Mega Millions

So I was recruited at work to go buy the Mega Millions tickets today at lunch. I wonder if they think I'm lucky OR they know they can blame my lack of luck when we don't win.

Since the jackpot is now over $200 million, we all put in an equal amount of money towards 125 tickets. Yes, I know it may be a pipe dream, but it sure gives us all something to hope for, talk about and dream of.

I started thinking about everything I'd want to buy with my cool ten million (before taxes): a new house, new car, fat savings account, vacations, taking care of any debt, taking care of my family and maybe starting my own business.

A friend of mine even found the house she is going to buy as soon as we win. I think I decided I wouldn't buy a huge house, just one that we could be comfortable in. I would maybe also buy a vacation home on the lake that everyone could take advantage of.

Of course all of the decision I made today, were made without any consideration or discussion with Husband. He always says the lottery is a tax for people bad at math. So I figure I'll be rich, bad at math and making all the decisions!
