Where do you see yourself in ONE year?

What about FIVE years?

Do you think you will stick to those plans, or are they more of a "guideline"?

Where do you see yourself in ONE year? I guess living in the house we're moving to next week. No idea about work - I'm a temp right now and this is a 6 month assignment. I'm 3.5 months in. I would love to be able to go atleast one hour without constantly checking my bank account, figuring out what bills I can pay/push off, and figuring out who needs what the most without depriving the rest of the family.

What about FIVE years? Same as above.

Do you think you will stick to those plans, or are they more of a "guideline"? I hope so - I don't really have much of a choice.

Where do you see yourself in ONE year? HOPEFULLY in a bigger house with a proper yard. In my pre-prego body. AND have a full-blown garden to cut down on grocery costs!!

What about FIVE years? We hope to buy a house and move country that is our ultimate life goal. Well, one of them.

Do you think you will stick to those plans, or are they more of a "guideline"? I better stick to them!!

Where do you see yourself in ONE year? on a boat.

What about FIVE years? on a bigger boat

Do you think you will stick to those plans, or are they more of a "guideline"? Definitely sticking. HAHA. We have the house, the vehicles, the playset, the pool, the gadgets... Now we just want a boat


...now if you're asking for very long term goals (more than 5yrs+) then we have quite a few! We want to buy a couple more fixer-upper houses and remodel (we love working together building things! ) Once those are done and set up with tenants then we would like to buy a large bus. We are going to remodel it (imagine a rockstar tour bus. HAHA) while the boys are finishing school and then buy a few spots of land to travel too. One of our first purchases is going to be oceanside with a dock. We don't need a large property. All we need is enough blank land with space for a bus, a patio/gazebo we will build, and a dock for our kayak or jetskis That's the life plan. Property and travelling Ultimately we want docks & gazebos waiting for us all over the country

In one year doing the same thing as now, really.

In 5 years, I just want to have a full-time job but the kind with 8-2 type hours so I can be home when the kids return from school. I still want to make their after-school snacks and help with homework and cook dinner and "be there" for them; basically only work during school hours.

We do plan to buy (we're renting now), but I don't really want a house at all. I prefer a high-rise apartment that is ours and all remodelled and modernized. But we will see. We're just taking it one day at a time.
