I would like to start a rare breeds farm, raising heritage farm animals that are now becoming extinct.
Travel to new places that have interested me forever like Italy, Great Britain, Ireland, pretty much anywhere in the South Pacific; Sub-Saharan Africa...
Build and live in a small, comfortable house on a large piece of property that has a well set up area for my crafts--sewing & knitting.
(This is separate from my 'travel' choice because it is VITAL) Visit and explore Australia--as much as I can possible afford to see

1. Travel, it doesn't matter where. I just like traveling especially if I can learn some history.
2. Have a summer house in the Rockies.I have a winter one in Texas so half way there.
3. Take my two older grandsons for a couple months and just play.
4. Take some lessons and learn to do something I always have wanted to do. Not going to say what it is but it's in near future plans.
5. Get to meet all my SI friends on my travels.
Get laid again
I'm afraid to put that on my list...might jinx my future prospects.
It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

1. Get back overseas in a financially sustainable way.
2. Figure out what I want my masters in and do it!
3. Buy property in the US (probably a condo).
I think I'll have to wait a few years to figure the rest out.

I'm working on nursing school now, so finish it. duh.
Dang, it's some work though.
When my kids are grown, i want to travel nurse for a few years and see the country, and eventually wind my way back before I have grand kids. I would like to have an RV for this or a tumbleweed home (google them~! They are really cool)
I have been getting involved in my church, and in a couple of years, i want to do a mission trip. We have started doing one helping with a summer program in the south bronx. Also, when I finish nursing school, I want to do this medical mission called Nurses For Africa. It is one of the main things that is pushing me along to complete my nursing school goal. I feel pushed to serve, and not to wax religious, but I feel like God is calling me to do this. (sorry, not a religious post, just what is motivating me)
I want to go to Europe. Just for fun.
Other than enjoy life, love my kids and watch them become successful human beings, remain healthy, love grand kids eventually grow old and find ways to serve God and the world, I'm good really. This is a really peaceful time for me. I feel like I'm moving in the right direction.

I want to travel, have kids, join the Peace Corp, or find some other way to make a meaningful impact, set up some roots but still be mobile. Apparently I need a tumbleweed home!

Finish my MS in Social Work and perhaps get into the political world to make some changes
and not to wax religious, but I feel like God is calling me to do this..
Yeah, this is my higher calling also.
Make enough money to spoil my grandkids.
Learn to play drums (still! I haven't had time to play with them and they are in pieces in the basement )
Travel (especially to Japan to visit my dd and her husband and part of this is learning to speak enough Japanese to converse with her in-laws.)
Surgery. I have about 3 or 4 things I would like done.
