So, in an earlier post, I mentioned the dreaded "C" word (Christmas). I know, I know! It seems like it comes around earlier and earlier every year. But really?? It's just around the corner.
I am running extremely late this year (it seems) because I like to start early. That doesn't mean that I finish early though....that just gives me more time to buy more stuff. Why?? I don't know. Let's blame it on my childhood. (why not?)
But, in utter defiance to my usual ways, this year I am making a list for me. Usually, I am too worried about what everyone else is getting to even think about what I might want. Although this is still true this year; I have started to think about things I might want (yes, extremely selfish, I know. But hubby always asks, and I never have an answer.)
So Santa-baby, this is what I think I might like this year:
A new laptop that is mine; all mine! With no grubby fingers or big, pounding ones to touch it!!! (this will never happen in a million years! Who am I kidding?)
I seriously want Man-Child to get a new iPod. Why? So I can have his. I never really thought I wanted an iPod; my CD's were fine...but now I'm thinking (especially since they keep stealing my cd's....) - maybe I want one and this would be a good way to try one out.
Two pairs of diamond studs. Why? Because, unfortunately, I just lost one. But, I seriously need two pair - one smaller than the other - so that I can adorn my ears beautifully.
A shed. Yes, you read that right. I want a shed so that all the crap in my garage can be moved to the shed and I can park my car where it belongs. In the garage! (I'd show a picture of what total hell my garage looks like - but it's on my work computer. Truly? I shouldn't be saving pictures to the work computer....) (and actually? This might be in the works soon!!)
Other than that - I can't think of anything else I might want (that I wouldn't buy myself). Is it a bit extravagent? Yes. Do I deserve it? Yes. Will I get it? No. (except maybe the iPod; since I'm in charge of Man-Child's gifts). But a girl can dream; can't she?
