In 10 years...

Day 2: Where would you'd like to be in 10 years.

After staring at this prompt for a good 5 minutes, going and doing some laundry, working on a few costumes and staring at it again for another 5 minutes; I think I am ready to answer.  For someone who likes routine and schedule, thinking that far in advance was hard for me.

In 10 years I hope to be traveling.  My daughter will have just finished college and hopefully starting a graduate program, so I would love to see where ever she is going to go to graduate school (maybe abroad??).  We will have both survived the "teenage years" (we are taking those one day at a time).  The gut wrenching hollowness of the empty nest syndrome will have passed and I will have 10 more animals living with me (I kid...maybe).  My house will finally be clean, but maybe not if I have 10 animals...hmmm.  I will hope to be established in the career I am contemplating (still thinking about it).

I plan on still being married and hopefully have him completely trained on where the dirty laundry goes (I will never give up hope).

I still will be taking pictures and I hope to have sold a few prints along the way.

Maybe I will own a zoo!  Random...

Wow!  I sound really boring and all over the place.  I really need to start reading ahead on the prompts so I can think of better things.  I have done so much in the past 10 years that I can't wait to see what I do in the next 10.

This is part of the June Blog Challenge found over at Paula's Place.

    1. Thank you. Our baby pictures are almost identical. She is so much prettier than I was at her age. I love that she has almost clear blue (sometimes a green tint) eyes. I told my husband that I put that on my 10 year plan and he laughed and said "good luck"!

  2. hehehe I think 10 animals would be considered a small zoo. ;) Hopefully your daughter will keep in touch so your nest doesn't feel so empty.

  5. Wow, did you spit out that child or what?! She looks just like you {Sorry hubs}. You and my oldest child would be the best of friends. She adores animals and would definitely have a zoo if she could. Since she was 4 we've watched her cry at all the humane society commercials. I think you should definitely GO FOR IT with both the career and the pictures! I have a feeling you can do whatever you set your mind to. :-)

    1. Haha! The night she was born, my mom said "That baby is all Cristy". I also cry at the Humane Society commercials. Also, all of the lost and found pets from the tornado, yeah big weepy mess. You are so very wonderful, I am so glad to have you in my corner. :)

    1. i am so glad our hair looks silky and smooth. We both have fine hair and it usually looks stringy. She does have my husbands eyes. His are green, whereas hers are blue (mine are brown). Zoo's are sooo fun! I like visiting the zoo where ever I go. I love them.
