Every summer my family would make the 5 hour drive to our favorite camping spot. Before you keel over in surprise, know that camping to my family meant a fully equipped motor home. (come on, you really think I'd go camping??!) My dad and sister would drive the motor home up with the boat in tow. My mom and I would follow in the car. ( There had been a number of incidents in earlier years with things [wheels] flying off the boat trailer, so we decided to have mom following dad as to avoid the 3 hours spent looking for said things on the side of the highway).
Back to my original thought. Every year on the drive up, my mom and I would listen to the same tape by Barenaked Ladies. We knew every word to every song on that tape. In fact, one year we actually wore it out ( Don't worry, I went out and bought the CD). Our favorite song on that tape was the ever-popular "If I Had A Million Dollars". I have since been fascinated with that idea. What would I do if I had a million dollars?
At this point in my life, I would totally buy a house. A nice big house with a soaker tub in the master suite and a island in the kitchen. And you know what? That's about as far as a million dollars would go these days. The house itself probably wouldn't take the full million, but after I made it all pretty there would be peanuts left over. Living in a basement suite for the past 3 or 4 years has spurred much dreaming as far as a future house goes. You know what? I take it back. I wouldn't buy a nice big house, I'd build one! Now that would be sweet! Maybe next time we can chat about what one hundred million would buy.
But first, tell me what you would do with a million dollars. Post it and tag me!
