Remember when you thought all in the world would be good if you could just get through Algebra I in high school. Then you thought things couldn't get better if you got that perfect boyfriend. Then you dreamed of bigger boobs and skinnier legs to catch the guys attention (not that I dreamed of that! of course not …. but I had a friend once that told me she did!!!!). Then you get to college and if you can just pass your A&P class all would be better. Then if you could just get to 21 and could trash your fake i.d. you would be happy (not that I had a fake I.D either …. um …. okay so maybe I did and maybe her name was …. Regina Morales).
Remember those days?
Now I have a few things that would make my life almost perfect:
- A dishwasher that actually washes dishes with food on them, doesn't make a peep and things come out dry at the end. Oh what a glorious day that would be!
- A fridge that holds enough food for a family of 6 for a whole week!
- A washing machine that has an unlimited amount of room to stuff things in. I could have free time if I got this!
- A dryer that actually drys and is fast. Just one that drys well. Oh my gracious what a sight that would be!
- A vacuum that works at night while I sleep.
Is that too much to ask in this world?
I had to laugh at myself this morning when I was literally dreaming of these things and then remembered how all I wanted in high school was to reach 21 and ditch my fake i.d.! I thought I would have for sure arrived when I could do that. Ha! Then I got to 21 and I don't even think I one thing to drink on my birthday!!! Being a mom to four sure does change the things you day dream about during the day!!!
What's your latest day dream that you would have never fathomed dreaming about before you became a wife/mom/adult?
So funny Jamie!
I knew something had changed on my wish list when, just this past week, Eddie surprised me with a new fridge for my birthday and I was thrilled! I’m pretty sure a new fridge wasn’t what I was wishing for when I turned 21!
Isn’t that funny!!! I would wish for new appliances over jewelry any day!!!!
Too funny! OM goodness. I’m dreaming of a new kitchen aid appliance suite for my kitchen. A beautiful gas range that has that extra long burner down the middle so I can cook massive amounts of food at once; like you, a nice big fridge – so I can put my current one in the garage of course – for extra storage; like you, a dishwasher that doesn’t require that I wash the dishes before loading; and the biggie… an over the range microwave so I can get some real estate back on my counter! How’s that for dreaming? Oh yeah, and Rosie from the Jetsons would be nice too! Love you girl… thanks for sharing. Was just thinking of you guys the other day. <>
Oh my goodness. I totally know what you mean. I would love to have a dishwasher that was quiet. Right now if we run our dishwasher we can’t have the tv on because we can’t hear it. Oh, and I would love about 3 hours without the kids just so I could get the house clean. When I was 21 I would have spent 3 free hours shopping at the mall or at the spa.

I never dreamed of bigger boobs. I’ve had them since the 7th grade (I guess you could say that I dream of reduction). I did spend way too much time dreaming of the perfect boyfriend though.
Dishwasher. What dishwasher? Our current home isn’t equipped with such a thing! And yeah, a dishwasher would be nice, but the thing that occupies my thoughts and dreams right now the most is being able to hold my little Ugandans in my arms and bringing them home to meet our bio kids and really join the family! As you know loving littles from afar is SO hard at times, but I know it’ll be just like the pain of labor fading when you hold your bios in your arms the first time. When they’re in our arms the wait will fade away…And since we’re dreaming I’ll take a dishwasher too!
i’d love it if our dishwasher worked too! seems silly to practically wash it twice (hand wash then dishwasher) but ya gotta do what ya gotta do! this year we got a lawnmower for our birthday present — and we both were excited, never would have expected that would be what I’d want for my birthday!
i will always laugh when i remember your fake i.d. name. you are so not a regina morales 🙂 ha ha!
the answer the #5 = Roomba!
girl you know i’m still dreaming of one!!!
