I am loving where I am in life right now. I am enjoying being married with enough disposable income for home projects and vacations, a job that gives me a sense of purpose, and really good friends.

In 5 years, I'll be 32. Maybe we will have moved into a nicer home, maybe not. I wouldn't mind having left the classroom for a corporate, education focused job. I would LOVE to have moved to somewhere warmer.

I am so thrilled that I have seemingly moved beyond they scared, nervous, spinning in circles phase of my early 20's when I didn't know what I wanted and wasn't happy with what I had. At 27, I am quite content.

In 5 years I'll be 34 (OMG IMMA BE SO OLLLDDDDD). I hope to still be with my current job, not still be living with my mom, and at least have a boyfriend? lol. I would also like to have all my current dogs still be with me, and perhaps fostered a few dozen animals.

Cool thread!

I love how young most people here are! Around my parts, I'm so incredibly weird for being 24 and already having 2 dogs (soon to be 3)...people think I am insane. It's nice to know there are others out there!!!

In 5 years...

Tough. I am really, really happy with where I am in life right now, but it's possible I might be bored with it in 5 years. I hope not. Really, I'd like to still be living where I am living, with the same guy I'm with now, no kids please, a few more pets, and, OH, more money please!! I'd like to have figured out where I want to go as a trainer and actually be making money that way. Less boarding, more training.

But I'm pretty happy with life on the whole!

On the ragged edge of the world
I'll roam
And the home of the wolf
Shall be my home

In 5 years I will be about 32.... Yikes! I'm almost 27 right now.

I would like to have a kid or two by then. Don't really want more than two kids.

Hoping to by a house within 5 years.

Would like to be further set in a career of my own, self employed and able to choose my hours so I can manage being a stay at home mom and still make income.

Hoping josh is making enough money at that point that we can afford for me to manage being a stay at home mom (though like I said, I'd hope to still be making some money on the side doing my own thing).

I'd like to be debt free (aside from house mortgage).

I mainly just want to be happy and starting a family honestly.

Cricket- Mexican Street dog (we think Xolo mix)
Bamm- BC mix

I'd like to be done with my bachelor's in dietetics and working as an RD while I finish up my master's. I would like to be in the best shape of my life and still working out 5 days a week. Possibly have learned French, be able to drive a motorcycle, and either taking an acting class or occasionally acting in local theater. Also, I would like to be very involved in Chloe's dance and gymnastics ventures as well as toting her around to horse shows (I make goals for me and my kid! lol she is in dance and gymnastics now and I plan to have her in riding lessons in a couple of years)

Edit* Hoping to own a house by this Christmas so by 5 years from now I would love to have every room exactly how I want it decor-wise. If you knew me you would understand why this might take more than 5 years. We have lived here 3 and I got so fed up that I never even bothered to decorate like 4 of the rooms. If we build we definitely won't be in a house by the end of the year and it will definitely take me 5 yrs to get everything done! lol

5 years...I'll be 30.

I'd like to be thriving at my current workplace, just about celebrating our 5 yr wedding anniversary, lots of sport titles/experiences with the Crossbone, either adding on to our home or buying a house, getting in a better financial position (paying off credit cards & loans) and go on many more travels.

I am soooo happy with where I am in life & the beings in it. I'd be thrilled if things didn't change for the next 5 (except for the more dog sports & better finances)

Kids doing well and happy, done with my degree, have a successful business and buy a house. Bonus if it's a house with land.

In 5 years...

I will have decided if I want to get my master's or not

Be living on my own (tiny) hobby farm...(most likely renting a place at this point).

Writing an email inquiring about future ANCD litters or bringing one home. LOL.

And possibly be married... I'm in a long term now, we've discussed the possibility....

^That! Though I'm 28.

I really do like where I am now, but in five years I'm hoping/planning to be:
- still totally in love with my wonderful husband
- considering moving to a bigger house further out, maybe even building!
- a happy, relaxed mom of one kid
- a fitter, better eating version of my current self
- still successfully running my own dog training business and competing in a variety of dogs sports

Z will be 11, Kes will be 9, Aeri will be 7, and Snipe will be 6.5, so they should still all be with us. <3
