Consider carefully before that first call to the local contractor: Can your marriage take it?
Stacey Sommers certainly hoped so...but it was looking a little questionable. After the stunning news that her uncle had passed away and left her his dog (aptly named Dog) and a quarter of a million dollars, her penny-pinching, fiscally responsible husband was practically gloating at how their already amply funded golden years would be further enhanced.
They'd saved for that rainy day, and now it was hereliterally with their 1950s-style house falling down around their ears. Was it better to live for now or be a gazillionaire at your funeral? Stacey wanted to remodel; Brad wanted to save. What was a woman to do?
Make the call. After all, it was her money. Then watch, as the walls came tumbling down, how things started to rearrange themselves....
