hopes and dreams for 2013

What do you hope for your life and for your family in the next year?

My dreams feel pretty simple right now. For us, I wish for an income, for something approaching financial security rather than financial ruin. I hope to continue doing good work on my book project, because the world needs a feminist book for parents and because I love working on it. And I hope really hard, as always, that my little family will continue enjoying health, safety, and many pleasures together.

Now tell me yours.

    I definitely hope for those things for your family too, Molly!

    I’m not sure what my hopes/dreams are for 2013. I want to keep reading and writing. I want to see a way for our little family to start saving (for travel, for a home) and not fret over monthly bill-paying the way we have been since grad school. I hope for Hanna’s positions at work to be extended beyond next August, maybe with more security of continuation than has been the case in the past three years. I want us to find a way to have our evenings and weekends feel more restful than they have been, and for Hanna to feel less anxious and hyper-vigilant about everyone and everything in our lives. I hope to keep strengthening friendships and feeling more at home in the Northeast than I have so far.

    My dreams, like yours, are simple and huge. To live in the same house as my husband full time. To survive our impending move. To be able to afford a decent house. To make a wise decision about our eldest child’s schooling (public k or continue with private). To get an article published.
