I honestly think I’d start volunteering a lot more.  I get really bored with having nothing to do, so not doing something constructive would drive me up a wall!

I would go to school to become a pastry chef and then open my own cake shop. I would definitely do more volunteering with single parents families.

I would probably still do what I do on the side (wedding photography) but as my full time job.

I think I’d actually enjoy being a Stay-At-Home Wife, haha. But of course, I’d do other things to occupy my time. I think a big thing for me would be finding a local library and volunteering there, especially if I could do something like story time with little kids. 🙂

Honestly, I’d even be happy just putting books away. I’ve done that before and I liked it because books I never would have noticed otherwise would catch my eye and I could read the covers of them to see if it would interest me.

I’d also do a lot of baking. And I would be able to go for strolls more often which is something I love to do to clear my head, but I rarely have the time now.

ETA: And crafts! I love me some crafts.

I would love to take different types of courses…. language, cooking, art.  And I would LOVE to learn how to play the fiddle…. perhaps go to Ireland for some lessons, hahaha.

And I volunteer a bit now (local museum and soccer club), but I would love to be able to volunteer more, especially at a hospital or retirement home.

And if I don’t win the lottery to be able to do this, I hope one of you other bee’s win it!

I would get the gym every day and try to find some classes at the gym during the day to go to regularly.

Volunteer at a legal advice clinic for low-income people and probably a shelter too.

Take a class/lessons of some kind:  cooking, cake decorating or a musical instrucment.

Play the piano at my church every other Sunday to relieve my Mom.  I do once a month now, but I need more practice time to play more!

I would love to be a Stay-At-Home Wife. I’d probably cook/bake a lot more, my mom used to make all of the pickled vegetables and preserves in our home and I miss that. I’m preparing for a career as a life coach so, even if I couldn’t work, I’d continue to read read read all about these things, and advance my level of understanding of self and others. I’d volunteer a lot, probably to work with kids, and something that allows me the freedom to help them through my personal development/coaching skills.

After my daughter’s initial therapy, schooling, activities were all lined up and in full swing (not yet, but soon!) I’d definitely work with AutismSpeaks.

For fun, I’d buy fabulous antique and vintage jewelry and fashion it into new creations. Maybe open a little business that’s more for my enjoyment than profit.

And of course I would travel!

I would take up classes just for fun like photography or glass blowing.  I would travel, maybe even buy an luxury RV and just see the whole country before exploring the rest of the world.  And I would definitely find ways to volunteer and give back on all of my travels.  AND I would really focus on getting my body into “perfect” shape.

I’d travel, maybe open up a dog rescue, watch real housewives on my couch all damn day, and take some classes. Like pottery, photography, painting, etc.
