did anyone ever watch Gilmore Girls? That is the town I want to live in - almost - a little bigger, but still with that small town feel. And I love the New England area, so hopefully it will be somewhere up there. I want an old house that we have to restore - and I want to do as much of the works as possible myself (but there are things that I know better than to try). I LOVE old homes. I grew up in a house that was built as a hospital during the civil war that my parents completely restored, so I guess you can't ever get too far away from your childhood. But, I love them and can't wait to have the chance to do that. While restoring my house, I want to open a coffee shop/bar/gallery type space. Local artists can use it as a gallery and there will be open mic nights for poetry readings, live music, etc. It will have super comfy with couches and coffee tables for people to play games, and a great outside space for nice days. I'm in charge of the decorating and I'm usually a people person so will be working the front, my brother has already started taking classes on coffee making so he'll be in charge of new ideas for coffees and getting those going, my husband will do the books, and one of my best friends is a fabulous chef so he'll have the kitchen. My husband is in the Navy right now - probably for another 6 years. But, when he is out, the gov. has fabulous grants for people who stayed in the military for at least 20 years (another 6 will put my husband at 26 years) so I'm hoping we can land one of those to help start things.
It's simple I guess, but I can't imagine a better life.
I still sing in front of the mirror and pretend I'm a rock star. But I know it's something I'd ever actually do, so doesn't really count. The Travel Channel idea.........omg!! That one lady - the blond whose name I can't remember - her show???? My husband and I watch all the time and speculate on how exactly she got that gig - cause WOW!! Yeah, that would ROCK! But, I have two kids, so as awesome as it would be - it's not really something I could actually DO...
I played the cello for 18 years (I keep saying I'm going to start again - at some point I will) and wanted to do that until I went to music school. I made a bad choice of schools for the wrong reasons and lost my zeal
But, my whole family really loves it when I play so I have every intention of starting that with more enthusiasm soon. I'd love to play in a community orchestra or chamber group for fun.
I worked in advertising as an interactive designer before I had my daughter and had to stop working. I really really loved that job. But, it was a job to me - not what I wanted to do forever...
........and DT - the dominatrix - I laughed so hard at that - AWESOME!!!!!
