Okay, so in typical Michelle fashion, I have fallen behind on this challenge already. BUT– to change it up, instead of just giving up, I am going to jump back in.. and hopefully back track on some of the days as I make time to.
Today’s challenge is, If you won the lottery……
Definitely a challenging question and while I think about it all the time (don’t we all), I have never really THOUGHT about it. t doesn’t give a dollar amount that you won, so I am just going to assume that it is a pretty substantial amount. Possibly one that would mean that I would not need to work anymore and could still manage to live quite comfortably.
With that being said, I probably would NOT quit my job. I mean, I don’t think that I would necessarily stay on full-time, but I would certainly work part-time for as long as possible. I would also pay off any of our big “loans”. Damian’s student loans, the house, my car. I would finally add-on the additional bathroom that we don’t quite have the money for right now.
Of course I would like to help out my family members as much as possible as well. So yes– all of the normal things that I feel like most people would want to do with some of their winnings.
THE #1 THING I WOULD DO IF I WON THE LOTTERY, would be——————————————————————-
GO ON A VACATION!!!! Well to be honest, 2 vacations really. I would like to go on a vacation with just Damian and I and then an additional vacation with the whole family. This is so important to me! We haven’t been on a family vacation since before Mayci was born. When Myles was 1 and a half we spent a weekend away so we could go to the Bronx Zoo and then to the New England Aquarium. Not even what I would consider a true vacation. And Damian and I, we took a long weekend for our anniversary about 4 years ago. And we have done a couple of overnight stays in NJ/NY at his brothers places a couple of times since then. I want a true getaway. Like more than a few days and somewhere longer than 3 hours away.
So, see– I wouldn’t be too greedy if I won the lottery. It would just be nice to be able to live comfortably for a time. Something that we don’t always do, depending on the time of year.
Unfortunately, I don’t play the lotto, so if I don’t play, I guess I will never win!
What would you do if you won the lottery??
