Q5. If I were to win the lottery___________.
I would pay cash for our dream house. We live in a basic 3 bed 2 bath colonial with no garage and a 'tricky' lot. I would build a house with 5 beds and more baths, quiet study/practice space for each kid, separate office where DH and I could 'wall off' our stressful stuff, and a large hobby/fitness area, probably over the garage. This would only happen if we won the lottery because big mortgages are stressful!
If it was a -really- big lottery I would find the right people to partner with to start a business here in town dedicated to the social-emotional-physical well being of tweens and teens. Our kids have no place to 'hang', no place to go to socialize (and very little chance to socialize in school), and no fitness facilities. (Fitness facilities for tweens/teens are vanishingly rare and an untapped market, IMO.) I have several friends who have dreamed aloud of creating a space like this in town. I think if we put our heads together we could do it. But no one has the resources to finance such a venture.
