Sandra Mingle works long, late hours as a home nurse. Early one morning, while Sandra was at work, she checked the Hoosier Lottery App to see if her Powerball® ticket was a winner. To her surprise, she had won $2,000,000!
With only one hour left of her shift, Sandra could not wait to get home and celebrate with her sister and nephew. Since it was 5 a.m., she texted her sister to ask if she was awake and to call her and that she had good news. Sandra’s nephew saw the message and said to his mom, “What kind of news is good news at 5 a.m.? I bet she won the lottery!”
Though she had worked an overnight shift, Sandra was too excited to go to sleep when she arrived home. After a quick afternoon nap, Sandra, her sister, and nephew went out to dinner to celebrate her big win.
Sandra plans to purchase land near her sister and buy a tiny house to share with her French Bulldog. “It will be easy to clean,” joked Sandra about living in a tiny house. She plans to save the remainder of her prize money for the future.
