Lazy Monday with a sick Hazel

Hazel definitely has a cold or some bug. She still has her runny nose and slight fever. I took her to the doctor's since I just got over strep, but the initial test was negative. So it has been a needy day with my toddler. However, I did get a bit of sewing done finally. I promised Steve awhile ago I would make new valances for our kitchen from some fabric I had. Since it was old fabric I had to make do with what I had, so this is how they came out. Steve decided awhile ago we needed new kitchen curtains and we decided on these yellow ones that I bought at KMart (I think).

My other surprise today was I got my last angel in the angel swap. Here is a picture of all the angels Hazel and I received in the swap.

So my other thought of the week, if you won a million dollars what would you do with the money? As I was thinking about this, I realized that a million dollars does not go very far anymore. The top things on my list were pay off our mortgage and buy my sister a house and pay off my other sister's mortgage and put some away for Hazel's schooling (both K-12 and college) and some for my nephew's college fund. I'm sure I would be over a million by then, but I would also want to donate some to church which needs a new roof, new kitchen, etc. It is a never ending list. So what would you do if you won a million dollars?


  1. If we won a million dollars I think we would also pay off our mortgage and put some towards the kids schooling. A holiday would also be on the list and invest the rest :-) Hope you have a nice day and that Hazel is feeling better, Kelly

  2. wow...that's a loaded question :) I would probably do the same things as you - pay off mortgage, give some to the church and save up for kids' schooling. Hope that your little one feels better.
