  • Honestly, I am at a point now where I am learning not to think too much about what will be going on 5, 10, 15 years from now.. I am working on just living in the moment, in the day I am in. We aren't promised tomorrow so I don't spend too much time making plans for 5 years from now. I hope I will be happy and healthy and my friends and family will be as well.

  • Hmmmm. Well, we I did this in high school my senior year, I was COMPLETELY wrong about what life would look like in 5 and 10 years. LOL! In five years I will have been married for almost 13 years. I would guess we would have one or two more children to make a total of 5 or 6 kids (though at the same rate we have already gone, we would have 4 more kids!).

    Hopefully we would have bought a house and I would have several kids in school.

  • Same as it is now but we will have 2 bills payed off by then. Unless we win the Lottery. Then we will move to a different state.

  • I hope to have a similar job, living in AZ and my parents will have passed, so I don't have the stress of caring for them anymore. I"m not morbid, they are 78 and 82, have multiple health problems and are just the biggest stressors in my life.

  • I hope that I am able to pay down my debt and spend quality time with my family. Get my priorities straight and enjoy life as it comes. The stress sometimes is unbearable. I am trying to learn to put the things aside I don't have control over and deal with the things that are important to me and my family. I will hopefully work to live and not live to work. I can be all consuming because of the demands of others. I am going to put a lot of energy into my relationship with my husband and make sure we create good memories for our kids. We try and go on a small vacation every year, some place new, and really pay attention to them. Life is short, I want to enjoy it.

  • I don't look that far ahead.  I have to focus on just getting through this day (or this hour as it may be).

    In 5 years I'll be 38 and my kids will be 15, 13, 12, 9 and about to turn 5 (he/she is due in 10 days).  I'm sure I'll be doing about the same as I am now.
