    I would start my international work with orphans.

    I would relax a bit more about bills!

  4. The one thing that keeps me trying to win the lottery…I’d buy a huge farm in the middle of nowhere and open a home for stray or unwanted dogs.

    1. I like that idea, especially since my mom had Alzheimer’s when she died. Good, external stimulation might have made her last years more enjoyable.

      hugs…hugmamma. 🙂

  6. My answer is the same as Drea!!!! I have it all planned out. And of course pay off all of our bills and help family. No big diamonds or boats. Clothes yes. Of course a new house because it would be on the massive acreage I would buy to take care of the animals! Not too big of a house though. No need for that.

  8. I would buy all the tech gadgets I have been dreaming of. The first in the line would be a Macbook Pro and then an iMac. I can’t think of what I’d do next with the rest of the money because of the excitement I’m having thinking of owning a Mac. 😀

    Hope to post something later today on Daily Sajib.

  9. First, I would split the money with my siblings right down the line.

    Second, I would save my mom from a life of rehab, by getting her the best treatment and living facility possible.

    Third, I would get a life by moving out on my own, paying off any loans (car, etc.).

    Forth, I would quit my job and take a vacation (with a friend) so I could sort myself out.

    Fifth, I would register for another college course, so I could further myself.

    Sixth, I would donate money to Sick Kids Hospital and Canadian Blood Services and my church.

    Lastly, I would relax and enjoy life.

  11. I will be the luckiest man because it happens on my birthday.

    I won’t rush into spending the money immediately.

    At a later date, I will identify some charitable projects and work with them. Make some sound investments here and there and keep the rest in the bank and spend it wisely,

  12. After taxes, paying off my debts, and a couple of well aimed charitable donations, I would buy a hundred acres or so in the middle of nowhere and start up a small self sustaining (with alternative power supply so I can live off the grid) organic farm that supports a vegan lifestyle. Finally, I would settle in and write as many kick ass books as I can before I die.

If I were to win a million dollars, tax free, I would pay off my husband’s truck loan, pay off the house, get my husband’s big garage built that he would like to have, get him a golf cart, get us a pontoon boat, pay off 2 other loans, pay off my son’s college debts and Dr. bills from a skiing accident in 2006, pay my parents back the money I have had to borrow in the last 2 years since I lost my job, pay the $400 to the church that they loaned to us, get me a convertible car, pay back tithing to the church and put the rest in a savings account.
