A Couple of Questions X

1. When you were little, what career aspirations did you have?

2. What is one childhood dream that is yet to be attained, that you still desire to do?

Have a great week everyone!

I think that I will answer these questions first as I know that Steph and I's responses might be similar - I'll get a head start on her.
First of all - great "beach pics" Steph - it looks as though you had alot of fun.
1. A childhood career: For most of my life I have wanted to be a teacher (no surprise there since I teach my kids and various classes each week). However, I believe when I was in third grade, I remember proudly telling my mom and my third grade teach during conferences that I really wanted to be a cake decorator. They responded with some veiled sarcasm (not rude, just amused) but it wasn't until years later that I recognized that their polite laughter and comment that "I'll have to work real hard to acheive that goal" wasn't entirely genuine... No hard feelings - I think I've decorated one cake in my life time and it's one cake too many... :)
2. I really, really, really want to swim with dolphins someday.... And I will - even if I'm 90 and someone has to help me in the pool... Traig tickled me the other day when he saw a commercial advertising such an adventure and asked if I'd ever want to do that. I think he was shocked by my enthusiasm - but we both decided we're going to fulfill that dream together someday... :)

1. When I was little I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I was so interested in this that I begged my dad to buy me a bunch of vet books at a garage sale. He did and I spent the next few years with these smelly, musty books in my bedroom. I also wanted to become a massage therapist. I still would like to take classes and become one someday.

I was a little older when I realized what I really wanted to be when I 'grew up'. If I weren't so tied to our hometown (oh yeah, and married to someone tied to our hometown), and we didn't have such wonderful friends, I would go back to school in a heartbeat and become either a homicide detective or a forensic scientist. That is my all time dream! I could go back to school but then I would have to go where the work was, and I don't think that is here. :o(

2.Become either a homicide detective or a forensic scientist....

Actually, I have always wanted to go to Egypt and see the pyramids. I had to do a report on King Tut when I was in grade school and ever since then I have wanted to go to Egypt. I am not sure it will ever happen because Travis has no desire what-so-ever to go there, but that is something I would like to do before I leave this earth.

Steph- I am glad you guys had so much fun at the coast. It looks like it was absolutely beautiful. Have a great week and I will see you on Thursday!

Thanks for stealing my thunder, Michele.

1. Career aspirations: teacher (obviously) and waitress. I remember being quite impressed with the lady serving us at Sambos and thinking how cool that would be someday. Career dreams realized!

2. Yeah, swimming with the dolphins would be my pick too. Recently, I looked up the website to Discovery Cove in Orlando and found out that as young as age 6 you can swim with the dolphins in their pool. So, that's the big goal when Mikayla gets to that age - we'll keep you posted!

You girls are funny - swimming w/ dolphins - that's great! And it's attainable:-).
1) I really wanted to be a model and a mechanic. Yes, this was pretty early on childhood but someone said I had high cheek bones and models have high cheek bones so that sealed the deal for me. And I loved fixing things. I pretended to be the "man in the house". My sister said I should be a modeling mechanic.
2)I have so many dreams. I'm not sure about childhood dreams but a current dream is to start a home for pregnant teens and teenage mothers. But that is NOT a childhood dream. I can't think of a chlidhood one.

1. Career Aspirations: to be a teacher. I also remember saying to someone "I am going to make $50,000 a year, at 40 hours per week and minimum wage" I guess I wasn't very good in math!
2. I still would like to have a degree in teaching, (maybe that is why I tried my hand at homeschooling), but at childhood time it was Elementary Ed, now it is Home Ec.
oh and I always wanted to star in Dallas.....

I've lost your website now that I have my computer back - what is it?

1. Teacher. (Was this every young girl's dream?) I remember as I got older, middle school or so, I wanted to be a business woman in New York City. I had the NYC Skyline poster in my room and wanted to be single forever and have a big career. Hmmm. Odd.
2. I can't think of a childhood dream. The only dreams I have yet to fulfill are owning a beach house and publishing. I don't think those were from childhood, though.
