If I'd Won the Mega Millions

When I was a little girl I loved going to sleep just so I could dream. I use to think I could control what I dreamt about if I'd thought it right before bedtime. That never worked so I turned to daydreaming. I'd spend, what seemed like, hours imagining all kinds of scenarios in my mind. From what I remember, there was a lot of pink and a castle involved.

To this day, I am still a dreamer. When the Mega Millions jackpot rose to $640 million dollars a couple of weekends past, my daydreams went into overdrive! I had all kinds of plans about what I'd do with the money and how my life style would change. While my thoughts drifted about all the luxuries that kind of money could buy, I wondered if I'd still blog. 

After not blogging at all last week, I'd have to say 'yes!'. I missed it. Even though I was away from blogland because the demands of my little ones take priority, I lost count how many times in the day I pondered about blog ideas, design, and post stories. However, my postings would maybe look a little different than they do know. Perhaps they would be something like this:

When I opened my eyes this morning, I immediately pinched myself. I am starting to get a bruise on my arm from doing this every morning. But I can't help it. I still can't believe I get to wake up to this.

I was the first one up and the house was quiet. I said a silent prayer, poured my coffee, went outside, and read a book. I read three chapters! I haven't read in that large of a chunk in nine years! 

When I heard the giggling of the boys, I knew my reading time was up. I joined them in the dinning room where Chef Anton had arranged another gorgeous table setting with an exquisite breakfast to go with it.

The boys hardly ate though. Sun Kissed Husband promised them to go out surfing and they were anxious to hit the waves. I grabbed my camera and captured their exhilaration from the shoreline.

After all the water-log fun, the boys (and Sun Kissed Husband) were exhausted and took naps. 

While they did that, I FINALLY cleaned out and decluttered the garage!

Not too shabby of a daydream post, huh?

Ha! I love it!!! But, you forgot to mention that you shared the house with my family! I guess it is a little large and it would be easy to miss us.

Oh my gosh, I did that as a kid and still do that today. Sometimes it's how I get myself to sleep, thinking of so many things, visualizing things. Yep, I did it too with that lottery money. I see stories on the news where someone is in need and someday I would just like to anonymously help out with out having to think of budgeting money.

That garage picture cracked me up. If that was your garage, you would have enough money to pay someone to clean it out an organize it for you!

LOL! I need to start daydreaming more like you! My daydreams consist of laundry and dishes being done and boys playing without fighting:)
