    Relocating my husband and son into a short term rental in a different state is a priority. We would have a close friend occupy our current house while facilitating with the movers to put our belongings in storage prior to placing it on the market.

    We would:

    Organize a financial game plan with our advisers and attorney.

    Spend a month or two visiting many communities in order to find a new area to lay our roots 

    Purchase a home in an exclusive guard gated community. 

    Follow and grow our investments and if things go as planned then rewarding ourselves with a vacation every 3-4 months.

          I would spend time in my garden when I wasn't traveling around.

          I'm with you on this, traveling and spending time in my garden.  I was going to say travel when the weather is bad but then, winning a lottery I would not be living in a place with cold lol.

            I beg to differ with your assumption. We currently live in a gated community but only one of the entrances has a  guard. The other entrance is access card or bar code activated so many people are able to sneak in. This is by no means a high end neighborhood as most of the homes range in value from 500k to the 1.5 million.

            If I was fortunate enough to win a Mega million or Powerball jackpot then an exclusive guard gate community with multi-million dollar homes would be my preference for a place to live. The prices are inflated but that is the price you pay for safety and security.

            There are several communities throughout the United States similar to what I am referencing that make the privacy of their residents their main objective. These communities have video surveillance throughout the perimeter and record any guest driving up to the guard house. You only get passed the gates if one of the residents or someone from the GM's office has forwarded your name to guards manning the entrance. Realtors do not gain access even if they attempt to bring in a celebrity or VIP without first making arraignments with the club.

            You can continue to refer to all gated communities as a "fool's paradise" but I respectively disagree.

                There is at least 1 gated community where I live, one way in, one way out.  Even guests can not drive into the community, they have to park out on the main road and when somebody is hosting a party, there are some pretty nice cars parked on the side of the road. Police officers can not go in there unless there is a call for service.

                          I would have my own place of business and just kick it there from time to time. I'll own a restaurant and just go there and work somedays. I really like the "cool boss" aspect, I want to do that. I would also love to become an assistant coach at my old school. No time for that now, but with that kind of money, you have time to do whatever you want without a care in the world.

                          Yeah but that hooneymoon would last quite a while before I got into all that lol.
