Seriously Need Organization Help!!!!!!!!




Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.  I have sort of been MIA for the past week.  But I have been seriously busy with my AVON business this past week along with babysitting the critter while his mommy is working.  So needless to say between the two it has been rather difficult for me to get on here and get some posting done.  However, I was able to get a post done for Veterans Day, Ok, the day after but I was still able to get one done.

So here it is Saturday morning and I am covering for one of the girls at work because she has some medical issues to take care of next week and wants to get stuff done that needs to be done before Monday.  No problem other then the fact that I am having the hardest time of waking up.  But nevertheless, I thought I would take this time to do some research on how to get me ORGANIZED.  I came across this picture at the top and thought Oh yeah totally me!!!!

I am the worst for printing out things to help me get organized and then not being able to find them later to get organized.  Please tell me I am not the only one like this!!!!  Am I?

I have been searching websites left and right this morning trying to find something, anything on a style or solution to my mess.


Seriously, take a look at that desk and tell me what the problem is.  TMS (too much stuff) as my hubsand would say.  You see some AVON, THIRTY-ONE, Organizing Bins, Letter Trays and binders.  However, it isn't working out for me.  Even the filing cabinets are full of files for AVON papers, blog ideas, craft ideas and of course my bills and important papers.  However, I still have a cluttered desk.  I can't figure it out.

I read an article one time about using an Electronic Filing System and I thought it was a great idea.  The only problem is that I don't want to pay a monthly or yearly fee and I don't want to have to worry about a server or site being down or hacked.  I am sure that they (on-line software/programs/servers) have gone through a lot of hoops and measures to make sure that our information is secure.  However, Financial Institutions do as well and they still get hacked.  Plus I like to have back up hard copies for proof if need be or to make a copy for someone if they want it.

Do you think that I am being a little crazy or unreal with those thoughts?  Just last week I have heard of at least 10 different people having their PNC Bank Accounts and Business Accounts hacked and when they confronted PNC about it they were told "sorry their isn't anything we can do because we haven't been told there was a problem and to get a new Debit/Credit card then you will have to pay a replacement fee", Seriously?  All I can say is that I am glad I don't bank with them.  I am however, IMPRESSED with Fifth-Third Bank.  Why you ask?  I received a new Debit Card in the mail because I had used it at Home Depot not long ago when their system got hacked.  However, my account or information wasn't compromised this was a precaution step on their part to prevent any issues.

So I guess what I am saying is that I would rather have the touchable copies then the none touchable when it comes to paperwork.  I am even backing up my photos on Google because my computer has gone on the fritz more times then not lately and I don't want to loose any photos.

So here is a photo that I love of the organized desk/office area but don't have the money to go out and get everything but don't mind any suggestions for alternatives.  These are from Clean Mama and I love the idea again but I already do most of it.  Just don't have it this organized and clean looking.




As for my bill paying system, yeah it is pitiful.  I keep everything in a file folder and I carry it to and from work every day to make sure I don't forget to pay something.  Then after I pay it, I will either shred it or take it home and put it under the appropriate letter in the file cabinet.  So that part I am doing well and it really works for me.  However as you can tell, the rest of my desk needs help!!!!!

I love alot of the products that clean mama uses and I have fallen in love with alot of the stuff I have seen IKEA and Martha Stewart but either A) I can't afford it or B) I don't know if it will be what I actually want without seeing it in person first.
http://gifyts.com.br/blog/dicas-de-decoracao/dicas-praticas-de-organizacao/
This is one that I love but again, several issues here as well as money to buy things even close to this design.  But then again, I like alot of others as well but I can't pin them all on here or else you will be on this post for days....lol.

Thank you for stopping by and any help or suggestions you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  If you are a organizer and need a project then please consider me for the project.  I could use all the help I can get.  My shift is almost over here at work today and I need to start shutting things down in the building so I can leave and get home to the mess again and try to get inspired to get my shit organized.  Wish me luck.

Please leave your comments and ideas below as well as your website and I will get back with you as soon as I can.  Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and awesome rest of the weekend.  It is freezing cold here this weekend so I won't be out doing much.

Wednesday Hodgepodge


Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge.  I am linking up with Joyce from From This Side of The Pond.  She always comes up with some great questions and really makes you think...lol.  SO be sure to leave a comment below and then hop on over to her blog and join in on the fun.  


