Here's the deal. I' d love to complete the circuit to enter more often but have been bombarded by AARP pop- ups! I am already a member so the " let us tell you how AARP can make life better" is totally frustrating.

That being said, my husband and I would take that long awaited trip to sunny Key West. Last time there was just after receiving a second cancer diagnosis and before bilateral mastectomies, chemo and radiation. The body is different but the anticipation of adventure has not faded. Snorkeling! Grand tortugas! Crazy good food!

With a windfall of money I would take a world cruise. My husband and I are retiring at the end of this month.  Combined we have worked for the same company for 75 years.  We are ready to spend time traveling and relaxing.

I would pray enough blows directly in my hands so I could pay off my debt.  Immediately,  I would pay my electric bill.  A whopping $590. +.  IM scheduled for shut-off on June 8.  Im afraid.  It will take over a year or more to come with all the money I will need to get it back on. Im praying for a miracle.

Celebrate with a huge Family Reunion (8 years is too long) We live in different countries so it is difficult.  Then I would pay off all debts, and put the rest into savings/mutual funds>
