Interesting question, particularly since I am coming up on the 4th anniversary of a life-changing decision/experience which led me down the path where I am today.
In 4 years from now, I will be 51 years old and mother of 4 adults (youngest will be 18 then!). Fairly certain the youngest 2 will stay with me for awhile into adulthood and I'm OK with that; they're pretty neat people and our house that we are supposed to close on this week is built with that in mind.
I will have moved at least once within my company and will be considering going back to school for a PhD as I am a glutton for educational punishment. I will be working on the 2 books I have in process now (not novels, I'm in no hurry to finish them, might become part of the PhD thing).
800 FICO (hey, a girl can dream!), relatively little debt, although if the price is right, there may be a new car in there around that time.
The biggest thing, though, as a PP said, was to be happy and share as much joy as I can. I'm very blessed to be in my job and my industry where opportunities abound for that.

100% out of debt within two years (no mortgage or car payment right now). I am down to (cc/loan debt) $15,000 from $30,000. My sons student debt is now paid to $1700 after this month. I hope I am able to donate more to causes I really care about.
My plan is to work, at least another 10 years, with 8 years toward saving as much as possible. In four years, I hope to be reaching toward that goal.

Hopefully I'll be in my career. And hopefully I won't be living in the same place...
