Friday Five - the want version

Five whats, you ask?

Five things I want (today, anyway. Next week might be five favorite foods)

1. I want people to be honorable and do what they say they'll do. If you say you'll call, then call. If you say you'll help, then help. If you told me you cleaned your room then it better be clean. Should be simple enough.

2. I want to be 80 pounds lighter. Yes, I know how to make it happen, I just want it to be miraculous and sudden.

3. I want to go to a movie that I want to see, not that the kids want to see. And I want to go while I'm still awake, not late in the evening.

4. I want someone else to cook my breakfast.

5. I want my friends to have an easy life. Or, at least, a way out when they need it.

Y'all - all two of you - have five?


  1. When did you get this blog? I didn't know you had one!
    I love your list! ESPECIALLY your number 1. I am the kind of person who, if i say to you 'let's have lunch', i am definitely going to call you for lunch. And i am not very tolerant of people who aren't like this.

    I want my friends and family to have an easy life. Sometimes i feel very guilty that i do in comparison. But then again i know that comes because i don't have kids. And when i'm old i will wish i had a harder life earlier than later.

    OK, here's my Friday Five:

    Five New Things:

    1. The Black Keys music. I can't get enough of their El Camino cd and their Lonely Boy video.

    2. Can't wait to go back to being a brunette at my next hair appointment. I hope my stylist doesn't chicken out. I've been pretending to be blonde for 25 years. It's time.

    3. I am loving re-reading books i love. Finished One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, now i'm on to Cider House Rules. I think i might read Owen Meany next. Or Catcher in the Rye. I'm thinking about starting a book club.

    4. I made a chicken curry soup last night. I've never made that recipe before and it was so good! I am going to try and cook something new each month that i hopes becomes a staple in my cuisine.

    5. Because i tend to me a person who does the same thing in the same way i am going to work on not doing that so much anymore. I have been mixing up my running route. Not too much mind you. So far i've only run my current route backwards. Who knows, next week i may go down a street i've never been!!!!!! HAHAHA

  2. 1. I want the commotion in this family to die down. A respite from ER/Urgent care trips for a couple of months and health for everyone.

    2. I want to sit in a warm sunny place and read my Kindle books without interruption.

    3. I want to be relieved of the duty of having to arrange my mother in laws burial. I have to call the National Cemetery Registry to go through all the steps and then have to get her out there. Where does it say in the marriage vows that because I am the wife of the oldest son that I get this privilege.

    4. I want to have some pocket change. Enough to pick up something that's not marked down and on final clearance. Something that's new and fashionable.

    5. I want to stop avoiding answering my phone. I guess I should take my antidepressants and shut up now.
