I recently checked a pretty big item off my ongoing wish list:
Hi, I'm a tripod-cat and I'm a little nervous...
Now I'm slightly less nervous, so I've come out from behind the toilet, and am now behind the futon.
It got me thinking about what else is on my wish list, so I thought I would share. Because why covet alone when you can covet with friends, right? Right.
Oh, how badly I want an iPad. And it's such a frivolous want too - I have absolutely no need for one. There are no moments during my regular daily life where I find myself thinking, "If only I had an iPad right now! Why, oh WHY don't I have an iPad?" I do, however, find myself thinking, "Gosh, it would be really nice to have an iPad right now. I really wish I had an iPad..." I want the bigger screen for checking email and Facebook, I want the FaceTime, I want iMovie, I want the drawing pad, I want the photo storage... I want an iPad.
Not only do I want a new mattress, I arguably need a new mattress, which probably makes this the most likely next item to be crossed off the list. (That does not, however, make it number one on the list, because this list is prioritized by desire.) My back has been killing me, and I am certain that a lot of the reason for that is because my mattress is so old and saggy. Tpiglette says you can see it sagging just from walking past my bedroom and looking in the open door. I've had the mattress as my own for almost five years, and I got it as a hand-me-down from J., and he'd had it for years before that. So yeah, it's really time for a new mattress.
Admittedly, I probably wouldn't want/need a massage so badly if I had a better mattress. But still, there are other reasons why my back could use some tension release. I recently drove myself out to Vegas to visit Mom and Seeser, then, obviously, had to drive myself back. That's about 9 hours each way, sitting in an uncomfortable position, staying slightly tensed the whole time. And let's remember that not all that long ago, I spent two weeks in a third-world country working with kids. And not long before that, I ended a HELLISH school year that tensed me up like you would not believe. Adding the mattress thing on top of all that other stuff really makes for a sore back. And a massage sounds mighty good.
Okay, compared to other things on this list, pretty cheap, but still, more expensive than I ought to be spending, given I really do NOT need any new shoes right now. But still... SO PRETTY!
This is so easy to get, it's really more on the "Remember to get this the next time you're at Target" list more than a "Wish" list, but still. There you go. My apartment is hot and I need a fan.
Technically the "item" in question is the man, not little cake toppers. Sadly, while this would normally be first on the list in terms of how much I want it, it's at the end of the list because I realize it's not an "item" and can't really be put on a "list." But I'm working on it. Really and truly, I am working on getting this "item" checked off. (As much as it ever can be.)
So, friends - what's on your wish list today?
