Lottery

I have a bit more time to daydream about my lotto tickets. In case you've been living under a rock the Powerball lottery is up to $1.5 billion dollars. That is $1,500,000,000.00 That's a whole lot of freaking zeros. We don't normally play the lottery, but decided to let ourselves get caught up in the excitement and the daydreaming of what that much money would be like. Our discussions have been pretty fantastical and fun the past couple of days. Everything from the practical like hiring lawyers and financial advisers and setting up trust funds and donating to humanitarian causes to the more fun things like opening up a B&B with horses or building mansion overlooking the city. We've joked about personal chefs and buying all the lego kits. The girls said they'd redecorate their room and go on vacations. It sort of feels like Christmas did when we were kids. All that excitement and potential of what could be under that tree the next morning really is pretty fun. And who knows, maybe, just maybe our ticket beats the odds of one in 292 million... in the meantime, I'll be daydreaming...
