If Wishes Were Fishes

I wish every night could be Friday night.

I wish people would cheer for me whenever I finished a meal. And that I could take a victory lap when I finished washing the dishes.

Actually, now that I think about it, I wish the dishes would wash themselves.

I wish I could just lie down and sleep wherever I was when I was tired. The fabric store. The park. The train station. Okay, maybe not the train station. That would be gross.

I wish I’d known that both my boys would inhale this cauliflower cake. I would have made it ages ago.

I wish someone would volunteer to be my personal shopper to run my errands, get me a new pair of Chacos, and find me the perfect spring jacket.

I wish that I had one of those machines that pulled me out of bed in the morning, took off my clothes, put new clothes on, and sat me down at the breakfast table. Oh wait. I am the machine. I do that to Squish every day.

I wish all my sisters lived in my building.

I wish that someone would offer me a job. A writing job. That I could work from home. In my “spare time.” And get paid for.

I wish for a good night’s sleep tonight, a good run tomorrow, and no more pain in my leg. Ever.

Oh, and world peace. I wish for world peace.

What are you wishing these days?

  1. Right now, I wish for some Dove chocolate and some sun. I would wish for a REAL date with my husband (preferred date? roof-top dinner), I wish for all school loans to disappear, and, I wish for a house (some day). 🙂

    Real dates are few and far between, aren’t they? We even have a baby-sitting co-op set up so that, theoretically, we can go out on two a month. But we often end up going home and cleaning the apartment or something. Not a real date. Also: amen, chocolate. Amen, school loans. Amen, a house some day. We got some sun today so we’re good to go. 🙂


  2. Yum, that “cake” looks great– will have to try it. I’m guessing Manchild didn’t have any left to eat for breakfast the next morning. I wish for 15 minutes of peace and quiet and a date with my husband. Amen.

    Nope, no cake for breakfast. Thank goodness. I think we’re done with that.

    Good luck with your wishes. If you need someone to watch the girls while you go on a date, I’d be happy to. 🙂
