Lisa asked, "If you were given a million dollars tomorrow. What would you do and how would you spend it?"
I'm gonna assume, Lisa, that is what's left after taxes!
First, I would pay bills for the immediate family, should be a little left, but a million doesn't go as far as it used to go.
After setting up a trust fund for the grandchildren, I would buy Hubby a truck. I would like to give the girls a small monetary boost in their lives.
Watch out, I am gonna go a little crazy now. I would build fences and cross fences completely around this property, planned wisely with lots of gates. I would repair all our equipment.
I would reinsulate the house, put in central wood heat and redo the wiring, place a new roof over the whole thing and add porches, lots of porches with roofs and screens.
I would repair and expand the barn and build another for cows and hay.
I would like to build rustic cabins around the farm in key places so people could see the beauty that is At The Farm. They would stay in their cabins but come to the main house for meals if they wanted. I could be their guide for fishing, horseback riding, hiking, exploring, arrow head hunting, or just enjoy the scenery.
I guess that means start a business. I think for the grand opening week I would invite all my blogger friends to come for a week, free of charge, so I could meet face to face all the wonderful people I have talked to here.
Have I spent my million yet, Lisa?
