lottery

How horrible is it that I plan my life's goals around winning the lottery?!?!
I am not an avid lottery player. If a have an extra dollar... maybe from change at the gas station, (like there is change now with these gas prices!!!) I will purchase a power ball ticket. So for a dollar i get 3 or 4 days of dreaming about what i would do with the money if i won. But, lately it has become more detailed. In fact it unfortunately has come down to "I can eat that huge bowl of ice cream because when i win the lottery I'm just going to go have lipo..." I have my floor plans of the house i would build all drawn out, even the colors and decor of each room... And not that i think that i will actually win... but it sure makes life a lot easier if i did. Though, i have heard stories of people that say that it doesn't get easier... actually harder... instead of fighting about not having enough money, you fight about other things. I suppose no matter what the amount of money is that you have, everyone has trials....
How fun would it be though... My biggest thing is that i would be a little secret Santa. No charities.... i want to do that all on my own.
How awesome would it be to get a new car with a big red bow on it and park it in some one's driveway that all they have is a little beater car that keeps dying. Or, purchase food storage for someone you know who could really use it, then have it delivered anonymously.
Pay off someones school loans so they just don't have that extra stress in their life....
That is what i would do with my money... spend my whole life doing things in secret.
I wonder if i could start now even if i don't have a dime to my name???

All in all, it sure is fun to think about... man what a $1 lotto ticket can do for my imagination.
