Feeling Rich--For the Moment

We closed on our house yesterday and it was funded today.  Since we still haven't found a new house, there is no where for that money to go.  We've talked about a few options:

  1. Buy super fancy, brand new cars with all of the bling and frizzle.  
  2. Go to the bank and request all of the money in crisp one dollar bills--then go swimming in it.
  3. Take an amazing vacation every weekend for the next year.
  4. Spend the entire sum on lottery tickets and take our chances.
  5. Pay our share of the National Debt. (Hahahahahahaha!!!)
  6. Some other outrageous, non-thrifty, unwise thing
It seems like SO MUCH MONEY, but it sure doesn't buy much house.

What would you do?


  1. Go to New York or London and watch all the theater shows I can possibly stand, which would require us to buy a top hat, tails, and a fancy dress to fit in!

  2. Hey.....wasn't that also an Alex P. Keaton fantasy, as well!!

    But seriously, after all you guys have been through as of late.....splurging just a little is perfectly understandable, maybe even necessary!
