If I had a $1,000

Much like last week's Monday Listicles, this prompt is leaving a song stuck in my head.  Yeah, I know the song is a million dollars, but the lead up is the same.  At least it's a better song this time.

1. I would fix my car.  That's right, it's fixed!  Sorry, after almost two years of the check engine light being on and multiple repairs that didn't fix the problem, I'm shouting this from the rooftops!
2.  I would drive to every Big Lots until I found this.  I've been to three so far and still no dice storage cart.
Purple 3-Bin Storage Cart
3.  I would buy tickets to the Barenaked Ladies show in August and lots of macaroni and cheese.
4.  I would get satellite radio for the car.  Hair Nation, I miss you!
5.  I would fix the 42 year old sewing machine and learn how to use it.  Besides, it's a great conversation piece.
6.  I'd take my grandmother to NYC to visit my sister.
7.  I'd hire a maid service for the housework so I could get the attic cleaned out.
8.  I would buy my husband a new laptop, because his is misbehaving.
9.  I would re-do L's room into a big boy room the right way, instead of using one of the four beds in the attic.
10.  I would take the dog to daycare more often because she loves to play.

For some reason, I'm now craving macaroni and cheese.


  1. I love all the BNL references this week. Made the hop worth it on its own.

  2. Haha, yay BNL!!! Don't forget the microwave bacon!

    1. Mmmm, bacon. And prewrapped sausages!

  3. Oh man...I totally forgot Irishman needed a new computer. I really should've put that on my list. Having any type of storage/organizers on the list is awesome. I LOVE storage helpers.

    1. I do too. Especially when they're pretty and purple.

  4. Yes, It's amazing how long you can ride around with the Check Engine light blaring red and nothing happen. Been there, done that. And what a great idea about hiring someone to help clean the attic. That is on my list this summer.

    1. Yeah, I guess the 8th times the charm on this one!

  5. I'm craving mac and cheese now too.


    Man I want some.


  6. Ok, but the Mac & Cheese has to be Kraft. Is BNL really playing in August? We were just wondering where they went. Crazy!

  7. Nope, don't listen to Marian!! Mac'n'cheese should be Velveeta. Love how you would spend a lot of your money on others. Sweet you are!!
