I wish….

These days my five year old, Annie, starts most of her sentences with, I wish. “I wish we had chocolate chip cookies. I wish I could have that toy. I wish I was eight. I wish I could go to the volcano and meet the volcano sisters (don’t ask). I wish we could go to the park. I wish I could go to Hawaii?!?” Let’s play that game and pretend for a moment that we can get everything we wish for. (It’s supposed to be indulgent by the way. We all wish for world peace.) Here’s my wish list.

I wish to go to Disney World and Italy (not necessarily in that order)
I wish that my kids were always full and never needed snacks
I wish for our debt to just vanish
I wish Granville Island was 30 minutes closer
I wish for an endless supply of shampoo, face cleanser, and all things like that. I am so over spending way too much money to be a girl
I wish for a cloak of invisibility. I don’t know why…. I just think it would be cool to have the power of invisibility
I wish that filling out forms wasn’t this giant obstacle to overcome
I wish I could still swing on a swing like I did when I was 6. I don’t know why they make me so sick now
I wish that the next time I fly the airline would bump me up to first class
I wish that more things work out the way they do in my head

What’s on your wish list?

Swept Up

In these photos

We were in our backyard having a little fire in our fire pit roasting marshmallows and eating cheesies when it began to pour. Afterward there was this.
Don’t these look like the perfect ‘I wish’ pictures?

    I wish my hair was long glamorous on some days and short and pixie-ish on others.
    I wish chocolate was calorie free!
    And I wish I played the drums, knew how to restore furniture and that I had 12 weeks of vacation a year.

    I wish less shallow things too, but I can’t think of any right now. 🙂

    I wish I could take my grad program classes at home.
    I wish I could meet George Strait. 🙂

    I wish I could take any insecurities, and worry away from my son on his first week of Kindergarten & riding the bus…
    I wish I could be a fly on the wall in his classroom to see him learn & grow.
    I wish that I didn't feel so insecure about him being at Kindergarten!
    I wish we could go back to Disneyland, Club Med, or wherever…
    And last, I wish that my husbands parent's Estate would hurry up & close so we could pay this house off & move on not only financially, but emotionally…. sigh….
    Oh and I wish I could play the guitar & sing…
    And ditto on the chocolate & the hair! LOL!!

    Marnie, It seems everyone is bummed by real estate. I hope it all works out for you guys!
    And I wish I could sing too with this perfect voice that maybe has a hint of a rasp… I would be all effortless and cool…. anyway….
