Ok, I'm tired of hunting for a job and I'm feeling a little let down since I just found out that a job that I was soooo wanting, and was exceptionally qualified for was not even submitted correctly due to the bugs on the site I went through to submit it. Now it's too late to do anything about it. I just wish DH and I would just go ahead and win the lottery so we can buy that gorgeous little piece of property in the foothills and live in peace! I don't want a huge house or a limo, but I would love to be able to travel a bit and have as many chickens as I want (five hundred or so) as well as a calf and a few other critters. My dream is to retire in a small but comfy house on a huge lot, plant extremely vast gardens that work well in the area we live and create a venue for weddings etc. that is to die for. In a separate area, I would be able to keep as many animals as I want and grow my own food (with help since my back isn't great these days) and build a few cabins on the property for other garden fanatics that want to vacation in a serene, tranquil garden setting with hiking trails and weekend breakfasts to die for. The property would be environmentally friendly using some extremely facinating technologies to save water and generate power. I've spent many years managing other companies and making a profit for other folks (as well as a couple of small, somewhat profitable businesses of my own that functioned on a shoestring budget). It's time I put my talents to work for something I truly enjoy! I can draw up my own house/cabin plans, design my own gardens, manage the events, and I'm a delight in the kitchen but the jobs available these days are dreary compared to this dream. I have had some exciting and fullfilling jobs in my lifetime and I am not crazy about the idea of settling at this stage of my life. I think it's healthy to dream and plan whatever you can imagine! If you are afraid to dream big, you will be afraid to live big. What would you do if you won enough money to live where you wanted and could start the business you've always dreamed of? Please just remember that this is a family site so save your wishes that aren't family friendly for another forum and PLEASE don't be negative about any dreams other folks may post on this thread. This is for entertainment only. Thank you!
