    If I hit the Powerball $260 million I would immediately retire from my job. I would take a year off from working and spend more time at home with the family.I currently work nights and weekends and feel like i am not home enough. I would travel with my son looking at potential colleges that he may attend in Sept 2014. I would also buy a larger apartment in lower Manhattan to live in and a vacation Condo down in Florida (Siesta Key). I have a brother and sister that I would love to help make their lives a little easier. My mom would want for nothing. After my year off I would find a place to volunteer helping troubled youth and/or sick children. I would also like to volunteer and donate to My two favorite charities, which are Make a Wish and the Special Olympics. My golf game could use an improvement and I would like to get a boat(nothing fancy) and do some fishing.

    The best thing would be that Pete could give up work. That would make us both so happy. I'd buy homes for us, my son and daughter. Money to siblings and the charities we support. Of course, also a first class trip to WDW.
    Yes, I do spend a lot of time daydreaming. :)

    There's nothing wrong with day dreaming









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I don't know to be honest.

    We always need new pillows in this house though.

    you'd think it'd be easy but no?

    I like pillows that have a bit of resistance to them, not talking bricks but *something* there and ones that don't go hot within seconds so I dont need to keep turning them over.

    do some mythical beasts exist? If so, I don't know where to buy them :(

    I guess it would depend on how much we actually won. We would definitely pay off our bills and retire if we won enough. Given the current Powerball amount, if we were to win that we'd probably buy one of those new houses they just built at WDW.
