What Would You Do?

I think people have common things they would do if they came into money like by winning the lottery. Buy a house and car, pay off bills (unless they'd already been to credit repair services) .. maybe take a vacation, travel. Am I right?

Me and Mr. Skittles were talking about this not too long ago. What would we do? Of course no one knows for sure what they'd do but here's what we came up with..

We like getting away so we thought instead of buying a new place, we'd buy an extra place. Maybe some land on a lake about an hour away from where we are. Put a trailer and build a pole barn there. Nothing fancy. Have a dock with a pontoon boat. Someplace we could go on weekends and vacations. Someplace we could have the family over, too. Do the bonfire and sing-along thing.

Ok. We'd probably get a camper or RV and do some traveling, too. =)

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I'd pay of all my student loans.... and give my parents and sisters some money then retire on top of a mountain in log cabin, keep enough $ to get by and use the rest of the money for scholarships... but not scholarships for the smartest or specialist or most disadvantaged kid...I'd give it to all the average kids like I was - The one's who don't have money for school and don't fit into all those scholarship categories! ;-)

School and travel

I've said this for years -and YEARS -if I ever were to win the lottery, I'd buy the biggest freaking Winnebago ever made and then, take off to see the USA. (Anyone remember the advertising son for the old Dinah Shore show -"See the USA, in a Chevrolet" well, that would be me except in that big ole honking Winnebago! Pay off this house and while on "tour" with the Winnebago, I'd have contractors come in and add on to the house -expand the upstairs so the bedrooms are larger, more/better closet space, add on to the downstair to give myself a bedroom/sitting/tv/craft rooom all rolled into one -with enough space for my bed, furniture, along with my sewing machine, all my craft stash stuff (fabric, floss, yarns, etc), my Hammond Organ AND a nice big, really big that is, computer all to myself. (One I wouldn't have to share with anyone else and could camp on it all day if I wanted to do so!) Oh the things I would do to that room, to this house -oh the places I would go too while all that work would be getting done as well!
Yeah, isn't it nice that even in one's dotage, dreams still take place, don't they? (Or maybe that's because I AM just a dreamer at heart?)
