Day 19: More money or more time?

Can I not have both?

I guess following on from the last prompt, what I’m really after is a Star Trek economy. I don’t know how they made money obsolete, but they did.

That’d be cool.

For now, though, in this version of the universe, I’d like both please thank you.

If I have to choose, though—I have enough money to cover our basic needs, even to do our cottage renovations (although it’ll go verrrry slowly).

So I’d like more time. I’ll never regret the things I didn’t buy… and I do not want to regret spending too little time with the people I love, doing cool and silly things.

(I’m aware of the privilege I have in being able to write this, too. And I am extremely grateful.)

How about you?

Happy writing!
