A Million Buckaroos

If I had a million dollars today, it would bring a little, bitty smile to my face. I would happily think about all the things I would like to buy because I could be a material girl living in a material world very easily . . .

But, after I was a little frivolous, because I'd just have to be for a little bit, I would do all the necessities like college educations, mortgages, car loans and credit card bills for me and mine. I would buy myself a little cottage in the hills of northwest North Carolina and then have a blast decorating it. I would reduce my hours at work and take time to write a book. I would stock up on Swarovski crystals and pearls and unique glass beads and spend time creating beautiful pieces of jewelry. I would make distinctive pillows and purses to sell on Worth Avenue and I would go to Barnes and Noble with a shopping cart and fill it with whatever my heart desired. I would get involved with the Make A Wish Foundation and I certainly would have to invest some so I could keep up with this new standard of living that I would be accustomed to.

I would take a little trip to Vermont to visit my brother as I have not seen his new home yet. I would go to Toronto, Niagra Falls and Williamsburg, Virginia. I'd also go to Key West for a month. Yep, I'd enjoy all of these things. Okay, I'm ready. Let's go!!!

You'd have to build a big house because it looks like we'll all be visiting! I think I'd go to a little sunshine, our weather is so cloudy lately.

A million bucks ! I wouldn't even know where to start. I guess the first thing I would do is pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.And with my luck I would be dreaming LOL.
