18-20-25-31-36, 11

Wow. Missed by one. If only that 11 had been a 7.

I haven't gone to the DC Lottery Headquarters yet, but I'll probably go at lunch. I can't stop shaking. I bought the ticket at the liquor store last week, but forgot to check it until this morning. Now I'm totally paranoid that I'm going to lose the ticket between here and the Frank Reeves Center.

What should I do? It's not enough to quit working entirely, but I could take a year or two off while the kids are still little. Bump and I could take a vacation, but where should we go? Should we take the kids? Leave them with grandparents? You want them?

Should I stop being silly and stash all the money in the kids' college funds, or buy a bigger house than we thought we could afford?

What would you do?

Oh, and Happy April 1.

Or! You could give your fake millions to me. I'll buy a fake house with a big fake yard. What do you think?

I agree with Melissa. I'd totally give it to all the people who commented on my blog. On April 1, anyway.

I totally agree with the above...you shold give your April Fools winnings to your faithful (and even de-lurking) commenters on your awesome blog!

What a coincidence. The boy and I were pondering yesterday, what we'd do with our $18 million winnings - if we were to win.

So far all we have is a single lucky dip ticket, and several days until the draw.

It's even funnier when you read it on April 2 and have let your guard down for April Fools Day jokes.
