motivated. His current track record for home improvements isn't so great. We still have an incomplete master bedroom and bathroom two years later!

Good for you honey. We don't think we quality for any money. Oh well, we would have just saved it anyway. Have a great day. :)
