I was just thinking, or should I say DREAMING, about winning the Powerball, or coming into some big money, and what I would do with it. I'm curious to hear what other people would do. It always seems like the people who win a huge jackpot just end up blowing it and not using it to make a difference in the world somehow. Here's what I would do.... 1. I'd set it up where our names wouldn't be released to the public and I'd find a financial advisor and attorney right away. 2. I'd pay off our house and bills. 3. Buy lots of land...build a house....and one heck of a chicken coop with fresh sod brought in every week. 4. I'd have contests every month on BYC where people could win a new chicken coop and a year's worth of feed. 5. I'd buy the farmer's land behind our evil neighbors and use part of it as a landfill and the other part as a 1/4 mile drag racing track... 6. Pay off friends and family's bills, home loans, etc. 7. I'd go on my first ever vacation to Utah to spend time at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (aka: Heaven On Earth). 8. I'd come home and start and animal shelter...modeled after theirs, and rescue animals until I die. 9. Publish the cards and books I've written, and start a campaign to give books to needy children a few times a year so they always have new and interesting things to read. 10. Oh, and I could use a trip to a spa once in a while... 11. I'd be sure to invest and save along the way, with the help of good advice I'd be receiving, so that I wouldn't end up on one of those cable shows about people who won the lottery and lost it all in 6 years. Ahhhhhhhhhh, now back to reality! So, there's a few of my dreams...anyone else have any big plans? It's fun to let yourself get carried away for a few minutes in a little fantasy-it's a well deserved break for all of our stressed out brains!