1. We celebrate Veteran's Day in the US of A on November 11th. When did you last interact with a member of the armed forces (either currently serving or retired)? Have you ever written a letter to a soldier, bought a meal or coffee for a solider, said an unprompted thank you to a soldier you encountered out and about somewhere? If you're not in the US, comment on a similar holiday in your own country.
--- I was married to a Army man so yes I have written a letter or two.  I try to interact as much as possible with these two very handsome men below that I call my nephews.  But sometimes it is hard.  Derek on the left seems to be always out in training or deployed and Justin on the right is back home from being injured and married to his beautiful wife Trynity.


2. You can have fifty pounds of anything at all (except money)...what would you choose?
---- Oh that is easy....DIAMONDS!!!!!!!  Since I can't have money then I will take the Diamonds and sell them for money...hehehehe.

3. When did you last receive an invitation in the 'real' mail? What was it for and did you attend? When it comes to RSVP-ing, are you an 'early responder' or a 'last minute, barely-under-the-wire' kind of guest?
---  The last invitation I received in the mail would have to be from my sister-in-laws sister for her wedding.  We weren't able to attend because on the same day I was having a baby shower for my daughter.


4. What's something you really don't like to waste?
---- Coffee!!!!!!!!  Oh yeah and Ice Cream 

5. Cheers, Friends, MASH, Seinfeld...of the ones listed, your favorite long-running sitcom?
--- Cheers I would have to say.  Only because I can relate to the scene.

6. What decision are you glad you made?
--- Having my children and getting 2 college degrees.

7. In this month of 'Thanksgiving' what is one thing that's different today than it was a year ago that you're grateful for?
--- We have a wonderful new grandbaby.  He is such a love and a great baby.  Hardly ever cries and is starting to discover he has a voice.  The sounds of a baby are magical.


8.  Insert your own random thought here.
--- I am so greatful for the wonderful family that I have.  Although sometimes I swear they like to test my nerves.  I just wish that my family was complete and that my mom, my oldest daughter were still here on earth with us and her children and my oldest son were close.  I miss them all so much.  There isn't a day that don't go by that I don't think of them and miss them greatly.  One day though I know we will all be together in Heaven where there is only love, happiness and peace.

This is the last Thanksgiving that my mom and my daughter were here on earth with us.  It was in 2007.  


This year we are going to my brothers Scott (above with mom and Heather) and Kisha's house for Thanksgiving.  My other daughter and grandson are suppose to be going to Texas (I really don't want them going) and my son has to work so me and the Hubby is going.  I know some of you may judge but that is ok.  I hate us all being apart on Thanksgiving but since my mom and daughter passed it hasn't been the same anyway.  

So I hope you all have enjoyed and be sure to leave a comment below letting me know you were here and then hope on over to Joyce's blog and join in.

Life Lost Way Too Soon!!!! R.I.P. Christina We Will Miss You!




Some of you may know that I have lost a child when she was 19 and a mother of 2.  She was the center of attention and the first grandbaby of 12 grandchildren.  She was a friend, a sister, a mother, a helpful, all around kind and loving person.  This is a picture of her and my cousin Christina when my cousin got married.  They were both pregnant and doing a baby bump photo.  (please leave the comment about a white wedding dress and being pregnant at the door, I don't want or need to hear it.)


Well today I found out that I have also lost a cousin who is in her early 30's and a mother of 2 boys.  Even though her mother and I haven't spoken in a year my heart is breaking for her right now.  I just got a call that she was hit and killed and the guy tried to get away from the scene.  Here is the link "Pedestrian Killed" to the article.  Although they are not releasing many details it has been confirmed by a mutual friend that it is my sweet baby cousin.   Just a couple of years ago they buried her daddy.  This is a photo she created when her mom and dad renewed their vows before he passed.  The caption on this is so true.  She was daddy's girl and now they are together forever in Heaven.



My heart is aching for her children, her mom, her grandmother and the rest of our family.  She was so full of life and always made people laugh.  If something was wrong and you needed help she was always there to help.  She always had your back no matter the situation and valued family above all else.  This world is a little darker today for this loss.

God has gained another angel in the sky to watch over us.  She is now with her daddy, grandpaw, my mom and my daughter in Heaven.

