Finish the sentence Friday--if I had a Million



Everyone thinks  about it  once in a while: what would happen if I had a million dollars.

Most of my dreams are simple, really, get myself and loved ones out of debt, set aside college money for the kids, only have to
work to my minimum retirement date and then walk away.

  But there are a few things I would do like sell this house and  move to that farm my husband has always wanted. (see the part about early retirement).

Have a travel account, both to visit places I've never seen(hello Dublin, London and Athens);  as well as friends I never get to see.

Also a crafting acct for my husband to keep him in a all the wool and leathercrafting toys he needs.

At the suggestion of the Girl, purchase a large supply of Nook chargers because the device is great but the chargers suck.

Indians season tickets.

A fully equipped writing room and library.

A life time subscription to Ancestry,com so I can nail the family tree down once and for all.

A small donation to all the worthy charities that have flooded my inbox all these years. I've always wanted to do that.

In the  end to me it's not so much about life style as security. These are the things that would allow me to feel happy and secure.

  1. I agree - it would be so nice to just lift the burden of the debt and the mortgage and the "how are we going to pay for that?"

    1. And the girl and I both have Nooks and one charger between us most of the time. Some day she'll go off to college and then where will we be? Thank you for the link up.
