    Give half of it to my friend who bought me the ticket, buy my parents a house, I guess I would have to to do the same for my husband's parents. Pay off our debt and renovate our house, give some to charity, help out a family member who is struggling financially very badly right now (been there and it's an awful feeling), and then divide the rest by three for our kids future.
    I would actually hate to win 27 mil or whatever it is, therefore no extravagant plans. I would continue on with my current life plan because I'm really happy with where my life is heading and I want to play the rest out.

    ETA - oh 40 mil. Well , I'd still do the same, would make my own retirement fund as well then I guess.

    Get a house with a bathtub and a laundry.


    and maybe invest so that it generates a healthy income and also set up a philanthropic trust sort of thing so that I could keep on giving to people and charities in need.

    Is my halo twinkling in the moonlight?

    hmm - what exactly is the protocol for a win that big?

    A few mil? half?


    Me - I would travel. For ever. just take DH and DD and travel the world. When it was time for grandma time, I could fly them to wherever we happened to be (of course I would pay all their debts/house etc, so they would be free to come to me )