Dear God in Heaven, please watch out for Christina's family, give them comfort and wrap your arms around them and keep them safe.  Let them feel your love and know that Christina is with you watching over us all.  May they turn to you in their time of despair and know that they are never alone for you are with them always.  May the boys be comforted in the fact that their mother loved them above all else and will be watching them from Heaven.  May her mother and grandmother know that even though they had differences she loved her more then she ever admitted. Dear God, please give the family peace and love during this difficult time.  I pray for the person who was driving the vehicle and his family.  I know that they will never be the same.  I also pray for the people who witnessed this horrible tragedy for they will have a hard road for a while after witnessing this horrible scene.

Mary Alice, even though we haven't talked in a year I am truly sorry for you and the family.  I know all too well what you are going through and my prayers are with you all.

Wednesday Hodgepodge All About the Fall





Hello everyone and welcomed to another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge from Joyce @ From this side of the pond.  Today she is talking about Fall which is only fitting considering yesterday was the first day of fall.  So join in and don't forget to leave some blog lovin.  I would love to see how you are and what your responses are.  SO leave a message with your website and I will be sure to hope over and say hi.


1. Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying, 'Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?

--- I have certainly done that a lot lately.  I love fall and watching all the colors turn.  It is so pretty and makes the world seem new again.  I have seriously left laundry undone which is hard for me.  I have a routine of doing it on Wednesday and Saturdays but got behind.

2. Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel you're doing 'every time you turn around'?

--- Constantly paying bills.  I mean seriously I have them stretched out during the month but it seems as soon as I get one paid it is time to pay it again.  It is a vicious cycle that I wish would end.  Then again, don’t we all wish it would end with the bills?

3. How hard is it for you to 'turn the other cheek?'

--- It isn’t hard for me at all.  I truly believe in Karma and trust me when I say I don’t want to get hit by the Karma bus.  I want to be a passenger on it for sure but not the intended target.

4. When did you last turn a drawer, your car, a room, or your entire house upside down looking for something? Did you find it?

--- oh oh oh I know this one…lol.  It was certainly my car.  Unfortunately it is just like my purse.  Total disorganization and has everything in it.  I was looking for this particular product that I had bought:

EXTREME ANTI-SNAP / DISTRESSED HAIR TREATMENT


Leave in treatment for damaged hair, split ends and hair breakage for all types of distressed hair. Its enhanced formula repairs, strengthens and protects hair shine. Extreme Anti-Snap distressed hair treatment is an award winning product and one of Redken's best sellers.
Because my hair seems to always be frizzy and tangled.  I hate getting out of the shower and look like there is a rats nest in my hair.
****I am in Love with this product just so you know.  My hair looks and feels amazing.****

5. 'One good turn deserves another'...were you most recently on the giving or receiving end of that sentiment?

--- I am always trying to do something good for someone.  I was taught that you always do for others because you never know when you will need something done for you.  Yes actually I was.  I had a meeting last Saturday at Krispy Kreme and I went up to get a cup of coffee and when I handed the lady the money she told me to have a blessed day.  I think it is because she knew I was caring for my grandbaby while trying to further my AVON business.  But I like to think that she was raised like I was and you should always do something good for someone.

6. Red, yellow, and orange are the colors of fall. Also the colors of fruit. If you were permitted only one color of fruit in your diet, which would you choose? This question isn't as easy as it sounds, at least not for me.

--- Nice choices there Joyce…lol.  But I would have to say yellow.  The reason I choose yellow is because of bananas.  You can fix them in bread, you can use them in salads, they are a great source of potassium which we all need and they are sweet.

7. 
The Hunt for Red October, October Sky, Halloween...which 'October' film is your favorite?

---- Well I don’t like scary movies so it sure isn’t Halloween.  As for the other two I would have to go with The Hunt for Red October for the simple fact that I love Sean Connery.  I don’t care who you are that man is sexy.  As for the October Sky, well honestly, I have never seen it.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

--- Wow what a weekend and week it has been.  Saturday like I said earlier I had an AVON meeting that I had to take my grandbaby on because my daughter had to work.  Then Sunday was pretty busy because I signed up 2 brand new AVON representatives and then did deliveries.  Then Monday from Hell rolled around.  My daughter had to work until 2 and when I picked her up she wasn’t feeling all that well.  So I took her home and dropped her off and when I got home with the baby at 6 my daughter got up and was sick as a dog.

I ended up taking both her and the baby to the E.R. Monday night and she was diagnosed with the flu.  They admitted her and sent the baby home with me.  He has congestion and they are treating him as if he has the flu as a precaution since mommy has it.  So my oldest baby is still in the hospital and not sure when she is getting out and the baby is home with me. 

