Pay off the house. Then, make sure I had enough for Jenna's college. The rest would be stuffed away in an account somewhere as an "emergency only" fund until I retired.
I wouldn't have cancelled my planned anniversary trip for things that came up for work.
I requested the day off months in advance (way before the said meeting was even being thought of). I even wrote it on the calendar on my office wall.
Wouldn't you know it, after them insisting how important it was for me to be at a job meeting, I cancelled the trip and went to the meeting instead. Three weeks later they laid me off.
I'd say that was a bit of a dick move on their part.
