Have you been bitten by the billion dollar bug??

In just a few hours, the largest Powerball Jackpot drawing will take place.  1. 5 BILLION dollars! That's just CRAZYTOWN!!!!  I NEVER buy lottery tickets, I don't think I'm very lucky.  But because one of my co-workers put a pool together on Friday, I caved!  And again this week when the jackpot reached the billion dollar mark, I re-uped.

There has been a lot of chatter these last few days about what we'd do with the billion.  How would you spend it, would you still work, etc.  So I've been thinking about it a lot.

I said I would definitely still work.  When I'm on vacations from work, I always say that I'd be ok never working again, but in all honesty, I think I'd be bored...because everyone else I know, would be working. LOL  But I'd enjoy working part time.  Ideally, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday!

And I'd definitely take a lot of time of to travel the world.  Give me a month of beaches and margaritas!!

I'd of course pay off my mortgage and all my bills, and donate some to my favorite charities!

I'd do a lot of shopping too.  I don't think I'd be more extravagant.  My ass would still be shopping Target!!

And last but not least, I'd definitely get a driver!! :)

Oh to dream!!

My principal recently told us that the state lottery was created to provide money to schools.  I wonder where that all went awry.  And the fact that the government and the country takes more than half is ridiculous.  So the winner won't really be a billionaire, but rather a 5 hundred-ish millionaire!!

This was floating around Facebook this week....
And this is what wrong with the internet, but it's good for a laugh!  Every American would only get $4.33. With what the government takes, it'd be less!  It wouldn't even cover the U.S. population!

The odds of winning the Powerball tonight are 1 in 292,000,000.  HA!!  Nevertheless, my fingers are crossed!!

So did you play?  And what would you do with the money if you were the lucky winner?  Let me know in the comments below!!


  1. I bought a ticket last week but it is so not me and those odds are just for the birds. My husband probably bought another ticket. If you won/win can I have 5k? That's all I need lol. xoxoxox Amanda

  2. If you won the money, I would make sure you experience some Canadian winter!

  3. I bought a ticket 2 minutes before the cut off and didn't get one number! But fun to dream about even if for a few hours :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
