    I would work part-time or volunteer to work with animals, patients at hospitals, etc. I couldn’t just stay at home.

    I wouldn’t work my current job– but I’d do a lot of other things… 

    I’d sponsor and run a community garden

    I’d cook at the soup kitchen

    I’d take my dog on hours long hikes

    I’d volunteer at the convelecant hospital

    I’d volunteer at the animal shelter

    I’d visit my relatives more

    I’d spend more time with my friends who don’t live in the same town as me

    I’d finish the 100 or so craft projects I’ve purchased all the supplies for

     

    If I didn’t have to work, I’d probably be busier than I am now!

    I would work part time…I’d get bored not having any structure!  I’d probably also try to volunteer.  🙂

    @CorgiTales:  Ditto.  I don’t think I would be a lawyer anymore, but I would certainly have to do something with my time.

    Maybe something fun like run a small shop or help Fiance out if he ever gets to open the business he wants.

    I go nuts being at home for just a week without working – it seems like so much longer!

    Wow, this thread makes me a little thankful..I was sitting here, bored, contemplating on either taking a nap/painting/start my pallet table/upload pics to my non existent etsy shop/watch crappy day time tv………….and feeling crappy because I don’t have to work, but I’m bored…I’m just going to put my foot in my mouth and continue on my way downstairs to paint until it’s time to pick up daughter from school and take her to her Tae Kwon Do lesson. And then tomorrow I’m going to do all the things I should be doing instead of sitting here whining about being bored all day while my husband busts his ass so I don’t have to work.

    Nope. I would probably go to school, though, just because I like learning. But I wouldn’t want to commit myself to a full time job anymore.

    I put yes because I want to be a therapist, but likely part-time or contract. I want to have more freedom in my schedule to pursue other interests.

    I’m a very social person, and I need a good amount of social interaction with people, so I would work.

    I would work, but I wouldn’t work here… DH and I have been wanting to open up a business for a long time. I could use that money tree right now to help with start-up costs. 😉

    Honestly, I would probably work part-time and spend the rest of the time doing things I enjoy. My favorite job out of everywhere I’ve worked was as an after-school teacher at an elementary school. I worked M-F (except school holidays) from 2-6 and I absolutley loved it. I only quit because I needed a full-time job with benefits in order to support myself.

    That depends. If I continued to work, do I still get the money tree? Because if that’s an option, I’d choose to work AND collect money from the tree. That’s sort of the situation we’re in now. We could live off of what my husband makes but my income makes life soooooo much easier and more fun.

    I’m not sure. I’m a medical student so obviously would love to be a doctor. If money wasn’t an issue then I wouldn’t worry about taking years out every now and then. I imagine I would be able to be more selective about which area I would work in if I volunteered my time for free.
