I had to look up "drivel" to make sure I was spelling it correctly.
Today, Thursday, April 9, 2009, I'm thinking of a few things I'd like to have. And since I'm a narcissistic blogger, I am compelled to document and share it here. Actually, I'm contractually bound to post drivel like this from time to time.
See, I have no choice. It's in the contract.
*I want a stove with 4 (four!!!) burners. Instead, I have this wonderful (?) Jenn-air (big whoop) unit with a built-in grill (which hasn't been used in 19 years, I KNOW!). That cute little towel with the Easter-egg-shaped, purple-plaid baby chick covers the grill. Without a towel over the useless grill, there would be a loaf of bread crumbs filling it.
*I want a kitchen faucet that turns on to a moderate flow level. The handle of mine is stupid. There is just no other word to describe a faucet handle that will only turn on to full-force, Niagara Falls flow and is difficult to put somewhere in the middle.
*I want a guest bathroom faucet that doesn't spit everywhere.
*I want a recliner for The Mighty Hunter that is not a hazard to life and limb with its broken springs sticking out the back.
*I want a couch (or two) that is not just fugly and filthy and in a fabric that doesn't scream 1994 bad taste.
*I want a light fixture in the kitchen that is brighter.
*I want a light fixture in the guest bathroom that doesn't have a short and where both bulbs will work.
*I want a light fixture over my vanity area that doesn't scare me to change the bulbs. (two words: exposed wires)
*I want walls without rough-hewn, 1977 DARK paneling.
*I want pretty curtains.
*I want a pretty bedroom suite.
*I want a mattress for Sissy that is not a broken-down wallow.
*I want a little boy who will give me kisses whenever I ask for them.
*I want a little boy who makes the funniest faces for me and my camera. (check)
*I want a little girl who knows how to speak without whining when she's the least bit upset.
*I want a little girl who loves with all her heart. (check)
*I want fewer toys with a million pieces.
*I want this sore throat to go away and stay away!
*I want to want to clean house.
*I want someone to plant and care for my garden.
*I want to sleep until I can't sleep anymore for a few hours and then sleep again until I'm completely rested.
*I want to know what in the world "JA in a Day" is.
*I want my friends to have more peace and prosperity in their lives.
*I want my family to have their health restored.
*I want everyone to know the real meaning of this weekend's events and celebrations.
*I want to be excited about - or interested in - going to church again.
*I want to wake up and find that the President didn't say this is not a Christian nation.
*I want to wake up and not worry about my future.
*I want to remember that I don't have to worry about my future; Jesus took care of that worry for me.
*I want all two of you to have a great weekend and eat too much and find all the eggs before they rot.
(some observations from my want-list: We have some safety issues in our house. I need to get a grip. I have a lot to be thankful for and need to quit my whining and wishing for more than what God has already generously provided.)
