    If I Ever Come Into a Fortune

    If I became wealthy overnight, I'd go out and hire a professional organizer! I cannot, for the life of me, find my Christmas fabric and craft supplies. I've been hunting for at least a week. I'm very puzzled! How could they disappear?

    I would give some to an animal shelter. And then tell my job to shove it!

    In this order, I would:
    - pay off all debt
    - pay off daughter's student loans
    - buy a BIG new house
    - new cars and furniture
    - major dental work
    - Vacation
    - Invest
    - Pick my top 5 charities and give, give, give!!!


    Can you tell this isn't the first time I thought about this!

    I would like a boat. We live near a river and I'd like to fully enjoy it.
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    I wouldn't be selfish. I would use the money to help others who need it more than I do. But I do need some professional help getting organized and getting rid of things. I guess I really started this thread because I was frustrated at not being able to find things.
