D is for Daydreaming

April 9, 2011 Uncategorized 6

I am a realist, I live in the real world, with my modest home, our imperfectly cleaned interior, our average landscaping, our flawed lives….honestly my life is damn good, but it’s real, not a fairy tale, not perfect, but at times I catch myself thinking………….what if………………………..yes daydreaming.

 This could have been me at 6, I remember laying my head on my desk in school and just thinking……of books, boys, playing, having fun.
Sure some of those daydreams came true, and I feel now some of my daydreams now may be my reality soon.
I still daydream of having more time to relax, and read those books, and having fun.  I now daydream of having less financial concerns and more disposable income.  I let my mind drift to thoughts of returning to work and helping build that nest egg of retirement a bit more.  I think of our home with no kids, no one asking me for money or a ride all the time.  I dream of having adult productive children, who we will look forward to welcoming home for visits, and bringing me chubby cherub grand babies to spoil.
I daydream of vacations Kevin and I will take together, trips to see Fall leaves each Autumn is one goal.

So bringing me back to reality, I’m going to get off this computer, pick up the house and enjoy the sunshine with Adrienne, while we are off to see a college softball game.

What’s in your daydreams?

    It’s so important to have dreams for the future, especially since your future is changing so quickly with the girls getting ready for college. It’s always fun to plan for the next chapter in our lives.

    I daydream all the time of being able to get my own apartment one day. Preferably after I finish undergrad and get started with grad school. I’m so over having strangers for roommates, but the girl I’m rooming with for my senior year is really nice, and we have a lot in common, so hopefully we will turn out to be good friends. We’re also stepping away from campus/college-style apartments and getting something regular, which will be a welcome change.

    More than anything, I’d like to have my own home – even if it’s a small one at first (as long as I have enough room for a little garden!) – and to be financially independent of my parents. My mom can afford to help me out with rent, but I know she will be glad whenever I’m able to afford a place on my own.

    I am going to be shameless and admit that I love the image of an impoerfectly clean house. Nothing against the organized, but for me, cleaning is what happens when I’m out of ideas for my writing…

    Daydreams are great. Especially when you are enjoying the moment too.

    It’s great to always have something to looks forward to and not getting caught up in survival mode. That is something I’m working on.

    to be honest…I don’t look too far into the future…I try to live in the moment and do something for myself every day… I am not always successful…but like I have said many times I don’t want to wait until I am 60 or 65 or 70 to do what I love…

    Would you mind, terribly, coming and cleaning up over here too? I have muffins on the counter, sauce simmering on the stove, and a couple counters FULL of stuff that needs to find a home…
