I Wish

Over the past couple of weeks, my director and I have been editing a multimedia resource (photos + video + text) about the conflict in Colombia, and I've spent quite a bit of time thinking to myself: damn, you've got nothing to complain about. 

Nevertheless, I find myself wishing for stuff. Well, not necessarily physical stuff. But like:

*that wine and cheese provided more nutritional value (and less calories) than they do
*that my house was always super clean & organized
*that it snowed in the Bay Area
*for a TempurPedic bed
*that new episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo would come on every night to feed my obsession

*that no innocent person was in prison
*that people in general were better at understanding & accepting each other
*that I could afford to jet off to Pittsburgh to visit my bff a couple times a year
*that Jax Teller weren't a fictional character
*that I was at the beach wearing this swimsuit coverup:

*that I could will away insomnia & sleep all night, every night
*that I had a beagle puppy
*that my favorite veggie Chinese place delivered
*that I had a cuter nose
*for hardwood floors, a big yard, and a front porch

What are you wishing for these days?

Cheeeeeeese. Amen to that. And to Jax Teller. If I ever have a boy I am seriously naming him Jax. My future husband doesn't have a say. Beagle puppy.... Ahhhhh my heart. I just want all the puppies in the world.

I think that we all know there are people who are worse off then us but it still make it hard not to wish for things for ourselves.
I wish Brendan would do the washing up without me asking
I hope I get the promotion at work I applied for
I wish my iPhone wasn't broken
A whole lot of things but they are the main ones!

I feel ya! I wish for a different job, one I like more. I know it's selfish when there are so many unemployed people! But if I don't have to be unhappy why settle?

I can help you with your beagle wish. Just let me know when to ship either Tulip or Maddie your way. They have both told me they would love living in CA. I'm over having 3 dogs (even though I love them all to pieces and wouldn't really ever give them up). I can pretend, right?

Hehe, this post made me smile in public without realizing it until I looked up and saw a stranger smiling at me for smiling. :) I'm sitting at Panera browsing thru everybody's blogs. I love this one because sometimes we have to be selfish and wish and desire everything. I know I gave myself that chance last night, haha, I'm good on being selfish for the next few weeks or so. ;)

I'm dying for a TempurPedic bed too! Mine's all lumpy and horribly dented. I've had mine for longer than they say you should keep a bed.. but I can't afford a new one!

You and my mom are Honey Boo Boo fans. There isn't a day where she isn't imitating her. :)

I'd mostly just be happy with the puppy :D

This is a fun and thoughtful list. I'm not sure what I'd wish for, though I know there's plenty.

Mostly, I wish dinner would make itself and these pounds would lose themselves and this thesis would do itself, but I guess those are all things within my control, though they don't always feel like it!

That I could find this season of SOA to watch and catch up on!

That my credit cards would just pay themselves off.

That the cinnamon roll that I ate today had no calories.

That I could hang out with tiny Neil Young.

wine and cheese SO shouldn't count as calories....oxygen doesn't count, and it's just as necessary!!

Micaela said...

Right? I think about that all the time, how I have NOTHING to complain about. My father is on a church mission in Honduras feeding the hungry and I'm worried about eating too much.

I am wishing:

*mid day naps again, with my dogs on my bed with me
*that I lived close enough to my parents that I could drive up every other weekend
*that i didn't compare myself to other mama bloggers (nice houses, nice camera = nicer photos, nice jobs, etc)
*that Jason Ritter would tweet me back
*that I could see my grandmother again
*that I could fit in my pre-pregnancy jeans
*that i could cook like my Momma

I also agree that no innocent person was in prison. But I don't agree with you on your nose.

Micaela said...

I meant to add: LOVE YOU! and your posts lately :)

melifaif said...

I adore your nose. :) And I am soooo with you on the cheese and wine thang. I am playing catch up since I have been m.i.a. for a while...

drollgirl said...

well YOU have an awesome wishlist!!!!!!

and BOY do i want that coverup! SO CUTE!!!!!! i would wear it as a dress! i love it!!!

right now i am wishing my boss wouldn't come to work so that i could goof around all day. and that my chronic shoulder pain would go away (but my arms are getting fatter and fatter, so i am doing push ups, which makes the shoulder pain worse -- vicious cycle!!!!). and that my house would magically clean itself. and that i would come into tons of free money! WHEE!

happy weekend to you! and may at least SOME of your wishes come true SOON! :)

I so need wine and cheese to become a healthy food group. It would certainly make my life a lot easier. And hello, adorable swimsuit cover-up. I could use another tropical vacation ASAP, especially with this cold snowy weather in Chicago! said...

That I could buy a house RIGHT NOW
That I could transfer back to teaching high school RIGHT NOW
That my apartment was like 50 feet bigger
That I could lose these pesky 5 pounds and keep them off!!
That grad school is done

And totally agree witht he clean apartment thing or being at the beach...sigh. Have a great weekend!!

P.s- i survived Kris wasn't too bad haha

Chloe Moon said...

I wish that Boyfriend were not so OCD.

I wish that I could stay home and make money playing with my Bambinos all day.

I wish my mom would learn her boundaries.

I wish we would stop having arguments about more kids.

I wish that I magically looked super toned and in shape.

I wish our house was completely remodeled so we could just get to the decorating already.

I wish everyone treated others with love.
