Sorry I haven’t been online much! My husband took a personal day and we went to Raleigh and cashed in my lottery ticket. I’ve been rather lucky this week winning money! Which is something I normally never get that lucky with but did win in Delaware one time. Many many years ago. No million dollars though.
I totally forgot that they take taxes out and in NC they take taxes out on any winnings over $600.00. So instead of getting $5000.00 I ended up after taxes getting $3750.00. But hey! That’s better than nothing.
I bought two more tickets and won $30.00 and then a drawing for a chance to win $1,000.000.00 dollars! Going to mail the ticket in and see what happens. Each month for 5 months they will have a drawing and two winners will get picked. They will win $1500.00. And after the fifth month there will be another drawing with only 10 people for a chance to win the $50,000.00 a year for 20 years. Who knows! Maybe! Maybe not! ๐Ÿ˜€
So I won $3780.00 now! Today I told my husband to cash my ticket in and spend $10.00 for another ticket and my golly I got another $40.00 ticket! So now I am up to $3810.00! ๐Ÿ˜€
Already got the $3750.00 put in the bank! Going to deposit my other winnings on Monday but will take that one $10.00 and might buy another ticket at another place for I still feel lucky. If I lose the ticket then I won’t spend anymore!
I play for profit, not loosing. I start seeing a loosing ticket that is when I know my luck ran out! LOL! I’m the type where I very seldom play and living in Delaware and PA I saw people spending their entire paychecks on a lottery. Not me! That is a no no!
I will keep playing as long as I see a lucky streak. But when that streak gives me a loosing ticket, then it’s time to stop for a while.
Felt bad on Friday and had to see my new doctor in Greenville. He seems to be nice and I think he may be a good doctor! They are going to start my treatments next week. last night I was beat! Too much excitement for my body and this morning something really scary happened. But posting that in another post! Hugs
