What do I want...

Why is this such a hard thing for me? For the girl who's always drooling over something I can't really think of much. Every year my mother in law asks everyone for a wish-list. She is very practical and always wants to give us gifts that we actually want and will use. She's cool like that. =) Every year I dread this little ritual. I hate creating a wish-list. For some reason it's acceptable to have my little list of wants floating around in my head...but putting them on paper is nearly impossible. Ugh.

So here are some of my rather ridiculous, not to mention odd, wants. Are ya ready for this?

My first two are easy-a cure for Pediatric Brain Tumors and my husband HOME for Xmas. ~Ok, so now we'll move on to reality...

~A Gym Membership and Gym-babysitting Cards

~The Magic Bullet
What can I say? I'm a sucker for a convinving infomercial. I have been wanting this little gem for a while. Now that I'm consuming a lot of protein shakes this would be a really handy alternative to my full size blender.

~A Volvo XC70 with Integrated Child Boosters, and a moon roof. I wouldn't turn down the rear DVD system and would accept a gently used, low mileage version (as long as it has the aforementioned options). *drool*

~A babysitter a few hours a week during the next two patrols.

~ORDERS...I'd like to know where we're moving this summer. 'nuff said.

~A few fun attachments for my Kitchenaid. Namely the ice cream maker and the slicer/shredder/grater.

~a new printer that's compatible with my Mac

~a new camera (I haven't even researched them yet, though)

~A calendar with all of my friends and family's important dates (birthdays, anniversaries etc). It is such work tracking down all that info. LOL!

~An easy to use scanner so I can get our 'film' photos scanned and organized before we move.

~a jump drive or two to save and store picture files on (one for backup).

~A cute apron. Jaime reminded me I need one, maybe two. =)

~A massage would be SUPERB too. *grin*

Hmmm...I think I may have finally run out of ideas, for now. Funny how when I get going I have so many things I am longing for. LOL!

I'm off to bed. Have a great weekend ya'll!

Hi Angela! It was so good to hear from you! I liked reading your blog and catching up a little on your life. I went to Hadley's site and caught up a little bit on how she is doing and will be praying for her. You are one amazing mama! Glad to be back in touch with you! Love you!

Well, I guess if you thought I could handle it I would offer to babysit. AGAIN. But you don't trust me and maybe if I guilt you enough you will bring the kids over and go out with your husband and have a good time. Probably not though!
