Slowly crawling our way there. Then the weekend will fly by and we'll be waiting for the weekend again.

Im looking forward to sat. Got a possible trade lined up for my b2200. Guy is wanting a dd and is potentially willing to trade his 66 ford country squire wagon. Planning to meet up sat and check it out. So far from the pictures the underside and frame are solid with only a small bit of rust holes on the front of the rear fenders. Interior looks pretty good, needs a front seat and both driver side panels. Rear seat and pass panels look flawless, dash is complete but I cant tell if there is any cracks yet. Runs and drives but needs the trans gone through and a lil engine work, def more potential than the mazda though.

Yep. Being an adult sucks. M-F doesn't have to stand for "Monday to Friday". In your context, "...and having a [****] job".

I need to win the lottery. First thing I would do? Sleep as much as I can for a week.

You can sleep when your dead lol. I get anxiety if I sit around and do nothing for extended periods of time. Like I feel guilty for wasting perfectly good time not making progress on some project

If it's a work of passion, sure, I give it 110%. Otherwise I just show up to do what I need to.

I could see myself doing a lot of nothing for a min if I won. I know it wouldn't last though. The amount of stuff I could get myself into if money wasn't a problem is crazy

I think that after A while of not working, I would start becoming motivated to work on my own projects. but since generally we only get 2 days off a week, i spend that time being lazy AF and then spend the week feeling bad about my neglected cobalt and evo.

With kids I can't just sit around all day. But I'd spend a crapload of time doing fun stuff with them. I'd spend quite a bit of time and money on cars too.

Yep. I would spend some cash on my car, move to a warmer climate out in the boonies with a custom house powered from solar panels, gigabit internet, and just putter around.

Idk how ppl work, do things with their younger kids, and still have time to do projects of their own.
