Day 18 - Plans/dreams/goals you have
I am happy with where my life is at the moment, so I don't have a lot of long term goals or plans for the future. At least nothing that interesting. They are mostly just the normal things like, paying off student loans, paying off the house, making upgrades to the house, saving for our future. Pretty standard things.
Eventually some time in the future, hopefully not to far though, we want to have at least another child. I would love to eventually be able to just sell my jewelry and crafts for a living and be able to stay home with the kids. For right now my plan for work is basically going back when my mat leave is over and working until we have another baby. After that who knows.
I would love to be able to stay home with them after the second one comes but it all depends on finances. I don't know if I want to work where I am for the rest of my life but for now it's a job and it pays better then the last few that I have had. I honestly wouldn't even know what I would want to do if I did want to find other work. I just basically want to be happy and I don't really need much to do that. I have my family and Chris's family, Chris, Monkey and my friends, that's all I really need. :) Not really the most exciting but we have already accomplished some of the goals we had set for ourselves a few years back like getting married, buying a house and starting a family.
Day 19 - Nicknames you have; why do you have them
I don't really have to many nicknames, but I do have a few.
Krissy or Kris - That has to be the most obvious ones really since my name is Kristina and they are the typical short forms of my name. I actually prefer to go by either one of those then my full name though.
Mouse - This is a nickname I got from the family. I have been called that ever since I could remember. I guess it's because I was so quiet and I liked cheese.
Brat - I used to get this a lot when I was younger by my oldest brother. I guess I was a brat? He hasn't called me that in a long time though so that is good. LOL.
Steen - I've been called Steen for a number of years when I used to hang out with a particular friend regularly. He liked to call people by the middle part of their names. (kris-steen-a)
To be honest those are really the only ones that I can think of. Not really a whole lot. I'm sure there have been some random ones along the way but nothing that really stayed around for a while. I think I elementary school someone started calling me giggles or something like that at one point because I was alway laughing, but that memory is pretty foggy lol.