Daycare called and said that the baby was running a fever of 100.1 and wanted me to bring some Tylenol to them.  So I did and when I got there I found out that they took his temperature under his arm which meant it wasn’t a correct reading.  I got there and he was just smiling and cooing at me and didn’t feel hot at all.

Now I am back at work playing catch up from being out on Tuesday because the baby couldn’t go to daycare for 24 hrs and we have girl that left this week and won’t have a replacement until Monday next week.

Then I got the flu shoot today which I didn’t want to get but figured since my daughter is already sick and I am taking care of the baby the last thing we need is for me to get the flu. 


Plus I am fighting with myself over if I should leave my son who is 20 at home by himself for Thanksgiving while the rest of us go to my sister-in-laws and brothers house.  I asked him to take off work but someone else already requested it.  However, we are having Thanksgiving on the 16th at the in-laws so at least he can share it with us there.

Confusion, Deceit, Hurt and Love




I seen this quote and thought it would be perfect for the weekend/week I have been having so far.  Today I am writing about something that has been an issue for awhile now and I think I have finally gotten it all straightened out and behind me/us.

The weekend started out even though it was rainy and cool on Friday.  I was not about to let that get to me though.  I had plans for Saturday and hoped like hell that the weather would let up and it be a nice day.  I got up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning to get to an event that my fellow AVON Rep and I were doing that was suppose to have an attendance of about 22K to 25K people at it.  I was the first in line which surprised me because we had been told that usually by 6 a.m. or so that there would already be a line of cars waiting to get into the event to set up.  Luckily that was not the case this morning.  However, Lisa did get stuck in the long line of traffic for about 45 minutes.  When she finally got there we got things set up and ready to go.  Here is a pic of Lisa after we got everything together.

It was cool, cloudy and not as busy as they anticipated.  We did however get 94 potential new customers, 11 orders, 7 people interested in the AVON Opportunity and signed up 1 person on the spot.  Needless to say after being there at a little after 6 a.m. and not leaving until almost 7 p.m. we were exhausted from standing on our feet all day.  But it was good all in all.

So now lets move on to the bad part and the issue that has been going on for awhile.  This is where the confusion, deceit and hurt come in.

I have been dealing with a person who has accused me of having an affair with her husband that is my ex-husband.  Now mind you I am Happily Married and have been telling this woman this for sometime but she wouldn't let it go.  She kept sending me text messages with the acquisitions and threatening me.  Even though I have told her over and over and over that we are not.  Well Monday was the last straw for me.  She sent me a text message telling me to treat him good because he deserved it.

I immediately called when I received the message because I was getting tired of telling her that we weren't having an affair.  At this point this is how I was feeling only alot more meaner.


Well I called my ex-husband and just blasted him over this stupid ridiculous bullshit and told him about all of it.  Well apparently he called her and said something because she called me like 20 minutes later.  From a restricted number I might add.  I knew it was her, I just felt it.  So when I answered the phone I was less then nice.

Now mind you this is the first time I have actually talked to her in over a year.  I have no reason to talk to her.  But I was more then ready to put an end to this.  I mean this was literally to the point of harassment and me going to take out a warrant on her just to make her stop.

So I asked her why she thought he and I were having an affair and I like to have fell over when she told me.  Here is her reason, no joke, "because you all talk all the time".  "Seriously, because we talk you think we are having an affair?  Yes we talk because we have children together.   Our oldest son doesn't talk to me so I have to call his dad to find out how things are with him and our younger son doesn't talk to his dad so he calls to find out about him.   Of course we talk." Then she proceeded to tell me that I can call her because she talks to my older son and I flat out told her that I don't have to call her because she isn't the mother and she isn't the father.  So she asked why we only talked during his work hours and I quickly corrected her and told her that wasn't the only times that we talk but the main reason he won't answer his phone when I call and she is around is because he said she is "f**cking nuts".  That isn't my problem that is his.  I don't care.  I have talked to him several times sitting next to my husband.

Finally, she started to realize that her assumption was completely wrong.  She started crying and telling me all kinds of things and being the compassionate person that I am started to give her advice on her marriage.  Weird right, she is married to my ex.

Anyway, she was complaining that they aren't like they used to be and how things are so different and so on and so forth.  I explained to her that her husband does love her because he has told me numerous of times and that he wasn't cheating on her but her acting crazy makes them both unhappy.  If you aren't happy then don't stay in the relationship.  Don't argue in front of your kids and let them see that you are having problems because what they see growing up is how they will be when they are grown.

