Monopoly (Family Time)

I have always liked the game Monopoly. When I was younger I asked for Monopoly for Christmas but being an only child,  I didn’t have many opportunities to play the game. When I got married my husband and our roommate played the game. I have never won a monopoly game.

I like monopoly because of  it’s the only time I ever get to feel rich except for income tax refund season. I like the game and I like the Charles B. Darrow’s story, he was unemployed when he invented and nobdoy thought people would be interested but he became a number one board game.  It appeals to me be because I always cheer for the underdog.

Tonight the person who won said I won because I played and I had a strategy. I thought I never thought about playing the game with strategy. I also had never thought about living with strategy.   In my late teens I set some goals but they were only about materialistic things. In my late twenties was the first time I ever set any goals.  My husband at the time pushed into it. I still have yet to achieve some goals on that list. I have noticed the last few years where  I have set goals have been better. At least I can see I made some progress, I did a few goals for this year.

Life is kind of like monopoly you don’t get to pick where you start, you go  don’t sit still long and you take chances.
