Saturday Six

Thanks to Patrick for great questions, as always :)

1. Were you in the same location five years ago that you are today? Would you have expected to be?
I'm still in Michigan. I'm not sure what I expected when I moved here, other than just giving it a year to see what happened.

2. Are you driving the same car you drove five years ago? Were you driving the same car five years before that?
Heck no! I had a Kia Sportage when I moved here - piece of crap - I don't recommend them at all. And I'm on my 3rd car since then. I am usually good for about 2 years with a car, but this one is paid off so it might last longer than that :)

3. What percentage of the clothes in your closet are clothes you were wearing five years ago?
Other than some great old sweat and t-shirts? None. And I'm wearing my MBTA police one that my dear departed friend Billy gave me one night at least 12-13 years ago.

4. In what way is your life most improved over the last five years? In what way is it least improved over the last five years?
I am living in a brand new house, and with the exception of my house I am almost debt free. My son has me home more, and since we moved to Michigan I have been a stay at home mom for a lot of that 5 years or I've worked part time. The past 8 months are the first ones that I have worked full time in almost 6 years. I think the time spent with my son is vastly improved. The time with my friends and family has not, considering I'm living in another state.

5. Take the quiz:

You Live in the Future

You're an optimistic soul who's always looking forward to better times.

You spend a lot of time planning for and dreaming about the future.

You don't have emotional baggage or preconceived notions of how your life should turn out.

You're open to any and all possibilities. Who knows what the future will bring?

While it's good to be forward looking, make sure you broaden your perspective from time to time.

Too much dreaming about the future may lead to neglecting the present.

6. Consider the thing you most hoped for five years ago: has that come true, yet?
I hoped for a better life for myself and my son. I think in some ways we have that, in some ways we do not. We have had some great experiences and adventures that wouldn't have been possible had we not moved here, but also some not so great things - I guess we have to hope they balance out in the end.

I understand about being so far away from family. Living in the thumb puts me about 3 hours from all of my family because they're located around the Coldwater area....I hate not seeing my brother and his family.

Three hours! PFFFFFFFFFFT!!! Although, I could go visit YOUR family... LOL
Mine is a 14 hour ride to MA - and that's a good drive day. lol

I do miss them, but I appreciate the time we have when we are together that much more. :) Like on the beach. On Cape Cod. Oh, I'm so over the damn snow. lol
