wish list


I want to go to the gym, but I can't because Sasquatch left my iPod earbuds over at a friend's house and I refuse to get on the treadmill without them.


I want to start getting out of the house more and shaking up my routine a little (or a lot), but when it comes time to actually put the effort into it I can't seem to muster any energy.


I want to be able to go to the public pool with the kids this summer and not have to wear a muu muu, but the local market is having a 3 for $10 sale on ice cream and I have a new deep freeze, so you do the math.


I want to be aggravated and jumping out of my skin when I have to be at work, and relaxed and calm when I get to be at home, instead of the other way around.


I want to know why, speaking of work, that I have become such a hot topic of conversation lately. I really do love to fly under the radar in the flight plan of life, and this has got my rudders in a twist.


I want to know why Sasquatch seems to feel that a good report card is the sign of a tragic life.


I want to know how the three foot long snake ended up in our trauma room at three in the morning, and while I'm at it I want to know why one of the docs felt compelled to pick it up and chase the nurses around the unit with it.


I want to know why I'm not more perked up by the fact that both George Clooney and Bill Murray appear to be back on the market this week, since I'm sure they'd both adore me if only they had a chance. (And if I laid off the mint chip).


I want something - anything - to go the way I want it to go and not take a sudden, unexpected curve.


I want to know - is that asking too much?

You are not asking too much.

A snake in the ER! I might have left and never come back.

WT said...

Were they rhetorical questions?

Potty Mummy said...

Nope - and I'm sorry, but down under I'm not getting to read the news so much. George is back on the market?

Rose said...

I thought George has always been on the market! Oh and another thought about divorce; I think the part you're going through right now is very similar to the transition stage in childbirth. You remember? the part where you can't imagine surviving? But you do and the great stuff is somewhere on the other side. Hang in. And ice cream's not so bad. . .

Having one's rudders in a twist sure sounds painful!

Eileen said...

I think your wish list sounds very reasonable.

I want to know why you don't take a vacation, perhaps another road trip with your mom. Sounds like it would be good to just get away for a bit. Rest and re-energized are the orders. I know easier said...but try.

XOXOXO

Sandy said...

I think you should give yourself brownie points for spelling muu muu correctly...lol.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Nope, it could happen hon. Sorry, I'm on catch up, hope you're ok.

the planet of janet said...

well... it COULD happen...

but personally, i'm in favor of the mint chip.

Happy in the Abyss said...

Ok. It was way too early and too not-enough-coffee-yet for me to read this one.

I want to know why you are so far away when all I want to do is hug you for hours....

And wait...did you say GOOD REPORT CARD and SASQUATCH in the same sentence? Sweet God of Wonder....

The Rotten Correspondent said...

ped crossing - thank god I wasn't there. Thank god.

wt - not intentionally.

potty mumy - if you believe People magazine he is. Can I mention for the millionth time how jealous I am of your trip? hmm?

rose - thank you. One more comment from you - the survivor - that helps me to know there is life on the other side. I can't tell you how much I have appreciated your perspective through all of this.

girl with the mask - and you thought knickers in a knot hurt.

eileen - we're going to California in July for two weeks. I can't wait.

sandy - I wanted to spell it Moo Moo, but I thought that was a little harsh.

Jo - at least you're trying to catch up. I'm behind - again - and overwhelmed at the thought.

janet - I'm always in favor of mint chip. That's what leads to the Moo Moo.

happy in the abyss - I didn't say it was a good report card. Quite the opposite, actually. QUITE the opposite.

Give George a ring, he'll love you, just tell him some ER stories!

aims said...

The snake thing? Made me go OMG!!!

And a doctor chasing people with it? Is he Fuc*ing sick?

You would have been resuscitating me as I would have died. Quite literally.

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Life is here to test us. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we knew everything. But then we would have no challenges to keep our minds active.

Take care, CJ xx

Jettied said...

You lost me at snake!!!!

Rudee said...

Why as why? Curiosity killed the cat. And that line about satisfaction? Thats BS.

Nearlydawn said...

Insert witty comeback here... I can't think of one tonight because I'm too damned sleepy. But you did get my attention with the snake, and the Dr. wielding it. I so would have clocked him... He would have been needing an ER real soon after that trick!

CrazyCath said...

You are not asking too much. It's just that sudden, unexpected twists or curves seem to be some one's sense of humour 'up there'. :0/
