    To get my son out of the house! He is 25, and going to hair school, so at least he is working towards something but it took him seven years (as an adult) of refusing school,(who refuses a college education paid for by parents? My son!) and working menial low paying jobs before he finally came crawling home (again) admitting that he can't make it unless he learns a skill. So I suggested hair school and he is doing well.

    But he is a slob, eats me out of house and home, and argues about the dumbest things, like taking out the trash. In fact, if the trash is full, he will "balance" his trash on top of the trash, instead of just taking it out!

    Ok, rant over.


    Hmmmm....sounds like somebody I know (my baby brother). Regarding the sloppiness and not changing out the trash bag, I mean. I used to share a house with him and another brother of ours (I have three brothers), and this used to be one of my biggest pet peeves. If it's full, it's full. Change the full bag for a new one. It's not difficult, and it only takes about 30 seconds. Aaaarrrrggghhh!!!! :explode: :grumble: Another pet peeve was when I would go and clean the kitchen really good. It would be spotless. I'd come back an hour later, and it would be a disaster again. I'd be like, "What on earth...?!!" He'd say, "Yeah, sorry about that. I'll clean in up in a bit. I was hungry so I fixed myself some lunch (or dinner...)." Did he ever clean it up? Well, sort of. His idea of cleaning up was to dump all his dirty dishes and pans into the sink and sweep the crumbs off the counter onto the floor. :angry: :explode: :grumble:

    Please don't let it be "lose weight", admirable as that may be for a dream :)

    Me, my biggest dream is to have a family. I can't wait to have kids some day, to enjoy life with them, see them grow and show them how much fun the world can be!! It's my absolutely biggest dream.


    To be Totally Healthy, pain free, to have My financial needs and some desires met, to continue to age gracefully, continue to grow/learn/love as a Human Being, and to have companionship, friendship and be of service/value to others. Everything else will take care of itself. This is a HUGH Dream!

    2. obtain my black belt and teach Tae Kwon Do
    3. find a lucrative job that allows me to still be at home when my kids are home from school

    To marry the love of my life (haven't found him yet), have 3 kids and travel :)
  • To be the best mother possible to my future children. My husband is in a medical school, and by the time we try for children he will be in residency. I hope that, even though their dad will have a demanding career, we can give them all the love, nurturing, and attention that they deserve.

    Wow! Sounds JUST like my cousin!
    Idk your whole situation, but dang, I'd be tempted to kick his *kitten* to the curb.
    That'd teach what life is like if he's unwilling to work. Ultimate Reality Check haha.

    short-term- pass the CPA exam

    long-term- cheesy, but I just want to maintain my good marriage and raise our son and be happy. my husband and i have been through so much the last few years, that I've realized that nothing else really matters to me as long as I have those 2 in my life. anything else is just a bonus.

    I'm such a dork!!!!!!
