My Grown Up Christmas List

I know this idea's not original, but I heard the song the other day and it did get me thinking (about how much I don't really like that song, among other things...).
If I got to write a list, a list that included everything I could possibly want, what would I ask for? Well, a new crock-pot, and a stand mixer might be on that list, but I can do better than that. I would wish for the next 6 years to be almost exactly like the last 6 months ( minus all the times Mr. Cavehair has been sick.) I would wish for my children to have the knowledge I have, minus the experiences that forced me to gain said knowledge. I would wish for Elf to play on network TV. I would wish for our collective siblings to find in life what they are looking for. I would wish for a friend (or two) who lived nearby and would come over in their sweatpants and eat my cookies and drink my milk and bring their laughs and their twirpy kids with them. I would wish for Filiberto's Chile Relleno Burrito's to be calorie free ( and the Horchata too!) I would wish for my husband to be bullet-proof, my children to know that names-can-never-hurt them and for myself to always have a smile ready. I'd wish to be a fly-on-the-wall in my son's Kindergarten class.
I'd wish to be able to take away the painful things locked inside my loved one's minds. I would wish I could figure out how to write my Fit for Service blog in a way that works for me. I would wish for my blogging friends to know how much I appreciate them. I would wish for JP to know how much I love him. I would wish for Real Christmas Trees to be fireproof, elderly people to die only of old-age, and BinLaden to be found. I would wish that we could just eat the sausage without knowing how its made. I would wish that I could sit through "Its a Wonderful Life" and think its just as wonderful as I'm supposed too, I would enjoy Hot Cocoa like normal people, and broken cookies really would offer up my heart's desire.
But most of all, I would wish Jennifer Anniston would just shut her mouth.

Love your wish list! It is amazing to see what's in our heads once we have written them down. What a fun post! Thanks♥

Great list! I am so with you on the calorie free food...only I would make Fettucine Alfredo calorie free.

Tink said...

Haha on the Jennifer Anniston! Loved your post. Put a smile on my face. I would wish for many of the same things; but I'm not an Angelina fan. No way. Have a beautimus day.

Awesome. Best list ever.

WV= wiescrag, rhymes with wisecrack, which seems fitting

The Anniston comment came from writing this post and then she came on in one of those awful children with cancer commercials that "celebrities" do to make themselves feel better and I just find her particular commercial the most annoying of all of them and that sentence came out and I re-read what I wrote and just decided to leave it that way because it worked for me! LOL So, it wasn't particularly a Pro-Angelina post, but I definitely have had more than my fill of Ms Anniston by now. Although, I will say that since I heard the story about her chastising the reporter for assuming she was a liberal and then saying "youd be surprised how much we have in common" in reference to Clint Eastwood, I've taken a second look at her and while I don't approve of husband stealing, overall, I like her.

I'll be right over in my sweats with my twerpy kids.

And you would be welcome Vanessa! (But I'm out of cookies, so you'll have to bring some over) ;)

I tagged you for a no-brainer holiday meme if you do that kinda thing!
