Mine would be

1 - See my children safely grown up, maybe see my grandchildren too!
2 - Travel to lots of countries and experience different cultures.
3 - Get rid of mortgage and all debts, so I can live while I am alive and leave something for the children.
4 - Get my stories published. ( I have some I have been wanting to get published for a while)
5 - Concentrate more on my music and get at least one of my songs published too. BE CREATIVE.

1) Live on a sailboat.
2) Publish several novels.
3) Live long enough to tell my grandchildren funny stories about my children.
4) Travel, travel and travel some more. I don't care if we live in an apartment at home as long as we always have the money to travel. Hell, I've heard of people who rent cabins on cruise ships. I'd do that.
5) See a tornado. From a safe distance, of course.