I told her that no matter what the outcome is she cannot let them kids see them fighting.  She needs to suck it up rather she is falling apart on the inside or not and make sure that them kids know that they are loved, they are safe and they will be secure regardless of the end result.  I ended the call by telling her to get herself together by going and taking a long hot bath and relaxing before they get home from school and when hubby gets home to go for a walk just the two of them and talk.  If you don't change the behavior then you aren't going to change the results.


This quote is so fitting because no matter how difficult things in life are we have a choice we just have to choose to make the choice and act upon it.

So today I sent her a message asking if she took my advise.  She replayed with yes and that I probably saved her marriage.  She said he is stubborn (you think, I was married to him I know) but she thinks he realized what she was trying to say and how she feels.


So now that we got past the confusion on my part, the deceit she thought he was doing, the hurt she was feeling we are now at the love portion.  They are going to have a long road but I know that they do truly love each other and I told her that I honestly hope they can fix things.  If you truly love someone then you will figure away to work through your issues and be as one.

So I believe that even though something was starting out horribly wrong that in the end when you stop and talk about things and go straight to the source then you will find the issue you think you have really isn't an issue at all.  Just talk and be open and honest with one another.

#Blogtober14 Day 3....One Thing I Can't Live Without







Hello everyone and welcome back to another day of #Blogtober14 with Helene@heleneinbetween and Taylor @ The Daily Tay.  There are no rules but they would appreciate it if you did link up with them.  Each day there is a link up at the bottom of the daily post.  So sit back, relax and join in on the fun.

So today's (October 3) prompt is "One Thing You Can't Live Without"...

Besides the obvious of family and friends, this one is kind of hard for me because I have several things.  But if I had to choose it would have to be Music.  Now this may be shocking to some of you because I am a die hard coffee drinker.  Yes I mean die hard because I drink it morning, noon and night.  Hell I have a cup of coffee on me most all the time except when I am sleeping.  I am not sure why I drink coffee so much because it sure don't keep me awake.  I think I have become immune to it.

Anyway, totally off track there.  The one thing I would pick would be Music.  I have to have it on when I am driving, when I am working out or somewhere in the back ground when I am at work.  It drives me crazy to have to sit in silence and let my mind just run crazy.  The silence gives me way to much time to think and the thoughts are random, jumbled and so out of order.  I don't think that the music really makes them organized, unjumbled or in order but it sure does let me have a blank mind and totally focus on the task at hand.

I do love the 80's music because it is more up beat and personal which I guess is why I am stuck in the 80's which isn't surprising if you knew me personally.  I mean seriously I have the exact same hairstyle that I had in the 80's and the only difference is that there is a little grey in there...lol.

But yes I love music rather it be hip hop, classical, country, rock, hard rock or rap.  I love music.  I want to turn on the radio and blare the speakers just so I can dance around the house and clean because it makes me feel good and makes me move but at the same time keeps me focused on the task at hand.

So what about you, what is your favorite kind of music?  That One thing you CAN'T live without?  I would love to hear from you all.  Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know you stopped by.

Dear Trent, thank you for everything that you do for me and our family.  I love you beyond words.  I really enjoyed being on vacation last Friday together and spending the day with just you and me.

Dear Victoria, I am so proud of the mommy you are and the woman you have become.  You deserve all the happiness and joy that life can give you.

Dear Brandon, I hate that you always have to work at nights.  I wish you could work during the day sometimes so we could see you more.  I hate going to bed at night knowing you are not home.  It drives me crazy.

Dear KayLee and Aadyn, We Love You Both and Miss You Both terribly.  I wish that we could get to see you both and be a part of your lives.  I know in time we will get to see you again but I wish it was sooner rather than later.  You are growing up so fast and we are missing out on so much.

Dear Christian, you are so damn cute.  I Love waking up to you in the mornings.  You are such a doll baby and cuddly.  I Love You and I am so glad you are in my life.

Dear Kisha and Scott, keep your heads up.  I know things will get better just give it time.

Dear Kevin and Marie, I am glad that you got to come over last weekend.  It was good seeing you all.  Hope things are getting better for you both. 

Dear headache, go away.  I am not in the mood for you today.  It is Friday and you have stuck around all damn day today.  I am going to take my meds when I get home so you will leave.

