  • I would let my mom retire so she could be a full time grandma. I would start a non profit organization and work in developing countries creating better drinking/irrigation systems. Water is an essential element to life. Not only to drink but for the purpose of growing food. Teaching sustainable practices and giving people the ability to provide for themselves is priceless in comparison to just giving people food. I'd like to also enjoy developing programs to provide tutoring to struggling children here in the US because sadly so many fall through the cracks in the new era of 30+ classroom sizes. Education is so crucial to us rebuilding a strong America.

  • I would buy my parents a house and my dad a truck. I would buy my brother and sister a house as well and pay off my brother and sister's car. I would get a bigger house for me and my son and sell my old one. Set up a trust for my son. Give $2,000 to all my aunts and uncles and buy my grandma a house.

  • The very first thing I would buy is a house for my family, we're renting right now and it sucks...I want my own house SO bad...I would also buy my mama's house for her....I doubt DH would retire (I'm SAHM) because he's a workaholic...he's been talking about us starting a business together too though so if he's serious about that then we would probably do that too =)

  • The first thing I would buy would be a house on the beach with a separate guest house pretty far from the main house. I don't want a mansion, but I also don't want family crashing in our home. I wouldn't quit my job because most of what I do I don't get paid for now. I am a SAHM and a full time volunteer. The stuff I do on the side for money I would still do, because I enjoy it (web and graphic design, create teaching printables, etc).
