Winning the Lottery

What’s the first thing you would do for yourself if you won 100 million dollars? Note: this question is specifically for you…what would you do for fun after the family and the bills and the obvious stuff was taken care of?

Oh my. I would totally buy a house on Tillson Street in Romeo, Michigan. It is 2 blocks of beautiful historical Victorian houses and they also happen to go nuts at Halloween! Here is a link to my blog post of pics from last year. I would LOOOOVE to live there.


If that is not possible, then I would happily tear down & rebuild our current house. I do like the neighborhood, so I'm OK with this. Right now we have 849 sq. feet. The back section was added on by a drunken baboon in 1973 - there's no way a licensed contractor of any worth built this. I'd like a basement with a Man Cave for Randy to put all his radio stuff in. I have ideas on how I'd want that decorated, too. I want an actual laundry ROOM with room to iron & fold clothes, instead of a closet where I have to straddle the furnace to reach into the washer and twist my knee awkwardly to also have the dryer open. I want a linen closet to put sheets & towels in, instead of in a falling apart dresser in the girl's closet. I want to have a working shower in my bathroom, one without a hole the shape of Randy's foot in the bottom. Either a shower or an armoire for storage. I'd be happy with either. I want a fenced yard so I can just open the back door and let the dog out, instead of having to venture out in my PJs to put him on the run. Yeah - that happens daily.

Begone!  or BeChanged!

New cars for me & Randy both. He'd probably want something like an old Ford Crown Vic, retired police cruiser. I'd be happy with a Ford Escape or Explorer or Edge. I love my 12 year old Escort, but sometimes my knee makes it difficult to get out of something that low. I have to stick with the Big 3, since I don't want to risk being haunted by my Dad.

OK, next would be travel. I want to visit all 50 states. I want to go to London and along with the usual expected sightseeing, spend a whole day (or two or three) exploring Highgate Cemetery. There are lots of places I'd want to visit in Europe & Asia.

Miss Angela, who is already quite spoiled, would be getting her own personal, private TUTOR / DRILL SERGEANT!!!! WoohooooO!

So what would you do if you won the lottery?
