10 in 10

My very own meme In 10 years:
  1. I have gotten married and bred three children
  2. I have had probably four significant bouts of depression (and innumerable little ones)
  3. Taken anti-depressants for the first time
  4. Found a job that I really love
  5. Learnt to be a lot kinder to myself
  6. Witnessed a Government make our country debt-free at the expense of it's very cultural identity. At the expense of widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots. At the expense of creating welfare for the wealthy while forcing the most needy in the community to work for a pittance. Overhauled an industrial relations system that needed to be overhauled, but instead of being brave about it has systematically created a mean system that will enshrine a working poor sub-class of our society. Turned Australians from a mindset of "no-one gets left behind" to "what about me? It's all about me". (that's cheating I know but I had to get that out. Sorry.)
  7. I will have an 18 year old, 16 year old, 10 year old and maybe one more?
  8. I will hopefully be in a senior management/policy/strategic role (for a government agency?) making a difference. Or working with Chef.
  9. I will have published two books - a cookbook and a novel.
  10. We will be living in a place of our own.

Oh shit, that means I'll have an 18 year old and two 13 year olds... I am SO moving out when the first one hits puberty.

Isn't it weird. I mean, can you imagine your household with essentially five adult sized bodies living in it? I can't for us - I mean, where the fuck am I going to keep three adult sized boys? Forget a house, we need a commune.

It just dawned on my just how appropriate that expression is on my animation's face - that mix of don't fuck with me, I'm over it, I'm pissed off, whatever. And that you're whispering to me, as I said, "the man is an idiot". I like it, I like it a lot.

I know, I think we just keep on commenting to each other and the whole page will look like one long scene from late night Cartoon Network.

What's worse is imagining how old your kids COULD have been if you started say at 18 - I could have a 21 year old. Arrghhh.
You girls crack me up. Avagoodweekend.

In 10 years my oldest will be 29. We will also have a 21 yr old, 18 year old and a 10 year old. I could be a grandmother by then. I will be 49. Do I win? Your conversation here made me laugh.
