Last week I said I wanted snow, I needed snow. It's December and Christmas is around the corner, but it doesn't feel right without the cold, fluffy, white stuff. And guess what happened? It snowed this weekend. My kids woke me up on Saturday morning with "There's snow outside!" shouts coming from their bedrooms. It was exciting, but then I thought "Maybe I should have asked to win the lottery instead." But alas, I asked for snow, which is much more likely in December than winning the lottery at any time of the year. It also got me thinking about my Christmas list. I don't want a lot, I've finally reached the part of my life where receiving gifts isn't all that exciting anymore. But if I could have one thing, well, here's a list of things I want:
1. A gift card to Barnes and Noble that never runs out of funds. Can you imagine the kind of damage I could do that store? Not only for myself, but also for my kids and loved ones. Passion for books runs in the family.
2. A never ending supply of chocolate. My secret stash always seems to run out too fast so I would love it if my favorite chocolate would just magically refill itself without me having to step foot out my door.
3. A teleporter. Flying is just way too dang expensive. It would be nice just to pick a destination and press a button and voila! I can be there in minutes and drag as much luggage as I want without being charged an arm and a leg. On the plus side, my husband is getting more and more motion sickness as he gets older and we'd be able to avoid the puke-inducing turbulence.
4.. The Revisions Master. I would love a tool that had the ability to read my thoughts and all those revisions I want done and just took care of them for me. Wouldn't that be handy?
5. A new microwave. Ha! Our over-the-stove one died a while back so we took our free standing microwave out of the garage and have been using that instead. I hate all the counter space it takes and want it gone. But we've been waiting for a rocking deal to buy a really nice one. Microwaves are one of those things you don't realize how much you depend on until its gone. And this is a totally doable gift.
