would you do this if you won the lottery

  1. I was wondering
    Would you still do this if you won the lottery?????

    I was wondering would I still do this if I won the lottery. I went to play the power ball lottery today, because today was just awful and I figured why not play the lottery. The jack pot is 60 million.
    As I sat and pondered how I would spend my winnings. I wondered could I really not ever nurse again???
    I think I would still be a nurse somehow it is in my blood part of me. Although with a 60 million dollar bank account behind me I would definately say when, where and how I would be a nurse.



    What about you????? What would you do????

    I'd work per diem, after an extended vacation. I love what I do and I don't think I could ever really give it up, but I sure could stand to do it alot less.

    I would pay off my condo in CA and my house in AZ. I would throw out my tenant in my house in AZ and refurbish both places with a decorator. I would set my kids up with a HUGE college fund so I wouldn't have to worry about that.

    BUT, I would finish school I think. I worked too hard for too long to get where I am.

    Then I would work when I wanted in both states -- probably agency. Just to keep busy in between other travels...

    Would not even work out a notice. Would call from my cell phone on the way to picking up my winnings. That is reason, I will not win the lottery and have to keep working until they put my old bones in a nsg home bed! LOL

    I would definitely continue to nurse...........I am to graduate December this year, and have just got a grad position starting February, so I am eager to start my career...........BUT I think I would first have a really good holiday, fulfill that dream of seeing New York, and set my family up financially for the future.

    I would do it, for free, in underserved countries all over the world. Like a working vacation!

    and waste the rest!!

    I would not work. I believe I couldnt have enough mal practice insurance to cover me as soon as somone found out I was a multi millionaire they would have law suites coming and going. I would pay off my bills, set my kids up for life and travel and enjoy the rest of my life.

    Very good point! Hadn't thought of it from that angle...
