I had a dream that I got a $5,000 tax refund. The check was in my hands– 5,000 dollars. In my dream I could do whatever I wanted with it. I could have bought the big, fancy digital camera I am YEARNING for. I could have bought a fridge for the new house. I could have bought huge pots for my upcoming container vegetable garden. And, oh, the books I would buy.

Unfortunately, even if dreams did come true, all that 5,000 dollars would do is pay off the credit card and sit around until March waiting to be part of the down payment.

Oh, Nikon D40/D50/D80/whatever–someday you will be mine. (That day is when I have disposable income. That happens, right?)
