MckLinky Monday -The Future

For today's MckLinky Monday the RHOK's ask -Look to the future...What do you do now that the kids are grown and it's just you and your spouse?

It is hard to think about such a time since most of my adult life I've been a mom with kids running around the house. If we have extra money to spend it would be nice to do some traveling (of course we'll see how that goes -I've never been the best traveler). But,really it would be great to explore the world with my husband and see places on "my bucket list".
When we're not traveling and at home it would be nice as others have said to have a nice clean house that actually stays clean for longer than 5minutes! ;)
I have also thought about and am torn if we should stay in this same house -or possibly relocate? On 1 hand I like the idea of staying in the same house where the kids grew up and everything. But,then on the other hand-Maybe when I'm not so worried about school districts and such we should get another place?
Still not sure about all that as you can see- And who really knows what the future holds...
I do know that even though I would like to travel some-etc. I would ultimately love a place where the kids would come visit and hopefully grandkids- and just continue to have a life full of family and love!

the thought of downsizing the house never crossed my mind. I love it. And I love to complain about it. Roy and I have it just as we want it and here's where we will stay.

I think we will definitely downsize eventually. Hubby likes living in a house (vs condo or apartment) but doesn't enjoy doing the yardwork and maintenance (nor do I) but won't let me hire it out. Just seems to me that it will make better sense, down the road, to live in a smaller, more organized home, where all of that stuff is covered!

I will definitely downsize when the kids are gone. I like the idea of living some place small without a yard to take care of that would allow us the freedom to do more.

Thanks for playing!

I don't know about downsizing- my parents now have 10 grandkids and they all like to come to Nana's. I wanna be a Nana w/ lots of room!!!

I will certainly love having a clean house.

Thanks for playing along again this week!

I love having a clean house. It has been so long since I've had space to myself that I can't imagine it.

We moved as the youngest was moving out. Sometimes I think it was a bit cold but it is what it is and it was time for us. We didn't have to worry about school districts anymore!!!