#Blogtober14 Day 2...What is My Dream Job Past and Present



So I am joining up with Helene over at Helene In Between and Taylor over at The Daily Tay for October Blog Every Day event.  So Please stop by one of their links or both and join in on the fun.  Don’t forget to visit other bloggers and leave some blog loving.

So the prompt for this 2nd day of October is "What is Your Dream Job when you were young and what is it now".

I remember when I was little I wanted to be a lawyer.  I don't know if that is because I wanted to help people or just because I wanted to make sure that people didn't get away with stuff.  Yes I know it is a weird Dream Job.  So I continued to help people all of my life and even went to college for Paralegal Studies and have an Associates.  Then I realized when I went to court over an accident that I was a victim in that I was terrified of judges.  Who would have thought that considering I always wanted to be a lawyer.  

Now where this fear came from I have no clue.  I have never been in trouble, except for 2 speeding tickets, so my fear isn't warranted.  I have always handled all of my legal issues in regards to my kids and divorce without an attorney and always won.  Hell I have been offered a job 6 times by the County Attorney's office here for Child Support.  I mean seriously why pay a lawyer for something I can do myself.  As long as you have a law library in your town or city then you can look up anything there is to look up for a defense, rebuttal or reference and the clerks are always willing to help.

I remember one time I had to take my ex back to court to get custody of my son from him when he agreed to take him while I was taking care of my dying mother.  Man was that a disaster on his part.  He thought he would walk in the court room and say a bunch of B.S. about me and the whole situation and when it came my turn to speak the judge immediately ripped him a new ass.  It was hilarious and sad at the same time.  But I told him when I meet him that he better never mess with me or my kids because he would regret it.  He has learned his lesson needless to say.

So my dream job now?  Hmmm that is a bit harder for me to figure out.  I have been in Accounting for over 16 yrs now and I absolutely hate it.  But it is a job that I am good at and it pays well.  I think my dream job would be a photographer.  I love photography and I take some pretty decent photos but I want to be phenomenal at photography.  I want to be published in magazines and people say WOW at my photos.  I do have some amazing photos from various trips I have taken that I have been told by numerous people that they should be printed and mounted on my wall or that I should sell them online.  But I just haven't really had the chance to sit down and do that.

I work full-time and I also Sell AVON which I love and hope to eventually make a full-time career at it because that would give me the opportunity to pursue my dream of being a photographer.  I know that with AVON you can work your own hours, as much or as little, whenever and wherever you want to work and you can earn as much or as little as you want.  AVON has changed the lives of so many people and we have several Multi-Million Dollar AVON Representatives in the U.S. alone.  So they are doing something right.

So I guess you could say that I went from wanting to help people to wanting to observe and capture (get it)people with Photography while becoming a Full-Time AVON Representative that will be helping people with all of their beauty needs.

So What is your dream job?  Did you accomplish it or still working on it?  How did it change over the years?

If I Won The Lottery with Blogtober14







So I am joining up with Helen over at Helen In Between Taylor over at The Daily Tay for October Blog Every Day event.  So Please stop by one of their links or both and join in on the fun.  Don’t forget to visit other bloggers and leave some blog loving.

So for the first day of October (yes I am behind) the prompt is:  “If I Won the Lottery, I’d” and then fill in the blank.  Wow the things running through my mind on this one.

First I would change my name, then Change my phone number, and hire an attorney.  After that I would pay off all of my debt and start buying stock in Proctor & Gamble, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson and put the rest divided up by CD’s, various stocks, Savings Accounts and bank accounts.  After all the banks can only insure so much. 

I would go on to start a 501 fund in my late daughters name for single mothers and orphaned children.   Start a charity for our Veterans because they have sacrificed so much for our freedom and it would be nice to be able to give back something to them for that service.

After all of the above I would go traveling.  I want to see Paris, Rome, Venice, all of the United States which is only about 17 or so states and have a custom built house in Colorado, California, Florida and North Carolina. 

I would also set up a trust for all of my Grandchildren and buy my kids a new home that I would make them pay rent on because they need to learn responsibility.

I don’t play the lottery often because my husband buys the tickets.  The one time that I did buy tickets a lot, I bought one that had all 6 numbers that were drawn, but they were all on different lines.  I was made as a wet hen and vowed to never buy a ticket again.  But let’s face it when the lottery was up to 400 Millions I had to buy one.  Actually my whole work bought $250 worth of quick picks and we only won $3 in free tickets.  Talking about upset. 

So that is what I would do if I Won the Lottery.  How about you?  What Would you do?
