Random Wishes

Do you remember that song from the 90’s “I wish”? You know,

“I wish I was a little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good I would call her …”.

It was a rap-ish song so maybe not. Either way that is the song I have been singing to myself this morning, making myself laugh. It’s true. Every one has some of those wishes that will never really happen, so I thought I would share few of my own that have been on my mind lately.

I wish I took money out of savings, when there still was one, and renewed our zoo membership. K1 keeps asking to go, and it was nice not having to spend money to go out and do an activity for the day. While I’m at it wishing, I should have also gotten a few other memberships; Sea World, children’s museum, science center ….. I could keep going, but those are at least memberships I would have, or have thought about getting.

“Blow out the candle and make a wish”

I wish I had more, or really any, time to knit. With kids, homework, and life there is really not much time left for such things. I also am super amazing at finding knitted things I would like to have or give, which doesn’t help the cause.

I wish we had a new car. While I’m at it something at least hybrid, for my little green heart. We constantly have to fix something, or should be fixing something on both of our cars. They aren’t going to last forever, but we are really trying. It’s the “green” thing to do you know, less waste and all.

I wish I had a better place to craft, and keep crafting supplies, both with and without children. I would love to get a sewing machine, but without a table to use in on, or a spot that can stay messy, it’s not a great idea. I also have crafty supplies stuffed everywhere. If someone else needed to find something they would never find all of it. Glitter, fabric scissors, random scrap fabric, is in a drawer in the kitchen. Tulle, ribbon, more scissors, hair clip supplies, they are in a plastic back above the washer and dryer. Scrapbook paper, stamps, fun punches and cutters, stickers, those are on my dresser right now, but they go in the closet in the kids room. I also have wreath making supplies everywhere. As you can gather everything is everywhere. It would be nice to have a room, or corner that was safe from little hands.

I wish I already had my spring plants! It was so beautiful yesterday I went out and played in the dirt. Pulled roots out of soil in pots, turned it all over, planted some spinach, but I wanted to do more. Tomato’s and peppers, and cucumbers, oh my. So I packed up the kids and went to a friends house and built a retaining wall out of flagstone, for the garden we will have at his house. It was nice, I just wish it were my own. Someday right?

I wish we already owned a house. At this point we could stay in SoCal, and if it meant we had a house, I wouldn’t be angry. While I wish it were somewhere else, something less than perfect is better than the nothing we have now.

I wish this English class was less difficult. I know it’s called composition and reading, so naturally there will be a lot of reading and writing. The topics selected by this teacher are interesting, but not quite my cup of tea (chamomile please). His teaching style is odd also, but that could be a post alone. I am sure when it’s done, it will be done, and I might even tell another person “Oh, it wasn’t that bad”, but today it is that bad.

I’m sure I could keep going but I will stop there.

What are a few of your random wishes? Do any of them look like mine?
