I am playing along... eight things.

I am playing along with Jill and Jamie... enjoy, my next post should be published sometime in early August.

8 things I am looking forward to:
1. Summer... I have decided not to work this year.
2. Saturday morning, sleeping in... just a little... past 5:30, anyway.
3. Spending time more time with good friends.
4. A huge garage sale this summer... I want this junk out of my house!
5. Taking my girls to swimming lessons.
6. Having a clean house... will that ever happen.
7. Reading more... without falling asleep.
8. The day my girls no longer need me to help them brush their teeth.

8 things I did yesterday:
1. Taught a classroom full of children who have apparently been stricken with an acute case of Spring Fever.
2. A load and a half of laundry.
3. Unsuccessfully tried to figure out why my sprinkler system is not working...ugh!
4. Made dinner.
5. Bathed my girls.

8 things I wish I could do: In no particular order....
1. Work less
2. Play more
3. Be free of driving anxiety.
4. Enjoy yard work... I would love to have a garden.
5. Find the perfect, stylish, low maintenance hair style.
6. Decorate my bedroom... stole this one from you Jamie. I would love to have a bedroom that looked like a grown up room.
7. Have more patience with my own children... too many days I feel like all my patience is spent on other peoples children.
8. Lose thirty pounds.

Jamie said... posted! You really should warn me first, I almost fainted when I saw your name on the top of Jill's list.

I really think you should do a little gardening this year. Just do a few containers...I think you would enjoy it!

Jill said...

Yea! You made me so happy this morning when I saw you blogged! And look Jamie and I ran right over to read your stimulating post.

I am with Jamie on the gardening thing. Do strawberries, carrots, radishes, lettuce and easy things like that. Your girls would love it!!

I am hoping that I am one of the friends you will spend more time with ;o)
