Right now, it''s fast-forwarding through the next year of immigration paperwork, wedding stuff and saving for a house to when J and I are living comfortably and can afford a car and some cats!

Winning the lottery is always mine. In fact, I make up elaborate plans regarding just what I''d do if I actually won. The blueprint is all set. Now I just have to win...


Right now my daydream consists of finishing my survey and results paper for class next week

Would you quit dramatically? Or quietly?

I would probably do it as professionally as possible. But sticking around for two weeks would be difficult.

How I would do anything to be at home, in bed, sleeping. I can''t think of anything else but that.

That''s MY dream!! Dream stealer.


Except I wouldn''t quit. I''d finish school and then try to do something helpful with the rest of my life.

A few years ago winning the lottery was a GOAL of mine and not just a dream. It was actually in my life plan to win the lottery
. Considering I never buy lotto tickets (I love scratch cards though!) it wasn''t a very active goal.

Right now I am constantly daydreaming about wedding stuff. I have a one-track mind these days...

Two weeks??!! hahahahahahaha. yea right. You''re too responsible Gypsy.

I like my job and all that, but if I won the lottery, I''d be out faster than it takes to say, "I quit."

Meeeee tooooo.
I''d pay off all of my bills, my parents bills, and my brothers, and then buy my parents a house and myself a house. DH and I would finally get a honeymoon anywhere we wanted, and then we would have BABIES.

Oh, and I would build a photography studio.

My family moved when I was 11, and the former owners of our new house had built a tiny darkroom upstairs. I had just taken a photography class, and was devastated when my parents decided to turn the darkroom into a bathroom. Hmph!

There are days when I'm pretty sure I wouldn't even bother to drive IN, let alone give two weeks notice. LMAO. I do fantasize about PHONING in my resignation, packing up my laptop in a fed ex box with my signed letter confirming my resignation and mailing them in.

Bee* I won 2 bucks yesterday. I should qualify my desires... winning a large enough lottery jackpot that I would afford to quit, pay off all debts, buy a decent home, fun John's dream of going to culinary school then opening a cafe, and fund my own dreams.

It's just wordier that way.l

Mine is the lotto too. I day dream all the time about it and buy a ticket of the standard version once a week. Once I won $3.00!
lol

My other day dream is a bit lame, but I'm kind of hoping to start a small in-home daycare so I can make money and be home with my kids. I'm not sure if all the chaos will drive me nuts, but still beats being stuck in traffic for a few hours a day like that one job I was going to be hired on for (which I may still get. . .supposedly) would have resulted in.

DH and I want to buy a schooner and run week-long trips out of Maine and Nova Scotia in the summer, and the Caribbean (Cuba, especially) in the winter. Oh yeah, and we want a house with an acre on the water somewhere in both locations too.

An acre of land has its downside: mowing the lawn (I know because my DH constantly complained and dreaded the weekends)! It''s not fun, not even with a riding lawn mower.

I would like to get my first novel published then move to Aspen to work on my second one.

OR (more reasonably!), I would like to find a job in Aspen that will pay me enough $$$ that I can actually afford to live there.



Dee kicks her feet up on the ottoman, pours another glass of wine, and stares at pictures of the mountain... Ah....

Actually my DH fantasizes more about winning the lottery than I do. He''s always worrying about security (bodyguards patrolling our current property etc.) and asking whether I''d move or stay here. The list of questions goes on...

I, on the other hand, have stopped buying tickets completely. I''m not much of a gambler by nature anyway. Once I had the first four numbers of six and nearly had a coronary because I was worried that our comfortable lifestyle and current friends would all change...and not for the better
.

What a worrywart I am.

Mmm. That''s a good one.

At the moment I am fantasizing about getting the proposal I am supposed to be finishing funded.

my hundred year old house, fully renovated and extended. um...and the 200k i need to do it...

getting more organized with my books and being more aggressive in finding the agent i really want so i can get some serious sales instead of just kicking around in the shallows like i currently am.

so - somewhere in my head i am an internationally renowned author living in a beautiful victorian house in westchester country with prize winning dogs and the best husband on earth...

yes...that sounds pretty dream-worthy....

(i''m pretty sure somewhere in there my mortgage is paid off, too)

I like the way you daydream!

I''m got the westchester county. Minus the renowned author/big victorian house/paid mortgage/prize winning dogs/husband part.

We dream of a huge lottery win. I''d like to buy a bunch of land and have a place for cats and dogs, no kill. And I''d like to have money to help kids..there are so many kids being taken from homes due to abuse and neglect..I would like to give them a home that is filled with LOVE and hugs and kisses. And maybe find a way to stop those things before they start.

My husband''s business growing enough so that my job is not the main source of our income and benefits. It would make me working in a field that ebbs and flows much less stressful.
