Single Mom's Bucket List

I don't normally play the lottery, but since the Powerball drawing was up to $200 million last night I bought one. And it got me thinking.

If you didn't have to worry about money or paying bills, what would be on your list of things to do and places to see? A single mom's bucket list so to speak. Lol.

I would take a cruise. And then maybe spend a few months seeing Europe. My son wants to visit NYC and go to the toy stores there. Lol. I would definitly buy an RV and take my son on a road trip of the U.S. so he could see all of the country. Hawaii is on that list too.

So, if you didn't have to worry about finances or making arrangements for someone to watch the kid(s), where would you go?

I agree. The culture looks amazing, but I would have to think about that too.

I'd buy a nice sized house (not a mansion) free and clear, a car that I like free and clear. With whatever money is left I'd set aside for daughter's college fund, and then travel. I wanna do a US road trip, I love road trips! I wanna go to south america, africa, europe, and asia.. Hell, as a history buff and a foody I wanna see the whole world, and taste the whole world! Haha

Buy a house and car. Get out of debt. Save money. When kids are older I'd take them to Disney world then Germany to the Anne Frank house and concentration camps. I've always been drawn to the Holocaust and I'd want my kids to be able to witness history

I"d want to go live in Germany for a few years - so me and my son could learn German - and he can be biligual.  maybe we'd stay forever.

I'd buy a sailboat and find a way to start the school I've always wanted to open on the boat.
