I want to be a world traveler and I want to be carefree and happily living in a sunny area near an ocean enjoying umbrella drinks with my wife

And hoping beyond all hope that my grown kids are managing on their own

Retired and rich!! Well I may get to one (retired), but I won't hold my breath for the other!

Seriously I hope my dh and I can be healthy and spend some time traveling (I like the RV idea, but still have a home). I would also hope that we have great relationships and spend alot of time with the kids (and hopefully grandkids), and are able to have fun with them and not be a burden to them!

My husband is a truck driver, so he will probably be one of those that buys a semi-truck to tow the RV with - He would be on cloud nine!!

I want to be a world traveler as well . I've always dreamed of being financially stable enough once the kids are off on their own, to be able to take off for a week or two a few times a year and really see what the world has to offer. Plus, DH and I should be young enough to really be able to enjoy ourselves once the littlest one has spread his wings.

I want to live by the beach sunny beautiful warm weather 365 days 7 days a week

I want my daughter to be happy first and be very successful before I go about my business and enjoy my sun and summer weather and of course she can always come visit me whenever she like and enjoy it with me

Sane! Seriously, I hope I am sane enough and have my mental faculties to enjoy life after they are all out of the nest and on their own. My kids are great kids, but we have some very insane moments around here and there are days when I feel I've lost my mind and my memory.

Now where did I put those car keys? Oh yeah honey so and so called last week and wanted to ask you about such and such, sorry I just now remembered he called. Was it you who was telling me about yadda yadda yadda? These are becoming just some of the common phrases said by me lately as a half dozen or so kids are running around giggling, and playing and creating messes. Weekends and school breaks are usually crazy around our house with extra kids or taking kids to other people's homes.

Trying to juggle schedules, appointments, playdates, shopping, homework, house cleaning and everything else can drive a person batty. But I love every moment I have with my kids so it's not so bad, it just causes my brain to malfunction sometimes.
