What I’d Do With a Million Dollars


I love playing this game! Our family has done this off and on over the years. First, of course, pay off the mortgage and all debts. Then, pay off our daughters’ debts. Then, since I drive a 1989 car, I’d like a newer, better one! I’m close to retirement age, and with social security in a scary place, and not much in the way of retirement funds, I’d like to put some away to live on. I am friends with a community of Nuns who have prayed for me and my family for the past 20 years. We give them a small monthly gift, so I would like to be able to give them a bigger more helpful gift of money for their support. Then, since a million dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to, if there was any left, I’d like to remodel the house. I’d like the bathrooms and the kitchen to be handicapped accessible. If I cook, I tend to burn myself a lot, as everything is too high for me to reach. And I’d like to be able to sit in a tub safely once again. I used to love bubble baths! The older I get, the simple pleasures are the most important! And then, if there was any left, I’d share with my sister and my brother. But, it sounds like I’ve already run out of money. Isn’t that the way it usually is?
