I’m sure like many of you someone (probably your husband) has been asking what you want for Christmas. The older I get the more at a loss I am as to what I want. Sure there are tons of things that I want but they aren’t always really feasible. Except for that DSLR and Immersion Blender that my husband refuses to buy most of the items on my list aren’t really things that are readily available on Amazon.
My unrealistic Christmas list
A Dishwasher that actually washes the dishes. I want to be able to put dirty dishes in and have them come out sparkling clean without having to scrape them and scrub them first.
A maid. I’m an awful cleaner and I really never want to hear the words, “you should clean the baseboards” ever again. I’ve never looked at someones baseboards and I hope you aren’t looking at mine.
For my husband to tackle that “honey do” list that never seems to get done. Like the desk I’ve been asking for him to pick up since June.
Every item that I have favorited on Etsy.
To spend the day lounging, watching movies and eating take out. Like we did in our kid free days.
To sleep in and not feel like I’ve lost half the day.
For the laundry to just stop piling up.
Self cleaning bathroom.
For my hair to stop coming in grey.
My son to stop saying, “add this to my Christmas list”. Santa is beyond done.
A never ending supply of wine.
For the dirty socks to find their way to the hamper.
For the bills to pay themselves.
To finally be the person I am on Pinterest. Crafty, stylish and a great chef!
A refrigerator and pantry that replenishes it self, no more food shopping.
The return of All My Children and One Life to Live, yeah I haven’t let that one go yet.
The 4 year-old to say “please” and “thank you”, without me reminding him.
To get Taylor Swift out of my head, that infectious little album just won’t quit.
For my son to come home from his grandparents and say, “no one brought me any new toys today”.
A day without Mickey, Jake, Sophia and Doc.
A way to slow time down so that I could truly enjoy the holiday season instead of feeling so rushed.
For an extra week or so between now and Christmas.
And while I know I can’t get most or any or all of these things. There is one thing I can give myself and that is a break. I realized on Wednesday that the days between now and Christmas is shorter than I imagined. Between work and plans there isn’t a whole lot of time left for me to enjoy this season with Jackson. So this will be my last post, likely until the New Year, you can still find me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season with your families and that Santa is good to you and yours.
