A car just replace the one I currently have and I'd be moving ASAP and yeah medical/health insurance would be a good thing too. I wouldn't probably start up the advisors until I get settled, a few months later and have myself prepared to be able to not only know what they're talking about and not come off as someone who's clueless. Financial planning shouldn't be too complicated in the first place, but it's good to know all the options.

 

Actually, maybe I should have sad gas... Since I'd need it to get where ever I'm going to be going, whether it be to see a lawyer or to claim my winnings.

You can't predict random.

      The very first thing I'd buy is the services of a good financial advisor and a good attorney ...

       

      Then new teeth

        Oh, boy!  Can I relate to that!   Just be careful you choose the right dentist. I've spent so much on my teeth, if I kiss a man goodnight, I have to charge him a bridge toll.

                Very nice indeed.  Love the pool area. 

                That house in my area would probably cost 2 - 3 times that amount.  Possibly even four times the amount.

                  wow.  I was thinking I was spending too  much! I'm VERY paranoid about losing it all.

                      If that's your only big splurge, I wouldn't worry to much about losing it all.  In the long run it will appreciate and provide you with even more money.  Now, if you go out and buy one for each of your family members... that's a whole other story.  LOL

                        I would go away first, I really need to get away, I've been too stressed out about things.. Then I would get a house, far away from where I live now,  and get another car. And figure out the rest along the journey.

                          STRESS IS KILLING ME! So..that said....I would have to buy a new mini van and pack it up with what little clothes I own and take a vacation somewhere tropical with my whole family (buy clothes while on vacation haha).  I've had so much bad luck and stress lately that I just need to get away and relax.  Then when I'm calm......my family and I will sit along the beach in those chairs and umbrellas drinking a nice chilled beer......just like in the commercial.  No words said..just silence.  Well at least until someone says........YEP........or WHAT NEXT? lol

                              True, but hopefully if I ever win...it will be in the summer time.

                               

                              if not.......

                              I think the school could understand having the kiddies on the downlow for a week .....IN FLIPPIN PARADISE! haha.

                              I would be very scared if I won and the whole town found out and  just handed my kids a sack lunch and said "have a good day honey." lol
