Dream Big

So, what is my dream job, Elise asks? Ha! Ummm. Let's see. Always wanted to model or be a dancer (but not on poles). What's that job where you spend someone else's money and do nothing all the time? Oh, yeah. Socialite. That could be fun.

Not really. Just joking. I actually hate spending other people's money. Which is why I wouldn't really be happy to be a non-working housewife. Don't misread. I would love to stay home and keep house and play in the garden and cook supper. But I would have to be pulling an income somewhere.

I know it sounds cliche, but I have a few book ideas floating around in my head (and outlines floating around in notebooks). I would love to actually have the time and energy to put into my Etsy shop to really make it what I wish it was. It's pretty ridiculous right now. I'm quite ashamed, really. But, seriously, I work a full time job and I have a house to clean. Like I said, I'm just not motivated enough to come in and work another six hours after my job. Screw that.

So..... dream job comes down to this. Two Etsy shops (one for art and one for fashion) and a few good book deals. And whatever other fabulous opportunities that would stem from that. And maybe a small catering business with my mom and aunt.

Gees. that was a long answer to a simple question. sorry.

Damn good answer missy. Make the husband clean the house, you should get writing?

I agree with Amber, get writing! But I hear you, it's so hard to be bothered to do anything after a full day of work.

(And I love that you made a point of saying that dancing would not involve poles! I don't think it even occured to me that it would!)
