Do you have a lottery list?

My husband and I joke around abut the things we would do if we ever became lottery winners. Over the years, the list has become fairly extensive and very detailed. We have all the typical financial plans…what we would invest, how we’d invest it…but, after that it gets fun.

I told my husband when we moved here that I never wanted to move again. I don’t care if we win the lottery for not. So, if we won the lottery, we’d have a new house built Right where our current house stands. But, to get what I’d want, it would require a housing shuffle. I would buy the house on the corner of our street and the house in between our current house and the corner one. That would give us three houses/lots in a row. I would then give the corner house to my best friend, Jennifer, as a thank you for all she’s done for me. The house in between our current house and Jennifer’s new house would be torn down. Our current house would be torn down too. After much landscaping, a new house would be built for us. The landscaping would be necessary for 2 reasons…1) it would make the yard more usable with actual flat spots and 2) the landscaping would be cover for the construction of the tunnel and secret lair between Jennifer’s house and our new one. The house would be full of cool features like hidden staircases , doors, and passages. There would also be a spiral staircase flanked by a spiral slide between the first and second floors. And, the public areas of the house would be decorated steampunk style. I’ve lusted after that ever since I heard about the infamous Steampunk House. While this housing shuffle/building extravaganza was going on, we’d go on a mammoth round the would trip/cruise. After all that, we would settle back into our normal daily life.

TitanicIIAs of last night though, our lottery list has been amended. Last night, Gabriel saw the news story about the Titanic II. Ever since the news story, Gabe’s Titanic obsession has gone into overdrive and he is now begging and pleading that I simply acknowledge a possibility of a chance of a trip on the new Titanic some day. I’ve tried explaining how expensive it will be. I’ve pointed out how long it will be until she launches (planned launch date in 2016). None of this has dissuaded him. So, I finally told him we would add it to our lottery list. Now, he wants us to buy lottery tickets.

Do y’all have a lottery list?

Would you buy tickets to travel on a replica of the Titanic that will travel the same route?

    Doesn’t everyone have a lottery list? Mine would include a new house with a sewing room roughly the size of my current apartment where I would put my new long arm quilting machine and my embroidery machine. Also would be my Mini Cooper and a lot of pottery barn furniture.

    Oh, and my house would have multiple doggy doors as I’m sick of being the door opener at least 50 times a day and lots of cat climbing places.

    My lottery list includes a house with a gourmet kitchen that opened up onto a large backyard that had an outdoor kitchen/fireplace/etc.

    Also, travel. Lots and lots of travel. Like, months at a time travel all over the world. And since I am doing this because I won the lottery, I’m totally splurging and going to a tropical island where I can stay in one of those huts that is on stilts in the water.
