Actually it is nice. I worked hard all my life. Now I own a business and make enough money that my wife and I each buy what what we want. It makes getting presents impossible. She asked me what I want for my birthday and I had no clue. Same for her.

We don't run with the jet set or take lavish vacations, and blow money on stupid stuff. We live in a house that we paid off years ago. No car payments. No kids, no debt at all.

I have been so broke I ate rice and potatoes for a week or two just to save enough to pay the utility bills. I survived on less than a nickle a day for food. It sucked. I got a second job and worked a lot of overtime to get ahead.

I only get a couple of years out of a set of tires for my 911, because I autocross and run on the race track and they eats up tires pretty fast. My wife never even blinks when I get a new set of tires.
