It's NaBloPoMo!

Hooray!!  I can't believe it's here already!  I've been waiting for this day for over!  

That's right.  Last night I did some searching, trying to find a blogging calendar to get me "rebooted"...because I miss this SO very much and I just need to get back in the flow.  It's part of bringing HER back.

NaBloPoMo is a fun bloggy challenge, similar, I suppose, to NaNoWriMo (where writers or wannabe writers write a novel in November).  There's a calendar of writing prompts, one for each day Monday-Friday, and then bloggers are given the weekends to write about whatever they can dream up. 



Today, of course, is November 1, and thus it's also NaBloPoMo day 1.  I am SO excited to get going!  So, without further adieu....


If you found one million dollars in the morning and had to spend it by nightfall, what would you do with the money?

Oh, the possibilities!  Good grief.  Where do I even begin??
Okay, so I have to spend it by nightfall, so that's limiting.  I mean...I don't have time to fund an adoption by nightfall, so that's out.  

I think I'd start by buying myself a new Ford Expedition, because I really do miss mine.  (Weird way to start, right?)  

I'd buy a bigger house.  Nothing crazy, but you know, 4 bedrooms and 2 baths would be divine!
(Let's get all fancy and say this is $200K.)

I think I'd leave my furniture and buy all new.  We'll call that another $5K or so.

Because I'm a wonderful wife, I'd buy my husband the big truck he's always wanted ($40K) and the travel trailer we really want ($60K).

I'd book a Disney vacation for my family.  We'll do a nice resort, food, souvenirs ($5K).

AND I have around $650K left to spend.  Geez.  I'm not even good at this!

I can't keep it, so I'll probably blow another $25K on replacing ALL of our clothes, computers, material goods in general.  ($25K)

I'll give $50K to each set of parents and each sibling.  ($150K)

That leaves me with roughly $375K, if I'm doing the math correctly.

I'll split that 3 ways...$125K each to my kids' school, our church, and Show Hope.

Whew!  I'm tired from all this spending!  What a trip!  (Also, if you're feeling like throwing a quick mil my way, I'm SO up for it...and now I even have a spending plan!  Volunteers??)


Well that was fun!  Can't wait to write tomorrow!
