    It's really not novel-worthy. With Pop being in the Army and always getting shipped to Germany when he wasn't stateside, and then me deciding to move over there on my own at 18 (I'm not military - but Pop did pick up a Fraulein while on his first tour of duty there...my mom, so fully half of my family are Germans), I had spent well over half my life in Germany. I returned to the US to marry my first high school boyfriend (I did high school here). Hubby and I set up shop in New Jersey. A few years and three kids later, 9-11 happened, and since hubby and I are pretty conservative and didn't buy cable tv service, we all watched a lot of broadcast PBS (and loved it). Since we all in the NJ-NY area went without tv for those first few weeks after the WTC went down hubby and I looked around and said something like - you know what, tv really isn't necessary for health and well-being or even news (what with radio and newspapers and dvd's and all), so off it stays.

    We decided to move out here to get out of the Jersey rat race. I'm not knocking the people there, but the lifestyle was too much. We got here by moving to where hubby's sister lived - she married a local boy. Now we live on a dirt road with many Amish as neighbors. And are so far out there, that there is no way to get tv unless you get a satellite dish - which we, of course, said no to. With Netflix streaming and hubby being a computer geek, we aren't that disconnected - witness me talking to you - but I really, truly, wanted a more innocent, healthy, less-pop culture, more reading-and-doing household for my girls to grow up in. And I NEVER miss the commercials.

    If I had them both...
    I would be SO greedy!
    And the orange one would be my in town ride, for top down days... (The Ghia will be my top on day car of course.)
    And the green one would be the go play with the big boys on the trials ride.

    If I ever win the lottery... I want a small house, and a BIG garage.
    (Might help if I played on occasion...)

    The other day I saw a house with a 5-door garage. o.O I mean, it was a pretty sizeable house- but I think the WHOLE lower level was for cars.

    Heheh... that would be a start...
    But between husband and I I don't think it would cover it.

    I was thinking more like a simple home, with a separate HUGE stable style garage... possibly with lifts to put them 2 deep in some areas.
    And TOOOOOOLLLSSSSSS.
    Yeah, I'm one of the only women I know that lusts over a well built full on foam/cut in organized all stainless tool box, completely kitted out.

    Husband has told me before that he's glad we don't have a really nice garage, because he'd probably never see me again. I told him he could join me in the garage any time.

    First (as in, my first daughter) is a tool nut as well. It competes with her intense love of reading. Maybe I should get her a Mac Tools Complete History of the Wrench. Or something like that. Hmmm - we are taking off for the library in just a few...

    kids and i played a bit after they discovered "you could pay $1 and get thousands back??" well, yeah, that is a possibility, but not likely. "ok, let's do it because we could be rich and daddy could move back home." this was before daddy moved back home. anyway, after a few spent $$, a few dollars won and then lost again, i think they get the picture.

    of course we'd go on a little spending spree, vacation, buy a home, and pay off student loans, but my primary concern would be "oh my, we could spend this so quickly and then have nothing again" so i'd want to find ways to invest and make it grow. we'd have a family empire, mwhahahaha!

    oh, and when we could, i'd want to build a castle in the woods. because that'd be awesome.

    Sounded pretty novel-worthy to me. We have several authors around here who could probably make that into something that would sell. It sounds like you have a good plan. Reading and doing household, dang, we need more of those. I've got the reading part down but judging by dishes and laundry, I need to do more doing. See, you show up and already I feel badly about myself. You'll fit in perfectly
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Hmm...well, yes, I can tell they are both automobiles...and uh...I think this is a phillip's head screwdriver....or perhaps it is a socket wrench. Eh, screw it.

    My post-lottery house would have a huge kitchen. I'm not sure I would even use a garage as we have never had one, not even growing up.
