    How would YOU spend your winnings?

    I'm heading off to the grocery store in a few minutes, and will probably also buy a few lottery tickets (hey, you gotta be in it to win it, right?). Then I'll spend the afternoon daydreaming about how I would spend my winnings.....a new house, hiring someone to clean the house, pay off my parents' mortgage so they can retire in style, maybe plan a vacation for the first time since my honeymoon almost 12 years ago.

    What would you do?

    Hire a live-in chef and housecleaner. Buy a bigger house (to house the aforementioned.) TRAVEL anywhere and everywhere we want to (and not have to fly in economy!)

    I would keep my job, but take a leave of absence and do some serious traveling for about 6 months. :-) 

    I'd also go and buy that pair of boots that I didn't buy b/c they were 'too expensive'. :-)  

    I'd pay off my sisters' mortages and send my parents on a trip.

    Buy a bigger house, buy Dh a new car. Set up trust funds for the twins with lots of money for education and so they can buy a house when they are grown up.Travel - get a fractional jet ownership so we don't have to travel with the masses!

    Oh, my, well I did buy my usual one ticket per year (when it gets high like this) today so I'm in the running!

    We'd give 10% to a Christian ministry.  My DH would quit his job!  We'd send a bunch to my parents and siblings.  I have two brothers who are pastors with families, and they could especially use a windfall.  I'd hire a maid...I hate cleaning.  I'd buy poppy a house - I can barely stand her living with her in-laws.  I'd go hog wild buying things for Gracie.  Toys, new beds, a doggie mansion with heat and A/C, and a dog grooming bin style bath, blow dryer.  I'd outfit the gym DH is working on downstairs.  Right now it's pretty sparse with an elliptical and a punching torso.  We'd travel for sure.  We both love Aruba and could easily spend a couple of months there.  No problem affording the kennel!

    I'll find out on Monday if the winning MD ticket was one in our office pool. We had tix in several states, incl MD.  Woo hoo! 

    I'm not holding my breath though. :-P

    I shouldn't have thought so large - how WILL I ever spend the $2 we won?  Actually, we lost $9 since DH bought 10.  Oh, well. :)

    GL, ALF - apparently, you're the only one here still in the running!

    DH won $7, which is $2 more than he spent.  Woo Hoo, cue the confetti.

    I'll have to wait till Monday to get the results of the office pool. Although I suspect I would have gotten a call by now if we hit big.  lol.

    Just saw this. :)  Again, you are too funny (and either very sweet for thinking of me, or just completely OVER all of my complaining, haha!  Or both!)

    It just sounded very stressful, that's all, and if I had won 650 mil I'd have fixed it. :)
