We have major repairs to do on our house. We want to eventually sell it and downsize to a condo, but right now the place is run down after 40 years of living there. We almost have to start from scratch. It makes me sick thinking about it.

Probably, our annual summer vacation to Hawaii. We have a timeshare on the big island and have been going there every summer the past 10 years with our kids and grandkids. There’s nine of us now in all and me and my wife pay for everybody so it gets pretty steep.
