Maybe next week

I sometimes envy Husband's optimism (I'll get back to that later). Someone in Helsinki got a record-win (12 million Euros) in the Finnish Lotto lottery on Sunday and a couple of days later I got an eager SMS from Husband: "Have you checked your online account, the winning row was played via internet?!"

I consider myself a realist and it didn't cross my mind even for one microsecond that I could have won. Before I checked that I really hadn't I amused myself thinking what I would do with such amount of money. What would I buy, what would I want?

1. I wouldn't start looking for a new house, not now. We just moved (I'll have to come back to that later).

2. I don't want a car (hm, later more about that too).

3. There's nothing I can imagine money could buy to improve my or my loved one's health (some more about that later as well).

4. I don't think I'd quit working, not at least completely. To me, work gives balance and meaning to life.

5. Financially we're hanging there but it would be super awesome to kiss goodbye to all our debts. The first thing I would do, note to self.

6. I hate Finnish winter, one of my dreams is to spend winters abroad somewhere warm. Would do that, definitely.

7. I would absolutely spend on clothes, facials etc. so I would look super fantastic.

8. Yes, at some point I would buy something Very Expensive And Unnecessary just because I could. To see what it feels like.

I don't know if I forgot something really important. If not, the list doesn't look bad at all. Those are actually achievable dreams and I'm rather well off I'd say! I'll try to adopt some of Husband's optimism. Maybe I'll win in the lottery  next week as well.

P.S. Husband seemed genuinely disappointed ("I was so sure you'd won!") when he found out I wasn't the winner. Poor thing!

  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I found it for him...
    lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your internet site.
