10 years from now...

First off - this is all Desert Rose's fault!  If I hadn't read her post I wouldn't have realized a few things.

It started off innocently, she was talking about where she would be in 10 years.  I was reminded of the same projects from high school and middle school.  I thought they were neat then.  Especially since I've gotten half of my predictions right.

When I was 10, I was told to predict myself at 30.
have gone to college, be a model, be married, have children, own a large house, have a dog

Well, we do own a house, but it is not a large one.  Not when there are 5 of us and 2 dogs, not just one.  I'm still working on the model part though.

When I was in high school, I was also told to predict myself at 30.
have graduated college, married, with children, own a house, work with my father in the trucking business

Technically, I never graduated.  I have 7 credits left.  At the time, there were not enough teachers for my major and it was going to take me 2 years to get 7 credits.  I was paying my own way and didn't think a part time job was going to suffice. blah blah blah excuses.  Anyway, I accomplished the rest of my dreams.

On to the future.

10 years from now I hope to be in a bigger house.  If not, the twins will be hanging off their bunk beds and T2 will hit his head everytime he tries to climb in.  Why? Because they will be teenagers (shrieks)!!!!!!!
And little man will be a tween.
And I will be 40!

10 years from now I may be in a mental institution.  Where will you be?

Adolescence is a period of rapid changes. Between the ages of 12 and 17, for example, a parent ages as much as 20 years. ~Author Unknown


  1. 10 years from now I will still have 2 kids at home...and hopefully some granbabies! Yikes!

  2. I too will have two teenagers and a tween living with me in ten years. I hope to be making more money by then or else we'll have to start a child labor camp.

  3. Excuse me, I have to go lie down now, I see Linda above mentioned that she will hopefully have some granbabies, and I am realizing that it could be a possibility for me in 10 years or less. I suddenly don't feel very well...:)

  4. In 10 years I'll be a mom of a teen and a tween...both boys. Heaven help me!

    I hope I'll be better adjusted to the fact that I will never be the type to have a perfectly clean/orderly home. ;o)

  5. I will have a ten year old and hopefully at least two more, a hubby and a house!

  6. hmmm. 10 yrs from now. i can't even begin to imagine

  7. Ten years from now, I'll be old... I don't want to talk about it...
