Some Things I Would Love Pt. 4

  • More patience and understanding. I think this is one I've included on all of my lists. Will I ever learn and get it?
  • A slower temper. This goes along with patience and understanding. I'm too quick to react rashly/harshly/badly. It's a real bite in the butt when it happens. Sorry to anyone it's affected.
  • For my kids to be able to control their tempers. I know that their reactions are a direct reflection of what I'm projecting at them. It's a behavior they've learned. So, I know that if I want them to learn self-control, I have to learn it first.
  • To remember to really live in each day. (I figure if I continually remind myself, I'll do it.)
  • For this list to not get too heavy. Time to lighten up.
  • More time for reading. I think I've said this one before. If I have, I still haven't sorted myself out enough to make it happen.
  • Nice looking legs. My legs are gross.
  • To know whether or not the privacy glass in my bathrooms is working. What are my neighbors really seeing?
  • For cheese to not be so fattening. I would eat it on everything if I thought I could do it and remain healthy. I'd also, if left to my own devices and if I didn't have anyone else to cook for, eat Mexican food or some type of pasta dish for every.single.meal. Again, if I thought I could do it and remain relatively healthy.
  • A home liposuction machine. Carrying around a little extra chub? Pull out the old lipo machine and suck it away. Just like a vacuum and dirt on the floor. (It seems like this was a line in a movie. Mannequin? Terrible movie, but a great idea.) My machine would get a lot of use.
  • To get together more often with old friends. I mean really do it. Not just talk about doing it.
  • A new car. No, not really. Okay, yes, really. I'm still playing the "how long can we keep this old thing going?" game. It's really not a bad car and it's really in good shape for its age (12 years). It's not a necessity right now. It's an extravagant want. I can wait for the old one to die.
  • A personal grocery shopper.
  • A green thumb. I'm planning on planting some sort of a vegetable garden this year. It's been about 3 years since my last attempt. It was semi-successful. I think I got about 10 tomatoes and 5 cucumbers out of it. Okay, maybe it wasn't even semi-successful. Those numbers look pretty dismal.
  • To get back to posting regularly on my cooking blog. I have recipes, I just need to get them typed out and posted. And Blogger won't let me do a hyper-link to it at the moment. Grrrr! Still having some strange issues with it. A link to the blog is over on my sidebar. You know, just in case you're interested. ☺
  • Finally, I love this quote and wanted to share it:

"The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead; we remember that faith is always pointed toward the future." Jeffrey R.

I wish I had a more patience. I think I would enjoy my kids more if instead of getting mad at things I saw the humor in them instead.

Hey, maybe we are neighbors and didn't even know it!
