So either my blog ate all my auto-posts set up for this week or I just dreamed that I did them. Either is possible, to be honest.
Sorry to all the DC bloggers for missing happy hour again – something important came up last minute, unfortunately. I guess that’s life!
I wish I could remember what my posts for the week were about. The fact that I can’t remember makes me think that maybe I did make up the fact that I wrote them and scheduled them to post. Anything is possible. Plus, right now, all I can focus on is that there are about 6 hours left between me and the weekend. I am ready.
This morning, a coworker and I were talking about the guy from Missouri who won the lottery recently and just seemed so humble about it. He didn’t seem to have any grand plans for the money – getting his teeth fixed (if you didn’t see the pictures, he was missing some front teeth), taking his kids and his girlfriend’s kids to Disney World, paying his bills. I hope this guy gets some good financial advisors in his life and doesn’t end up like so many lottery winners – broke. When you have money like that, suddenly you have a whole lot of friends you never knew you had. Family too.
We were talking about what we would do with the money if we won. Number one, I would quit my job. Good bye, work. I’d probably get either a part-time job doing something I loved or just be a professional volunteer, because I don’t know what I would do with my time otherwise. I would buy a reasonably sized home, nothing too extravagant. Maybe a vacation home somewhere too. I think the big splurge would probably be flying first class all the time. But I probably wouldn’t do a ton of traveling, maybe one nice trip a year.
It’s kind of fun to dream. I never buy lotto tickets, so it’s not as if these dreams will ever come true, but the fantasy is fun.
