THE FRIDAY POST V

January 22, 2016


      Well, unfortunately it's a dead give away I wasn't one of the lucky ducks who snagged some serious life changing cash in last weeks Power Ball drawing. Waking up last Thursday to our Power ball ticket crumbled in a pathetic ball atop the trash was a punch in the gut. No I didn't think we had a chance, but neither did the people who actually won. That's the beauty of it.

      My gal pal, Stephanie, and I got to thinking. What if we did actually score some of those millions? Even one million perhaps? Clearly until you actually live a situation like that, you really have no idea what you'd do with it, but the prompt was exceptionally amusing to fantasize about.

Future - Besides the obvious paying off our cars and what not, I know a nice chunk of this would be set aside. I wouldn't allow myself to touch it or go on mindless shopping sprees with it. 

Instead, I'd like to see some of it go to something that mattered. I live near a very rough community. Full of crime and poverty. I'd like to think I could influence something, that I could make some sort of a difference and make this area livable again. 

Home - On a personal note, I don't care for modern homes. To me, there's nothing special about the craftsmanship or architecture. I'm an old soul who likes to feel the history of a home when I walk through it's doors. I see far too many developments popping up locally where I'd need a GPS to find my home because they're all identical. I'd like to think if I were blessed to come into money, I'd find a diamond in the rough, restore it to it's old self and live there forever. There are tons of historic homes around here with boarded up windows. Heck, I'd probably get into the house flipping business if the opportunity presented itself.

Baby No. 2 - Fingers crossed that regardless of lotto winnings baby No. 2 will be making an appearance 2017. Joshua and I are more than ready, we just want to have all our ducks in a row. But hey, if we win the lottery tomorrow, this will be happening way sooner. (;


      I'd like to think I would stay humble. Having money your entire life, or at fate's generosity shouldn't define you. I'd like to think that if I were to backslide into the pit of brattitude that someone would slap the hell out of me and bring me back to reality. One of my favorite quotes out there says, "Too many people spend money they haven't earned. To buy things they dont want. To impress people they don't like." Always remember to stay humble friends! 


What would you do if you had a million dollars?
