There are frozen foods to that, meals to plan, laundry to get caught up on and birthday gifts to buy! So much to do this week that my head is spinning and growing dizzy from it all! (and nope, the dizziness likely has nothing to do with the fact that both of my ears are plugged due to allergies and so my equal librium may be compromised!)
In other news, we did not win the Idaho Powerball amount. So sad. We had such honorable plans for the money too. Normally we don’t play, but when it’s over 200 Million, we sort of feel required to. Ya know? Like, it’s our civic duty…
Today’s list is, in honor of being great big Lottery losers- What we’d do if we won…
1) Buy a sensible, but cute, house.
2) Buy my mom a small house and move her here.
3) Pay off Chris’s parents house.
4) Pay off my car and give it away, give Chw’s car away and buy him a small truck and me an xterra.
5) go on a nice, stress free vacation.
My husband the work-a-holic wants to keep his job (he announces, because you know this is never going to happen so let’s be totally practical about it! LOL) I said I wanted the majority of the rest of it to be divided between investments and a series of accounts… An acct. for Genny; an account with X amount automatically deposited for us, monthly; and that sort of account for my mom. Her health isn’t good and she wouldn’t have to work again. We would probably, at some point, adopt another child.
You know, because it’s never going to happen- but it doesn’t hurt to dream!
Back in the early stages of our marriage, we spent hours planning out our lottery winnings (which we didn’t play because we were dirt poor)… Those were some of the best times from those years. Funny how dreaming is such a beautiful thing. So hopeful and Whimsical…
