What a Girl Wants

The following is a list of things that I want:

Irish2 to quietly go to sleep when I put him in his crib.

More Sleep.

Irish1 to quietly go to sleep when I put him in his bed.

More time to read.

Someone to build my new kitchen for me.

Baring that, some time in which to build my new kitchen.

A night out with Sean.

Clear skin, or to be the age that my zits seem to think I am.

Both of the Irish twins to sleep the whole night long.



My sisters to live closer, like next door.

Someone to want to publish my book.

Someone who got the first half of my book to like it enough to ask me for the second half.

To not be such a workaholic.

Someone to mop my kitchen for me, or a guarantee that it will be more than a half an hour before a full cup of apple juice is spilled on my kitchen floor.

Apple juice to all mop up the first time.

Good granola.

To look around at my life and my beautiful children and enjoy them as they are more.

Irish1 to go to sleep so I can stop blogging one handed (so he can hold my other thumb) on my laptop, sitting next to him in his room and go watch Juno, or at least Last Comic Standing.

Oh wait…

    I think the granola will still be just as awesome, just not the surprise of receiving the granola…

    I haven’t read the first half of your book yet, but I keep it in my inbox to remind me! Send me the second half anyway because I’ll want to read the whole thing even if the first half sucks (not that it will because you wrote it so it will be great and very publishable and all that) because I have this need to finish books (and also of course because yours will be great and not at all suckish and I’ll want to finish it whenever I have two minutes together to read something). Send it!

    Oh, and I would like my youngest to sleep in her own bed. The whole night. And not crawl in bed with me 1 1/2 hours after I put her in her bed.

    If I knew how to build a kitchen and was like your neighbor or something or even just lived in your general vicinity, I would totally help you build your kitchen.
