Have you ever thought about what you would do if you won the lottery? I’m not talking about some nominal amount. I’m talking the big Powerball jackpot. The one that sends people who don’t normally play the lottery to gas stations in throngs to stand in line and buy a ticket.
If I won the jackpot, I’d take things slow. I don’t think I would buy some grand house or a bunch of expensive things. Although Barry and I would probably find some land somewhere and build our own house. I hope that I would manage my winnings wisely to ensure a comfortable life (there would definitely be a team of professionals helping me here…. some kind of estate planner and an accountant). I’d pay off debts and make annual charitable donations. I would not work anymore… unless I wanted to. But it wouldn’t be about earning a living anymore.
I’d have the freedom to do what I want. That would definitely include traveling the country (something Barry and I always talk about), and eventually traveling the world. I’d spend more time with family and I’d probably also hike the Appalachian Trail. In short, I would live my life.

Do you play the lottery? I bought a scratcher when I turned 18, but that’s it.
