zird is the word [userpic]
There are so many things that I want to do. I want to meet the members of my bloggity inner circle in person. I want to do a collage page a day in my book. I want to spend more time with my kids doing things that are fun for all of us. I want to go to bed early with my husband. I want to put together a book of my writings and publish it. I want to live closer to my sister, and my brother, and my mom. I want to walk a half an hour every day, no excuses. I want to fly home for the holidays. I want to commission art from Wee, and the other artists in my personal dream art gallery. I want to help Rée clean her house. I want to THOROUGHLY clean out my closet. I want to buy all the music and the books on my wish lists and then I want time to listen to and read them all. I want you to send me a page for my friends-book if you haven't already. I want to see if you're paying attention. I want to find the motivation to make our yard and garden beautiful. I want to begin saying yes again, instead of no. I want to spend more time with my friends here and get back in touch with my friends there. I want to continue working every day at a job I am good at and that I love. I want to change my eating habits for the better and lose weight. I want to do my part to make a difference in this world. I want enough time in my life to do all the things on my wish list.

I want to figure out a way to make wishes come true for the people I care about.

I want to find something that makes me smile or laugh in each day.

I want to be more inspired about what I am writing in this journal.

I haven't forgotten about the page for your book - I just FINALLY had a major revelation about what to put on it the other day. Woo Hoo! Craft store, here I come!

im paying attention ;)

sounds very good :)


maybe this would help in gardening?

Re: btw

thanks for the link! I'm afraid it will take more than that, though, since I am NOT a gardener and will most likely never be one. What I ought to wish for is a gardener to come and transform our yard FOR us. :P

I can't help you with all of these, but this one I can...:

"I want to find the motivation to make our yard and garden beautiful."

If business continues going well (meaning I will be able to afford to do this), I'll make a pint of coming to visit you (in the fall or next spring?) and we will work on this together. It will be fun.

*smooch* ! That would be so awesome. Anders and I have actually talked about some ideas, but actually getting around to DOING them?? ...yes. well.

Hmmmm...what would your list like if you put them in the order of priority?

I am payting attention, even if I don't comment much : )


I can also help with the garden when I'm there in June! - at least on those days when the kids are in school and you're at work and after Sarah leaves! Well, maybe it will only be a start for you as those perimeters won't leave many days - but I'll need something to do! :)
Plus.....this is a beautiful entry. It's important to keep a wish list and keep crossing off, changing, adding to it- so that we can pay attention to accomplishing our dreams. Just keep it in a location where you can notice it!! Love, Lizardmom

I want to find something that makes me smile or laugh in each day.

Of course for us, the readers, that is easy. We just read your journal entry.

Too kind! :) thanks for that.

Just putting your wish-list out there makes wishes come true, believe me. And next time you have 5 minutes of spare time, have a look at what you wrote and see what else you can do to achieve your goals.

so wonderful

This is a wonderful list! Putting your wishes out there so cleary and specifically has started the process of bringing them into being!! Can I be a horrible assvice person and suggest you take this post, pull out each individual sentence of wish and make it BIG and FULL OF COLLAGE and PUT THEM UP onthe walls?

Okay, sorry for the assvice-- couldn't help myself . . .


Re: so wonderful

*smooch* I think I might dedicate a couple of pages of my collage book, for sure. :)

(no subject) - (Anonymous)

Heh. Glad you made that clear. I was really worrying for your sanity. :P

star light, star bright, I wish I may, I wish I might.....

I'm a BIG believer in wish lists. This one is terrific!!
I LOVE the way you left it as a run on paragraph, AND I'm paying attention.
This is a good kick in the pants for your page which I began months ago, set aside, and never got back to. It's on the schedule for early next week : )


Re: star light, star bright, I wish I may, I wish I might.....


laugh or smile

"I want to begin saying yes again, instead of no."

Please laugh or smile about something today. Sorry, you have no choice but to do it.


Re: laugh or smile

To be honest, it's VERY rare that I can't find something to smile about or laugh at every single day. That's something I take joy in. :) That hard part sometimes is to get me to STOP. Heh.


I agree with other posters that just by putting this list out there, your wishes will begin to come true. I just recently wrote down 50 goals and I've already accomplished 3 of them, in just a few days time.

I'd also like to point out that I think you're already making a difference in this world, just by sharing your blog with us.


That was an incredibly nice thing to say. Thank you :) I feel very motivated after writing this all down, I must say!


I want you to commission art from Wee too!! of course, in a way you already have. I will absolutely be contributing a page to your handmade book... as soon as i get this comic book finished!

I haven't been around the 'net very much these days what with the deadline for said comic book coming up quickly and the woofies' broken leg and stuff, but I just have to tell you that you are certainly a something that makes me smile or laugh almost every time I come here and I'm so grateful for that and the wonderful spirit of community and goodwill you foster simply by being you!!

with unabated adoration, Wee xoxo

You inspire US...DAILY.
