My husband’s co-workers, a bunch of auditors who should really know better, put together a $5 buy-in and sent someone to Idaho to buy a bunch of lotto tickets.
Waiting for the drawing all weekend was SO exciting! I mean really, I knew I wouldn’t win, but deep down inside, I really thought that I probably WOULD win. I think my husband did too. He kept talking all weekend about needing to draft his resignation letter due to the fact that he would have to devote himself full-time to our wealth management.
I spent the weekend trying to decide if I would buy a place in Kihei Maui or Wailea Maui. It is a tough decision. One is prettier, but one is closer to nice restaurants. I also considered which charities we’d be giving much of the money to once we won, so I’m not totally shallow.
Anyway…The numbers were drawn…Oddly, NONE of our numbers were drawn. I was genuinely surprised, and…sad.
But hey…that’s the life of the lotto. Dreams come and dreams go.
After I mopped myself up after the disappointment, I started looking for another opportunity to win big.
I quickly found an opportunity on one of my FAVORITE blogs SNAP.com. They’re offering an IPAD! For free! All I had to do was enter the contest and “like” a bunch of things on facebook. It’s not the Lottery and its not 600 million dollars, but it IS and IPAD and last time I checked, they’re still pretty cool!
Wish me luck! Pretty soon I’ll be downloading a bunch of apps, I just know it! Number 26 was tons of fun, plus, I know it’ll make me rich someday soon! Even if it doesn’t it sure brought me a bunch of excitement I wouldn’t have otherwise had.
