Has anyone ever won something big?

  1. [font=Fixedsys]I have no idea why I am wondering about this and don't know if it has been posted before but was just wondering if anyone has won something big like a sweepstakes or trip. I keep watching that show about extreme makeovers of homes and wishing big...So, that must be the etiology of my thoughts. When I was a little kid I won twenty dollars at bingo which I of course never saw because it went directly to mom...Besides that and a contest or two regarding the naming of animals, I can't say that I have won anything of extreme monetary or epic proportion. Can you???? If not, then just tell me something you would like to win or almost came close to winning....

    hmmm, I went with a friend to Bingo (only because we were supposed to go to a club after she got her bingo fix) and I won $500. Would you believe I haven't played since!

    Oh cheerfuldoer, I'd love to win the lotto too. Of course I never play. But I would love to be able to pay someone to completely renovate my old home. It is such a great house but needs a renovation so badly.

    Then I'd like to travel. Ha - fix the house up and travel. Maybe travel while the house was being fixed up.

    Pay for college for my kids.

    But have I ever won anything? I won Bingo at work last month and got some picture frames. I won the birthday pool at Curves and got a shirt. I'm sure there have been other little things but can't remember them right now.

    Ooh, the lottery! Or heck, I'd settle for winning that HGTV dream home! :chuckle

    I actually won a 2004 Jeep Liberty in a sweepstakes last year!
