It's about 2AM and I just checked my numbers for tonight.  As I was putting them away (no winners) I noticed I had purchased my 4 Lotto tickets already on Monday.  If you look at the thread I started on "checking your tickets" on Monday  http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/169290

you will see that the first and last comment I posted both said that I bought my 4 "regular" lottery tickets for Wed night.  I wasn't lying, and I seriously doubt if anyone noticed, but the comments don't make sense.  I wish I had spent the money on 4 QPs or spent it on another game.  Well, it's only $4, just a little more than a gallon of gas!  LOL

So, has this ever happened to you or is this a sign that I'm getting old, too stressed out, losing my mind, too blonde or need to stop playing the lottery?

 Crazy

Seriously, do you always purchase tickets on the same day?  That's what happened to me tonight.   I forgot that I took the $5 I won Sun and bought Wed night lottery tickets on Mon, which I never do.   In other words, I changed my routine.

    Well its always better to buy '2' of the same tickets than NOT buy a ticket that may win.  If you had hit it would have been a double hit!!

    Money won is twice as good as money earned!

      It's ok to lose your mind, as long as you remember when and where you lost it, so you could get it back.

      I rarely play the Fantasy five, but I bought 3 QPs last night. I got the 1, and the 7. I just can't wait to go and get my free QP...lol

      WHOO HOOOOOOO!!!!

        True.  When I realized I had 4 duplicate tickets, I was hoping for at least 3/6 so I'd win $10.   Even a free ticket would have been nice (although Lotto doesn't offer one) just to get some of the money back.  Again, it's just $4, but I don't think I'll buy tickets any more on a different night.  In this case I went out of my way to get them, which I usually don't do.  Still, Albertson's is, at the most, 3 miles from my home.  My mind just clicked on "it's Lotto night. Time to buy tickets." 

        Pac, I've seen a lot of winning Free Tickets.  Ya never know.  Good luck!

          There are always people trying to tear something down, I say never give up, keep up the good fight,  if you aren't in it, your chances are zero, I think you are going to hit, stay in it and keep playing your numbers,  they will fall in your favor, it will happen.  Nanny nay sayers aren't in it,  they have no stake, hang in there, it will go your way. I think it has been over a dozen years, it is not worth giving up. I've had two sets going on a dozen years and they have never hit anywhere 5 for 5,  so hope is alive.

            And there are people who always embelish something without merit or practicality.
