Comfortably Off

She actually won the lottery. Not millions. But thousands, enough to make some changes. She walked through her home, taking stock.

She would have the bathroom totally renovated. She didn’t mind the bedroom, but would get a new mattress. The downstairs floors could use refinishing. Maybe upgrade the appliances, at least get the dishwasher repaired.

That was not what she was thinking of replacing.
