Would love to know what is like to not spend every waking minute worried about how to pay common bills like electric and water....

Would love more than words can say what a nights sleep would feel like without laying down with money worries on my mind...

I would pay off my debts!!! Give to charities and invest some. If it was a big sum I would pay off my house give it to my mom and then buy a bigger house for us so we wouldn't feel like sardines anymore and put some away for kids college.

That article is really sad. There is so much good you could do with that kind of money.

First thing I'd do is take my parents out to dinner and pick up the check. I have always wanted to do that. Then I'd pay off all debts. Save some for Tyler's education and some for him in a savings account he can't touch until he is like 30.
I'd buy us a house and a nice car and save some for maintenence and gas.
I'd also like to take a trip and visit some of my friends scattered all over the globe, not to mention all of the national landmarks and sightseeing areas.
I'd like to start a scholarship for college students who don't quite meet low income guidelines, but can't afford college. When I first got out of high school, I couldn't get any financial aid because my parents income was right above the guidelines. Yet as a farmer and a SAHM, my parents barely could afford our school lunches. We qualified for the free lunch program, but I couldn't get aid for college.

There are SOOOO many of us (as individuals and as parents) in that boat!
Sounds like you've given this a lot of thought! A nice plan.
