With the jackpot so high, I rushed out to buy lottery tickets earlier this week, so this week’s blog topic is apropos: If I won the lottery…
Well, of course, I would buy the obligatory new house and new car if my winnings were great enough. Our car has well over 100,000 miles on it, so I think I’d be justified in finding a new ride. And sadly, my husband’s health is not great, so a home closer to medical facilities would be a relief and a blessing.
Besides those obvious purchases, I would give money to family and to causes dear to me, the arts and mental health. I would also indulge in taking classes to my heart’s content.
A shopping spree? Maybe a mini one. A girl can always use some new clothes, but my lifestyle isn’t such that I need anything too fancy.
I think the greatest benefit of winning a lottery in whatever amount would be peace of mind, just knowing the money is there for any unforeseen crises. I do, after all, live in the hurricane belt. In fact, I drew on my experience with Hurricane Charley in Southern Hospitality, the second book in Calusa Town Tales.
But enough about me. Read about the pipe dreams of other authors here.
