1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

1.  I did tennis, swimming and treadmill, so about 3.5 hours so far.

2.  For the dads/grands, I hope the kids' handmade cards will be completed by the 16th.  And I bought a tripped-out golf bag for grandpa.  I plan to buy for dh a new fishing rod and hat, but I'm sure he'll want to go with me. 

3.  If I was given, $10,000, I'd spend it!  I have my eye on new curtains and custom shelves/cabinets for a room in the house.

There was no challenge. She just said she'd apply the money she was given to the same thing she applies money she earns. I'm not sure why the reaction.

I live less than 3 miles from work and about five miles from the gym, which are the places I go on a daily or near-daily basis. We just go a lot of other places, too.

Yeah, we don't go long distances with our cars. We usually fly or cruise to them lol.

I answered the fluff question with honesty and actual experience. I got an unexpected windfall of 10K, which is a non-guaranteed part of my compensation package. Who knows, maybe every other year I didn't receive it, I left this money on the table because I didn't do my job well enough.

Think of the possibility of money NOT from a job. NOTHING that you earned. A lotto winning. It sounds like you would still use it in the same way but think out of the box. You have NEVER said "if I win the lotto I will do this or that with the money"?

Not much, busy week and trying to get ready to be out of town this weekend.

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

Yes, yes and yes.  

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

Summer expenses and pool repair, that should quickly eat through that amount.

Those of us who do not at the lotto are less likely to have fantasies of winning it than those who do.

My last car had 220,000+ on it and it was 12 years old when we retired the old girl.  My current car, which is 5 years old, has 80,000ish miles.   I drive a lot but we also drive distance on a regular basis, especially in the summer.
