The Short List

My short list of desires, in no particular order:

1. New everyday dishes that work. (Oddly, mine do not work. Long story.)
2. A backcountry hiking trip.
3. Various lenses for my camera.
4. New floors.
5. An exterminator.
6. A maid.
7. Bubble bath that doesn't feature Elmo and smell like blueberry-banana.
8. A bicycle.
9. Time for -- reading, writing, taking pictures, creating a few photo books, spring cleaning, decorating and baking for Easter, cleaning out the kid's closets and organizing their clothes, planting flowers.
10. A horse. Of course.

The one thing I want that I'm going to get is a cup of tea.

What's on your short list?

(PS: If your short list includes watching a movie, enter my contest.)

So THAT's where the blueberry-banana smell was coming from.

Frau said...

Great list, going to have to think about mine.

I have been thing about a list of things I would like. I was actually planning a post about it right after the 10 other post I need to write! But my short list looks like this so far:

New hair dryer.
Boar bristle hair brush.
Better flat iron.

Do you see a theme here?

I guess to top it all off would be someone to fix my hair everyday. Okay, let's not be greedy, every other day!

To not have to work full-time so I can be a wife. Sadly, this one might be a while. :(

That said, I did quit the new job I'd just started because I hated it so much. Money be d*mned!

mo - Yep that's me, smelling like a breakfast muffin.

Frau - I rarely have to think about a list of what I want. It's a curse.

Lori - At least your list is easier to get your arms (and wallet) around than mine!

Meadowlark - I wish that too very often - that I could just be a wife and mother. (I don't hate my job though, so I'm grateful for that.) I hope you find something you like!!

Ditto your list on time and new floors (our carpet in the den MUST GO). I need a home improvement fund to get all the yucky but necessary things done, such as having a huge old evergreen tree that has died in the back yard cut down. Blech! Now how I want to spend money.

I need our old dog to be "fixable." My heart is breaking over her declining health.

I also need a tropical vacation and a big ole drink, preferably something with rum.

Life As I Know It said...

seems like a reasonable list of wants....I hope you get them all - in time, but for now, I hope you enjoyed the tea :)

The ability to find new spring clothing that fits! And is on sale!

SoccerMom said...

-sleeping in past 7am
-having a cup of coffee in quite peaceful place
-taking pto at work for an actual vacation, not to run kids around for sporting events.

I'll "third" time and new floors, though I'm already being spoiled by getting half a new bathroom and so that will be all. I also want a date with my husband.

Wendy said...

I too, would love a couple of new lenses for my camera. It might be a disease! More time in the day would be nice, too. I hope you get some of your wishes.
