My Christmas Wish List

Husband is bugging me about what I want for Christmas and our Anniversary (it's on New Year's Eve) this year so I decided to make a list for him.  It got a little ridiculous so I thought I'd share my particular brand of crazy with all of you.  Plus it means I can put off going to the dreaded grocery store a few minutes more.

1.  A romantic weekend away that I don't have to plan, arrange for the kids to have supervision and make sure someone takes care of Grandmother.  It would be lovely to pack only for myself and walk out the door with no other fussing or preparation.  And I want it to be a surprise so stop asking me where I want to go!

2.  A flat screen television for our bedroom so I can decorate without having to work around a gigantic gray box.

3.  A magic pill to remove the extra 30 pounds I'm carrying around but am too lazy to actually exercise away.  Bonus points if the pill is permanent no matter how many Christmas cookies I eat.

4.  An automatic tennis ball thrower.  The dog is driving me batshit crazy by dropping slobber covered tennis balls into my lap every time I sit down.  I keep hiding them but she finds more!  She's a magic tennis ball conjuring dog!

5.  Mute buttons for the children.  I promise not to mute them more than 2 hours a day.

6.  Thicker hair.  Curly too.  Actually, just switch my hair with daughter's and we'll both be thrilled.

7.  A bachelor's degree in American Studies and a master's degree in education.  Four more years of college is such a drag!

8.  A private jet and pilot so I can fly to Vegas every time Jeff Renner starts freaking out about SNOW STORM 2008 *dum-dum-dum-duuuum*.  (At least it's coming on a Friday night this time so the kids won't miss any school.)

9.  Walk in closets.  But I don't want to move or remodel again *shudder* so do it with your magic construction powers.  And don't get sheetrock dust all over my clothes while you're doing it.

10.  Children that don't fight but instead love and help each other.  (Stop laughing)

That's about it honey.  Thanks for asking!

I'm trying to stop laughing so hard so I can type...hmmmm...what on that list might dear hubby do? I can see #2. That would be easy, and by the time he got through with the salesman it would be thrifty! But if he knows what's good for him he will do #1. The rest of it good luck!

MOM #1 said...

Shoot! That's a heck of a list.

If he gets you even one thing on that super-special list, then you simply MUST promise to have him call Mom #2 because our anniversary is on New Years Day and I just printed up your list and wrote a great big DITTO across the top.

I'll take it!

I think your husband is screwed!

If you get #8, will you come pick me up on the way?

Pat said...

You have the funniest blog by far. Your labels are great too.
Merry Christmas!

Elena said...

Hi Katy,
I'm Pat's sister-in-law Elena. She said I should check out your blog, saying you have the funniest blog ever. She's right, you are! I hope you get gift #1!
Merry Christmas!

I'm guessing you're going to be about 0 for 10 if that's your true list (you might have some luck on the first one, but you know you'll have to pay for it b/c your kids will be "taking care of themselves"--and grandma, and your house may no longer be standing. BUT I'm sure you'd have a nice weekend at the local Holiday Inn Express--they do have an indoor pool! Oh, wait...that's what MY husband would plan--never mind!)

Aw, come on. Don't be modest. Ask for what you REALLY want!
