This sounds like a good job for where you are now. The best thing to do right now is to use your current job to build your resume and skills. Is there any way you can move up in the company you're at right now? Is there some sort of management/leadership position you could work towards to increase your skill set?

If you did go the option of getting a degree, do some research to figure out what you like. Or, if you don't pursue a degree, figure out how to maximize your current skill set and job to create an awesome resume you can use to get a different job in the future.

It sounds like you don't have any credentials or are qualified to do anything. If you only have a high school education, expecting to support a family, a home and expensive trips/vacations is unrealistic. Your expectation should not be more than minimum wage and small raises as you gain time within a company. If you want the kind of money that bring all that you want, you have to earn it. That means getting educated and qualified to earn the kind of money you seem to want. Determine what you think you can do and what interests you and apply to take such a course.
