Big, Fat...

DREAMS!  When I thought about what topics I wanted to write about this week, I kept coming back to my dreams for the future, and all of the wacky ideas that bounce around in my brain.  I really loved getting personal with you guys last week, and decided to push the envelope further this week.  I'm warning all of you now, I don't dream small.  My dreams are huge, and I won't hesitate to admit that I want to do it all.  There is very little about this amazing world that we live in that I don't want to embrace with my entire existence (except for drugs, murder, crime...  those I can do without).  So today I'm going to share what those dreams are.  I am going to try not to elaborate on my dreams, my plans, my reasoning today, because I would be here all week, and you would have moved on to better blogs.  But I would love to get interactive with you.  I want to dig deeper into the dreams you want to hear about.  So at the end of this post, please tell me what dream you want to hear more about, and then I'll write more about that subject later this week.  Sound good to you?  Awesome!

At ice cream on Friday night, 'cause we're wacky like that

I want to marry this guy and have babies with him.  2 babies, to be exact.  And then I want to adopt a special needs kiddo with him.

We want to buy fixer-upper houses, live in them while we're fixing them up, then buy a different house and rent out the one we've just fixed up.  Once we have 2-3 rentals, we would like to build our dream home.

Our dream home has a working title of "Prarie-dog Manor", because we want to live in a buried house!  We want to have up to 20 acres, have tons of out-buildings, and a hobby farm.  We also have plans for the manor to be sustainable and off the grid.

We want to home school our kids.

We are in love with the idea of living cooperatively with your neighbors.  I dream of being able to trade with my neighbors for anything we can't produce for ourselves.

I dream of working part-time, or of working part-time from home, part time at the office once we have kids.

I dream of teaching our kids sustainable skills, like gardening, cooking, sewing, woodworking, home maintenance, etc.  I want my kids to be able to care for themselves and their things.

We want to have a huge travel fund and take advantage of it.

We want to live 100% debt free.

If we ever retire, we don't want to have to worry about anything.  We'd probably retire in the city somewhere after living in the country for many years.  After all that work, I want to live some leisure. 

What dreams do you have for your future?


  1. I love your dreams. Honest, I'm living mine and feel like I have everything I want right now. :) I hope all of these and more come true!

    1. That is so fantastic that you can be living your dream! We know we are a long way off, but we love working toward each of these goals every day. Thank you for your kind words.


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
