I'm tempted to write a post heavy with sarcasm about how "thrilled" I am that John Tesh will be coming to my city soon, and with my membership to the Pavilion, I can order tickets before they're open to the ordinary, non-member public. But I wouldn't write a sarcasm-laced post like that. It just wouldn't be christian.

On to other things.

I get a lot of questions sparked by this little blog. I get them in emails, comments, and via facebook. Most people want to know about being-a-mother-related topics, home schooling, decorating, and the occasional recipe inquiry.

I love talking to people who read all the simple things I write. I'm amazed that you check in so faithfully, and you're all just so sweet. I write like you're not there, but I do know you're there. And I love that you're there. But when I'm writing, I forget about how many of you are really out there. It's complicated.

It's fun to get comments or questions from you, and it's always great to hear from you, and you don't have to apologize for reading if you don't know me well, or at all. Peeps are always sheepish and a tad ashamed. Be not ashamed. I tell you why here. Really, it's only a thrill to know you're out there.

I read lots of blogs on all manner of topics. They're all just fantastic, and I've never met almost any of them, 99% of them. Unashamed.

And now, here's some questions I received:

I have some interesting questions:

1. Not that money is everything, but if you had a million bucks, what would you do with it?
2. If you got to move to another U.S. city/town tomorrow, where would you go and why?
Random blurker that you don't know. :-)

Dear Random Blurker,

If I had a million dollars, I would:
a. tithe $100,000 to The Ransom.
b. Get overwhelmed just thinking of all the places we could give it away.
c. pray with Jim about what to do with it.
d. give myself a $5000 shopping trip to Pottery Barn (clearly, this would be in line with the will of God revealed to us in step C.).

That's all.

If I could move to any other US place tomorrow, I'd choose to stay here. We love our city. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

And now you know.

Do I get to be the 1% of bloggers that you have met in real life?!

I would love to spend $5,000 at Pottery Barn too, but I might have to save back a small portion for Williams-Sonoma. I could spend many hours just flipping through both of their catalogs:)

Hi Megan-

I'm the random blurker! Thanks for this post- it totally made my night last night! If I had a million bucks, I'd donate some to the arts, buy a fixer-upper in the middle of no where and spend weekends working on it, travel, and help those I love. If I moved to another city, I'd definitely pick Washington DC- I love that place. (I live in Chicago now.)

Thanks again for answering,

(And now you know my name!)

I must agree with you on John Tesh. I go into the East side Goodwill, and they have his radio show on, and I can barely shop. He makes me want to commit Hari Kari.
