Hmm, what to do with

a thousand dollars??? I almost had to sort out that dilemma this afternoon. I was listening to a popular radio station this afternoon while eating my lunch at work, when I heard the song of the day. If you are caller 99, you win $1000!!! I was caller 96!!!!and that was the second time I got through. You cannot imagine how hard I tried to get through again to be caller 99, lol, oh well maybe tomorrow or the next day.
But then I had to stop and ask myself what I actually would have done with $1000 if I had won.
Here are a few things that came to mind ( and yes a few may sound a bit selfish) :
1 - set at least $600 aside for bills
2- take the other $400 and go shopping!! hmm, maybe I'd buy a purse ( like I need another one, but yes a girl ALWAYS needs another purse, or a pair of shoes, or a cool looking blouse....
3 - I'd take my daughter shopping at some cool girl store like the GAP, or Just For Girlz ( I think thats the name of the store)
4- give Chris $200 and let him go shopping for something he wants,but knowing how practical he is he wouldn't find anything that he actually needs, but I'm sure he could find something to blow it on in the electronics department...
5- I want to spend at least $50 of it on a nice warm bubbling massaging foot bath. I really want one of those and have entered that as one of the top choices on my list to Santa...
6- split the $600 I had set aside for bills and give half to my mom and the other half to my mother in law Sue.
7-take at least part of it and go adopt a family off the Angel tree at the mall and give them an awesome Christmas...

Hmm I'm still not feeling great so thats as far as I can imagine so far if I had won that $1000.
Well I'm going to go watch TV and read yesterdays paper, take care and let me know what you'd do if you won alot of money....

Oh man - three phone calls too soon for a $1,000. It's those kind of things that can keep a person up at night.
