If you found one million dollars in the morning and had to spend it by nightfall, what would you do with the money?
Well, Duh — if I found a million dollars that I had to spend by midnight, I’d just split it in 3’s between Drew’s school, the middle school and the elementary school.
I may also buy a new kitchen table…
And possibly a new roof. Like, could I get into contract with something before midnight or would it have to be COMPLETED before midnight. Because I may have to split it in 4’s between my house and the kids schools.
But I’d know that things I only spent a few hours considering wouldn’t be as important as what it could do in the school.
And the funny thing about my gut response was that you always here where you spend your time is truly where your heart is. And while a lot of people might think of giving some to their kids school I am also giving my time there… so at least my heart follows my checkbook.
Where would you spend a million dollars. The vain side of me would love some new clothes (but I get plenty at Goodwill, so I really don’t feel like I have “nothing to wear”. I’d LOVE to change out the countertops in my kitchen, and have a more useable lazy susan… but my life is pretty darn great as it is.
Oh wait, could I put the money towards a trip?
Screw the schools.
