What would you do with $1,000,000.00?
Just for fun today I am going to write about something that has no bearing on weight loss. Unless, of course, you decided to use the money to go to a fat farm or something.
Let's just pretend that you are the perfect weight and you are in perfect health.
Do you remember the old show The Millionaire? Probably not, most of you are way too young to remember that. The Millionaire was a TV show that originally ran in the late 1950's. I was too young then!!!! It ran in syndication from the 1960's to the 1980's. See that's why I was able to see it.
Anyway, The Millionaire, would just show up one day and hand someone he had never met a check for one million dollars. The show would follow them to see how the money affected their life. It was not a reality show!!
In this case, I want to see you spend the money on yourself. So, if I handed you a check for $1,000,000.00, how would you spend it?
If a stranger gave me the money to spend, and I had to spend it on myself here is what I would do......
Being a typical mom, I would have a hard time spending it on myself. You know how moms are, they want to take care of their families first. I'm sure there is something the kids need.
So, here is how I would spend it on myself. I would travel! Now, I really don't want to travel alone. So, here I am cheating already! I made this up, so I get to make my own rules as I go along. I am taking my family with me. My grown children would be fun to take on a trip. I haven't had a trip with all of them. My youngest has never had a vacation with all of his older siblings. He is 18 years younger than his closet sibling.
It would be so much fun to take my entire family someplace really fun. Would we go on a cruise? How about a trip to an island paradise? Of course, I love trips to Europe. Oh my, so many choices to make.
I have it!!! We will take a cruise that takes us to Europe. It will have a stop at a beautiful island paradise. Then we will have time to hang out in Europe and fly home via Paris.
I would love to show my grandsons the Eiffel Tower. They would love it.
My oldest son loves to snowboard. We could have fun in Switzerland. I think we might all watch him snowboard. Ewww! I have seen a few videos. He scares me with all those flips and things! Maybe I won't watch! I am not taking him to Pamplona, Spain. He went there last year and "ran with the bulls", not just once, but twice. I worried from afar, I couldn't watch that!
Thank goodness, my other two sons aren't so adventurous. I am sure they would have a great time exploring together. Even though they are 18 years apart, they have a great time hanging out together.
My daughter would love showing her sons all the sights. I would make sure she had some free time just to go and do some things with just her husband. They don't get enough time for just the two of them. Okay, here I am making this about my family again.
Maybe I would do some shopping in Paris. I am skinny so I need to shop in Paris for clothes for my fantastic shape.
My husband and I could stroll through the streets of Rome. Take a boat ride in Venice. We could pretend to be young lovers as we explore the Italian countryside. I have never been to Italy so this would be quite fun.
Okay, I am sure I have spent all of my $1,000,000.00. I guess we will spend a lot of time traveling!
NOW YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY!!!
