Expect that money is in the burger summit is to live light and you all of those things that it grandmother didn't get to do. He won't regret it there's no way the you can regret spending now.

And an evening and and trying to do you know put away in trying to life that you guys want to have an want to build. You're still going to be like an alien doing all of those things. I thank you just do what you think of me believes we've been over the current. Content Egypt says the universe. Through. My grandpa. Just laid down a beautiful soft rather you know cushion. Or that we don't that we are a little pull it. Late you don't sealer I once you're not using it as a cushion you want you you wanted it's eager cushion.

I feel like it's a question for us to like live likes to that the missile the you know I mean like I feel like that can't until it what you're seeing is. It exactly what I wanna you the cushion did not I don't know. Question this is losing its eating at me because I kind of I'm kind of on your side because it's found money. But I also have a little bit of fear because yesterday. Before your great huh. Died you were conservative work and you handled your your finances now are you gonna be this way any time all we got a taciturn. Every time you don't. Lol. Okay yeah I know and we've never we've never done that I don't think this is a essentially a changing light you know I'm saying I'm saying that like. This money has come at such a crucial time in our lives and I think it should like. We are so young and so like it. Able to live life to the fullest right now. These are the memory that I want to pass out when I'm sixty you know I mean yeah he's gripping it maybe you remember. We believe we can still do things I just I mean I.

And warrior you're still you still had a cushion to do it started with its decent as a medical disaster or need any added it's one of the accepted yeah. I don't like to not not. On your side I just. I just I had this when somebody has a philosophical. Switch. It's I can see how would steer your future partner make sure no you know you're at the same guy kind of though I building a future Doug yesterday we are sick person. Now. Speaking in the grand scheme I still am though I still am a Saber you already like 200%. Agree with or should be an emergency fund or like a you know something you have. You could adjust and click straight. Like how we how that money set aside. This money list. I think she's so lucky to have you know be a little bit farther down the road and and be able to use that money for something like that but I know there right now. The cool we have ever done so perfectly in line. But let's take the trip while everything is so good you know right well let's let's really go see the world while we know things are good while we are you know and it's hard.

She's in that eight and are not preparing tribute to her and I know liked her when I am forty years ordered something. I mean it like the it speaking of I think it's like the I want it like we have a cage into decay and now it covered in ankle. And it's like an. Yeah I I. I am. Simon makes I. I understand Jessica and coming around and having Christian and he ain't. But I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow or even in ten years he had they want to hear it either I think firm. Red brick and then you Don you don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow or in ten years. I'm like your house is going to be LA cash if you guys want to have to hand on my client and then they can grant and Eddie Herrera. And that's maybe not something you want to have to worry about you wanna go on your chance and have a good time and sell into money don't buy your savings bank.

What do you slap down your money at that at and it travel agencies for your European vacation and that plane goes down in the Al although this is on how we just. Money we'd be ain't rich and be alive. And but could I. The argument that you don't know what's going to happen. Is exactly my argument we really mean in a nutshell I and you can stack it like and I'm appealing it the opposite way. Ray I know I'm just and everybody's going to give my car and I was like right you can get hit by in Europe when you're traveling. So maybe you sent a trap. Apple outlook world EA. It's probably written here people traveling but all that's well here's how much size as an arduous trek when your old though I mean it's all about. Taken man sleeping on a few jokes you know I shot. So the that's not the reality people 52 news he makes all folks Patrick. Oh I I. So I've got very similar situation happened there are black I read no least stated a lot. In our marriage but we also spell into quite a bit of money. And we have we I lied and I got my way we are gonna planned a vacation leave we're planning that we get at eight or bad. Two years and I don't feel good about it right you don't wanna spend that money went and there was no flatly we canceled everything I'd snuck by and let her have her way. And I tell you would know that it's hit a month later she had a blood clot can we didn't know about whom and she had been out on glory or agree. And then I would shortly after that I got in the car wreck and I got to get back out out there have been a vacation in the world that was worse. This safety and there's nothing like that in a waiting room. Why why why I'm here you're wondering how you're gonna pay no built and how you're gonna take share hurt while I'm not at all he had read and I'm not trying to.
