If you could design your perfect lifestyle, what would it look like?

Firstly I would start out with about 30 hours to each day. There would be no changes in the time so that it would never get dark earlier at any time in the year. I would work part time and write
(professionally ~ for moolah) part time and would spend the rest of my leisure time with my family. I would not have to worry about gaining five pounds every time I get an urge for a chocolate chip cookie. My weight would never change, as long as I keep a balanced diet of relatively healthy foods, and I would go back to the days when you would go see your doctor only when you're ill and he could handle anything that happens...rather than shipping you off to
a series of pre-accepted specialists at exhorbitant costs. Oh yes, and in this perfect life, I would be an avid smoker of the newly invented cigarette that contains no harmful chemicals and might
even come in fruity flavors. :)

What would it LOOK like? I guess it would look like us living in a gorgeous cabin in Colorado. Some of the features would be just what we have now, though. : )

If wishes were horses then beggars would ride. If turnips were watches, I'd wear one at my side.

Less work, more play.

I kinda like the one I have now. Perhaps a little more income ($5000 per year oughta do it), but the way things are now is just fine.

My perfect lifestyle would be very balanced, including time to work and time to play, time alone and time with loved ones and friends. I'd mix in some travel, lots of books, and a judicious amount of good food and good music.

I would be a writer who lives on a smallish farm with a lot of land - plenty of animals and a guest house for my family. My husband and I would live comfortably without fear of financial problems and we would be able to do the things we enjoy.

I pretty much like the life I have now. Could use a bit more challenge in the work life and a bit more romance in the personal life, but other than that, I count myself as fortunate.

my perfect lifestyle

my day would start by waking up smiling in my special made 10 x 10 foot bed alongside my true other half. a powerful, dominant man that i have dreamt about and specifically prayed for in extreme realistic detail. i would look around my spacious grey toned bedroom with floor to ceiling windows on two sides with an amazing view of trees, hill, and mountains.

i would take a walk through my personally designed and built house into all of the different themed rooms. then i would wake my beautiful happy children. two sets of twins. four years apart, boys first, girls last. as they went through their morning routines i would go to my top floor kitchen with the glass ceiling and begin breakfast. i would watch my family devour my cooking which would be identical to my mothers.

everyone would depart from the house after this. i would take the children to their separate schools where they compete for top honors with their twins, while my successful husband went to his satisfying job. when i reach the boys school last i get out of the car along with them because i teach there. i would make my way to my classroom to get started.

my classes would be filled with teenagers who are the most unique and lively people. i would start each class with discussion on any topic they choose even though i teach math. i would personally know and care about al of my students even the difficult ones. i would know their different learning styles and be able to accomodate them individually. i would be able to deal with their problems and get them to learn at the same time. i would be able to help them with work from other classes.

i would tutor students at lunch. call my husband for sweet talk and to make sure his day is going fine. i would finish off the day with afterschool tutoring while my children meet me there to do their homework as well. the girls would be dropped off my bestfriend whose children go to the same school as the girls. the boys would be involved in sports so they would come an hour or so later.

we would make our way home where i would send them off to the showers and rooms for studying and finishing up homework or freetime with friends or alone. later i would spend some time with each of them talking about any and everything. i would start dinner. my husband would come home with me greeting him at the door. we would have dinner together as a family. a loving and extremely close family that is strong enough to deal with and overcome lifes low points and help others through them as well. loud, laughing, joking, and playful because everyone is a complete nut. my husband being the one to calm things down after too long.

the kids would go do their own things while me and my husband have our quality time. i would receive a routine call from my mother and collect tabs on my dad and siblings. everyone is doing very well for themselves.

soon the children are in their rooms on their way to bed as my husband and i are also. i feel satisfied, undeserving, blessed, and tired. lying in bed we have a discussion about where to spend the holidays. no decision is made but it looks like everyone will be coming to our house since we have plenty of room.

even though i am tired and ready to sleep i have saved my last bit of strength to make sweet, passionate, kinky, rough, dirty, sex/love to my husband. both of us finally passing out from pleasure and exhaustion to move on to a new day of happiness. i guess thats pretty much what i expect out of my life at best. not perfect but happy and mine.

That's a bizarre questions, but I'd hope that it would be absolutely beautiful.
