My mom said that it was like a morgue around the office the day they found out. What is it that makes some people actually hate it when someone else has extreme good fortune? Some of the people at her work were actually mad that she was going to continue to work there. They feel like she should give up her job to make room for a needier person. To that I say who are you to tell her what to do? If she feels like working and still does a good job, back off! We don’t know what her personal situation is or how many people she feels obligated to “give” to.
I have to admit that I felt a HUGE pang of jealousy when I heard though. She is a really nice person and I actually work with her often since she is one of my company’s suppliers. I am very happy for her and her family. Ouch, there is that damn pang again. Lol
So I have pretty much been thinking about what I would do with that kind of money. How would I let my life be changed?
I would make sure my mom and dad were both financially set.
I would make sure money for Toot’s education was put aside.
I would buy a modest townhome right here in Colorado.
I would make sure my retirement was taken care of.
I would allow myself a yearly annuity for bills, charity, fun and every day life. I am a pretty giving person by nature, so I am sure I would be finagled into forking out to others here and there.
Oh yeah, a few wrinkles might mysteriously disappear and my wardrobe would expand a little.
Amazingly enough though I don’t think that much more would change for me.
But, I might change my tune if the dream ever had an ice cubes chance in hell of becoming reality!
What would the first thing that you all would do with that kind of money.
