    It was featured on our local new's website so now I'm tempted to go buy a few! The anticipation is part of the fun and being able to help others would definately be a top priority! :)

    Hmmm...I haven't played the lottery in years. But what a time to start, right?

    What would you do if you won? I'd pay off my house and keep it as a rental, then buy a big house outside of the city with enough acreage to keep a few horses. (My childhood dream!)

    I don't gamble, but my dad & boyfriend will buy a few bucks worth, so if they win, I benefit too! :)

    My husband bought some today on his way home. We don't usually play the Lotto. I don't know what we would do if we won. I think we would first pay off the house. If I would give any money to any charity it would be SIDS research.

    It is kind of fun to think about. We live in a very small town. So we would probably have to move, where no one knew us. I am sure we would have friends we didn't even know we had come knocking on our door.

    Thanks for the heads up-we'll def. pick a few up tonight!!

    Then I would teach my student by day, and travel to decorate all your classrooms for free on my vacations! (my dream 'job')

    I bought some. I usually do when the prize gets big. I would pay things off...give to 2 charities I have in mind...and say 'NO!' to a lot of people asking me to 'help them out'....if I haven't talked to you in the past year...I think not...

    The only thing that would annoy me about winning that much money is the people who come crawling to you begging for a handout. I have some relatives that I bet would be knocking on my door the next morning. I wish they would not announce the winner's name unless they wanted it to be known. I can just imagine what a ruckus it would cause LOL

    ETA: I caved and just bought $5 worth of tickets :blush:

    Jem,
    I would love you to come and decorate my classroom, especially if you win millions of dollars!:)

    I didn't get out like I was planning because something came up so have been on the phone/text/internet for a few hours straight.
