Drag all my family here. It would be kind of nice to see everyone for something other than a funeral. :)

I dream about this a lot. My mom's house is a beautiful craftsman that is nearly 100 years old. It is falling apart. She needs central heating, a new kitchen and bath and new windows, plumbing and electrical. I so wish I could hand her a check and say "Go for it!"

answers from Oklahoma City on

For $100,000 I could buy a really good program car/vehicle and still get a good quality modest home that would serve my family well.

For $250,000 I could buy a new vehicle and a new home, maybe even custom build. Seriously, housing prices are that good here. It would be at least 4 bedrooms and 3+ baths but probably with more individual rooms so one could be a sewing/craft room and an office too. It would be close in town but have some property with it, maybe2-5 acres. Where the kids could walk to school if possible.

For $500,000 I could do everything above plus take some wonderful vacations and be totally debt free.

For $1,000,000 I could buy ANY home in my town that is currently for sale and still have money left over. That is a huge mansion of a home with game room, home theater, pool, workout room, land, triple car garages, guest house, barn, etc....

If I could go anywhere I wanted I think I would go on an extended cruise around the world but I would not want one that spent 5 hours in this country then traveled 10 hours to get to the next one just to let you spend 3 hours there. I would want one that went and stayed in port several days in each destination. That way you could spend time enjoying the different cultures.

The responsible part of me would pay off all our bills as a gift to my husband and I so that we wouldn't be so stressed!
We also desperately need a new car. Both of them are from the 90's and chugging along on their last breaths.
A fun thing? I would take us all to Disneyland! My boys really really want to go as does my husband.
