I am turning 50 soon, on January 8th, so I have been thinking about things like this recently.

Nope. Not even close. I was going to be a single sign language interpreter living on the beach with my dog.... I'm not single. I know sign language because I lost a lot of my hearing, no beach, & 2 cats.

Nope why because I always thought I would marry a rancher/cowboy and live on a big ranch instead I married a computer dork live in the 'burbs and never get time to ride.

 Yes and no. I wanted to be like my aunt, stay single never marry never have kids. So far I've only accomplished one of those. Never marry. I don't regret having kids they made me a better person.

That is similar to one of my dreams as well!  I wanted to live on a farm or ranch and have lots of horses.

Why not get a doggie?  I have 3 dogs and 1 cat.

Why didn't you want to get married and have children?

Well am not a prima ballerina with the Bolshoi, but other than that all has turned out fairly well so far.

Oh eventually... I love dogs. My SO wants to finish grad school first before we consider it. He feels like we'll be moving too much for a dog & I love Dobermans. :)
