I would go to Hilton Head and buy a beach house for summer vacations.Not just any beach house ~ a beautiful one right on the beach and I would invite my family and friends to come there for vacations.

I would probably go smoke a cigarette by the ocean and have one long talk with myself!

Betty said...

I would get a trusted accountant.We had a 5million winner in our community and she said the paperwork was awful.

Dr.John said...

I would pay off the motgages on all my kids houses and make a nice gift to the church.

Gary said...

I would put most of it in CD's. A million dollars is a lot of money, but it can disappear in a hurry if a person isn't careful.

Vacation!

Chana said...

Get all my kids and I plane tickets and go visit my family (i haven't seen some of them for 17 yrs)...Their be many stops for i have family all over but the very first would be my grandma...i haven't seen her in so many years...at least 10 and i miss her hugs...

Nice post...happy wishing...

I'd make arrangements to pay off my mortgage and other minor debt, then invest the rest! Oh wait, I'd probably take a trip to Europe, Ireland in specific to look up our old haunts from when we were married there! :)

I would help my parents clear their debt, they had to file bankruptcy 3 years ago. Then I would pay off my house and cars, invest some of what is left then take off to Europe for my dream vacation

Catch said...

Mommy: I know exactly what you mean.....a nice quiet talk with yourself....sounds cool!

Betty: that would be the secret...finding a trusted accountant! lol

Dr JOhn: how nice to think of the kids instead of yourself! ( unlike me ..lol) I guarantee you my kids would spend as much time at the beach house as me....lol. I would make a nice gift to my Church too. I think I would refurbish our Church kitchen.

Gary: smart move!!! but I would have to blow some of it.

Lori: definitly!!!!!

Chana: Thats sounds nice Chana..it woould be something you would always remember.

Overwhelmed: Nice to see you! I love your blog...Im waiting for the next part of the story! Yes paying off anything you owe would be a "must do"...also traveling...oh yea!

Fuzz: I wanta see that!!!!!! LoL

TC:....haha..you go boy!!!!

kristi:how nice that you think of your parents first kristi.stop in and see me at the beach house while your on vacation!

Hi Catch, First thing I'd do is donate a lot to P.B.S.O (perinatal bereavement support serivces Ontario) whom have been angels helping me thorugh this, a lot to Sick kids hospital in Toronto the neonatal intensive care unit for taking care of my Jack, and then I'd fly Joe and our families on vacation. Having a much better day today, a saying that gives me strength is "weeping may go on all night but joy comes with the morning" very true for me!
Love to you too!

Hi Catch, First I'd give money to Perinatal Bereavement Support Services Ontario, my support group whom are angels, and to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for taking care of my Jack, I'd pay off debts and grab my family for vacation. Lots of love to you!

I have no idea really. A million doesn't go far anymore unless you are real smart. And it's not enough to buy hubby out of the navy. So I guess try to invest somehow to get the most out of it. And then when he gets out in 8 years finally build our dream house. But I do know that I would pay off my moms house for her,right away. And pay off some of her credit debt if I could. That way she could finally stop working and her health would improve, hopefully.
