    1, lock my door
    2, pay off my house and sell it to a less fortunate person for 1.00
    3, pay off other bills
    4, pay off my daughters bills and send her butt to college with a new car
    5, buy me a mini cooper
    6, buy a new modest home in New England
    7, change my name so my family (not my kids) can not find me
    8, buy a female Italian Greyhound for my boy Italian Greyhound
    9, get my back tattoo
    10, tummy tuck
    11, new Coach bag...mine is dirty
    12, Jimmy Choo shoes
    13, buy a complete gym for my new home
    14, hire a full time nutritionist and chef
    15, hire a new trainer
    16, go to Disney
    17, go to Cabo and see Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo cantina
    18, hook my best friend up comfortably
    19, invest sensibly
    20, live comfortably and responsibly

    I know I have a boring life....but I believe that have the best things does not give you the best life. I of course would have to work. I would not buy an Island....just visit....

    and I have always said...the day I win the lottery...the first person who knocks on my door with their hand out will be that last person I help and I do not care who they are....my kids know this too and they have agreed they have faith mom will do right by them and they do not need to ask for anything!!!

    If I won 50 million in the lottery tomorrow it would be a major miracle because I don't play the lottery. :laugh: But if I did play the lottery and won, I'd give 10% to my church, give some to my kids and my sisters, buy a house.

    My brother won a million in the lotto about 4 years ago, and he's pretty much broke now. I'd like to think Karma plays a big part in good fortune, and he didn't turn out to be a very good person after he won.

    I agree with tab though, I'd help so many people who didn't ask me for anything, but those who asked would most likely get nothing. I have 10 (living) siblings, and I think it would be pretty sweet for all of us to be millionaires, so I'd definitely be giving each of them their own million.

    I'm pretty sure I'd claim the money anonymously if at all possible. I wouldn't want my name plastered everywhere as the proud new owner of 50 mil.

    thats why I would continue to work, and my habits would not reflect such millions. I hate attention....I would open christmas gifts in the crapper if I could.....I do not like attention. Also why I would change my name.....and move to New England cuz my money hungry family would not go there it is too cold....

    haha.......:laugh:

    I want to be mysterious but comfortable:glasses:

    I would help my friend Carla, she has one daughter with type 1 diabetes and the other daughter has downes syndrome.....I would help her and donate to her church since I do not attend one (long story). I would also pay for Carlas lapband or gastric bypass...whichever she wanted. She is not even the best friend I would set up....she is a good person who needs a break in life.

    If I won the 50 million lottery, first I would give my job two weeks notice and would then hire someone to take my place for those two weeks so I wouldn't have to be there.

    An unlimited food budget...it's funny how that becomes one of our big dreams. Funny or sad, I don't know. lol I would love to have a fridge full of fruits and veggies at all times.

    I would Buy land and build a modest home with my builder husband. I would travel the world with my daughter. Dh is afraid to fly. I would open an animal rescue . My daughter and I would become missionaries and spred the love and wealth to people who realy need it. I would travel to schools across our nation promoting literacy with cool books . I would give our church a big chunk,. I would adopt a child or 2. I would invest for my children. I have always thought It would be great to win a huge chunk of money so I could help others in a bigger way than I do now. Cindy :heart:
