If I Won the Lottery

This is just a bad month, expense-wise, which of course means I start thinking about what it would be like to have expendable income.

I would build a pool in the backyard.


I would have an outdoor kitchen.


I would have a Nook, and NO books on my wishlist, because they'd be on my Nook.


New laptops for everyone in the family.


A cruise to Alaska.


A big screen TV.


Front loading washer and dryer.


What would you get?

Expendable income...I've heard of it...what's it look like?

This is so funny, my husband and I were talking about this very thing just a couple of days ago! Here's how part of it went:

Me: "And you'd probably have a problem with this, but there are a lot of people I'd want to give money to."

Him: "No, yeah, totally. Like, your brother."

Me: "Yeah, family, but I have friends who are hurting, too. We'd give them all $9,999 so we didn't have to pay gift tax."

Him: "No, we'd pay the tax. We'd, like, give your brother $250,000."

Me: "What? Okay, we can't win the lottery. We'd end up getting a divorce."

Number Two, in the back seat: "What? Divorce?"

Number One: "Did we win the lottery?"

Kelly, right? Every time I think we'll start to have some....

Natalie, LOL on what your kids picked up on in that conversation!

I realized most of the things I listed are things for the home. Yes, I am a sad homebody.

It's not sad! At least you picked fun things. I was all, "Pay off the house, build a deck, redo the bathroom, invest for retirement, set aside for college." Jim was all "buy some land, custom design a gigantic new house..." LOL I'm totally boring! :)

LOL... I agree with almost everything you listed except I have the Washer/Dryer (got them last year ... a dream come true *G*) and I have a Nook (but it's nowhere NEAR full yet, so my TBB list lives on).

I'd also have more than one home, so no matter what season I wanted to be in, I could go there ... in my private jet.

I'd also have all the unwanted hair on my body lasered off -- NO MORE SHAVING!!!! Woo hoo!!!

I think I need to go out an buy a lottery ticket.
