I want a goose that lays golden eggs for Easter.

In my teen years (and if I'm being totally truthful with you, even now), if I want something from my dad, I act all cute and do the Veronica routine from the original Willy Wonka.

"Daddy!!! DADDY! I want a golden goose. I want a goose that lays GOLDEN eggs for Easter!"

It's kind of just this little joke that we have. Only now, it's not like I want to stay out late (well, actually, I wouldn't mind that, if I could actually stay awake long enough to be out past 9 p.m.) or have money to go to the movies or have my dad drive to who knows where to unlock my car for me because I locked the keys inside of it for the umpteenth time. Now, I mostly just say it to be stupid and funny (two things that I am really, really, ridiculously good at).

Now, my wants are a lot different. It's not so much about the movies, going out with friends, or being let into my car. These days, my wants are not as easy to fulfill. I've chosen my current top 3 wants, and I'm sharing them with you today. Should you have any suggestions for me, please - enlighten me.


1. I want my 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels DVD back. Kaylee, fess up. Where did you hide it, you little 14 month-old super sleuth? Mommy's butt is growing by the minute, and I won't do my squats and push-ups without my dear Jillian. Get on that, would you? While you're looking I'm going to go have some chocolate cake. Don't mind me, and don't ask me if you can have any. You can't. So be quiet, and go find my DVD.

2. I want a full piece of cheesecake that does not mysteriously decrease in size by 50 percent when I leave the house to go to the gym. That makes me cry. And whine. And turn into Ice Queen. My mom is taking care of this request this evening, so I won't be pining after it for much longer. But still, my mom is not here yet; hence, I am still wanting that cheesecake. Badly.

3. I want a clean house. I want a clean house that cleans itself. I have a self-cleaning oven. Now I want a self-cleaning house, dammit.

What do YOU want? Leave a comment with your top 3 wants of the moment.

Head on over to Mama's Losin' It and join in this week's Writer's Workshop Thursday for yourself. All the cool kids do it. You know you want to.

Ha! great idea!! Never thought about what I want. It's unually what my boys want. So I can vent here!!

1. I WANT a quitling machine. As much money as my husband spends on golfing you'd think I'd be intitle to one.

2.I WANT this weight to come off just as fast as it came on!! I didn't have to work for it to come on and now I have to work to get it off!! Go figure.

3.On that note of #2~ I WANT ice cream!!! I LOVE it and haven't had any. Doesn't make me a happy camper!

Thanks for sharing Sera, your blog is great!! Have a great day.

Oh, I want a self-cleaning house, too! If you find one, will you let me know? I thought maybe Sharper Image had one, but then they went belly-up, so maybe there's some other place out there making them...

Great Blog!
My wants hmmm....

1. My son to find my mom's Wii Fit disc so that I can have mine back cause my balance board is gathering dust and my fat is gathering friends for an extended visit

2. A wife - one just like me but not me, that cooks, cleans, does laundry and all the other stuff I have to do that I sit around saying "I don't wanna" and drag my feet to do, so that I can finger paint, play outside and build forts with my son for hours without having to see the aforementioned chores undone afterwards

3. A baby girl - then my family will be complete

Jenners said...
