Wishful thinking

Wouldn't it be amazing if there were such a thing as the dishes/laundry/dusting fairy who could take care of washing your dishes, loading the dishwasher, unloading and putting all the dishes and pots and pans away?

And if this fairy also did your laundry and folded it and helped you organize your closet that was turning into an explosion of things you'll never wear again and things you'd love to wear if only you could find them?

And wouldn't it rock if there were a way to zap yourself to Starbucks and back, or if Starbucks actually DELIVERED?

Well, for me, if anyone actually delivered besides Papa John's. And maybe Jimmy John's. And maybe Pizza Hut, but we've never tested that option because for so long they didn't deliver to our 'hood.

And it would also be pretty freakin' incredible if when you closed your eyes at night to go to bed you could fall asleep fairly quickly without having to get up to pee like ten times or sitting at the iPad to tire yourself out when in reality what you were doing was stirring up the brain waves that need to be resting. Wouldn't that rock?

And it'd also be pretty cool if your husband didn't fall asleep in the amount of time it took for you to come downstairs to fill your water bottle and bring up your cell phone.


As if you didn't already KNOW he was asleep.

That'd be kind of cool, too.

Where was I? I was dreaming, wasn't I? Yep. I know. I totally was.

It'd also be pretty cool if I could just find a way to motivate myself to do every single thing I want to do during the day, but oh, wait, first it'd be AWESOME if my STUPID ANNOYING COLD WOULD GO THE HECK AWAY!!!

Yeah, it's kicking my butt. In a big way. So it'd be awesome if I could sleep through the night tonight without coughing. Please.

Yeah, that's all I'm wishing for on this crazy, dreary, rainy, headache inducing afternoon. Oh, and for my husband to get rid of his cold. Because me having a cold and him having one that lasts more than - say - 20 seconds? Not cool. So if his would go away? THAT would be amazing.

  1. I think we are having similar days. I wondered the minute I got up this morning if I ever will feel rested....and have a little headache that just won't leave. And what if we calculated how much time we spent doing laundry. No. Better not.

  2. Yes I agree with all of these!!! =)

    Found your blog via Jana's! So cute!! =)

  3. Hope your cold eases and that you get better sleep!!

  4. This is great!! Y'all are so creative with things that would be awesome!!

  5. I hope you feel better soon.

    No one delivers where I live ;-)

  6. Colds in the summer suck! I think it's worse than in the winter really...
    Hope that you feel better soon!

  7. I pray to the laundry/dishes fairy every night. She never visits. Screw her!
