Things they should have...

available to me...

Today was A day. I'm glad it almost over.

Yeah, that kind of day...

Started out good enough...while walking the pups I witnessed the most beautiful sunrise (seriously) that I have ever seen.

Clouds and sky the color of charcoal briquettes as the fire just starts to really get hot..that crimsom-yellow-red-orange color? And it wasn't a flat orangie sky..nooo..this one had dark contrasting clouds..

This is not my photo. Got it on Google. Why? I didn't have my camera, or my camera phone with me. Brought it yesterday when it was gray & icky. Go figure.

I wanted someone, anyone, to enjoy the sunrise with me and although Braxton & Lulu are my kids v. 2.0 , they were more interesting in checking their pee-mail than looking at the sky..

I almost knocked on someone's door to have them come out & look...but that may have been perceived as..craz...um..odd? So I didn't. But I wanted to. But I didn't.

It kinda just went down from there...

Thoughts at work:

What they need is one of those caution messages like you get when you are going to delete something...

Delete?

Yes? No? Delete all?

Only today is should have been.."Reply to all? Really? Are you sure?? Seriously? Uh-huh..well if you're sure.."

Then I wouldn't have been all like ...


..or..
..or..
..but it was...and I was.

Wait, what? you want me to tell you what happened? On a BLOG?? That anyone can read??

Yeeeeah..no.


Suffice it to say I have been thinking about what we should have..or at least what I should have available to me..at all times..

Things I Need.. by me

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Fast Food" routing option

I wish there was a sarcasm font

I wish I had a best friend who's job would be to immediately clear my computer's history if I get fired or die suddenly

I wish I had an easier time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5...pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood

I wish I could be contented that bad decisions make good stories

I wish I knew why I can look at my watch 3 times and still not know what time it is..

So, what do you wish you knew/had for your life to be perfect?

I wish that just once, I could twitch my nose like Sammantha Stevens and all my housework and chores I need to catch up on would be done. It would be so much easier to start over from scratch!

All My Yesterdays said...

Ya, I love that nose twitching idea! If wishes were fishes...

About the sunrise..funny, I had a friend up in Heber ask if I'd seen the awesome sunrise but, nooo...I was being Rosie the Riveter and tearing hoses apart so I could blow them up when that happened, so I missed it. Hope tomorrow is a better one for ya and the computer smiles (O:

I know it wouldn't make my life perfect, it's pretty awesome now but I want to be Queen!

Neabear said...

I want my house to be organized so that when I need something, I know where to find it. We were having issues finding things as we were packing for our trip!

I would like to be able to speed learn. like all the functions on my phone, how to use Paint shop pro, how to use all the remote controls that sit on the TV boss's chair.

I just love sunrise pics! Sunsets too! I'm amazed at all the beautiful colors!
Wishes......I wish someone would make me lay down after lunch and take a nap daily. They did that when we were children and I, for one, need this more now!

Yes! on #s 2,4,5 and 7! For me? I don't know as if I want my life to be perfect. I think it would be a bit boring if my days went without a challenge. If I had to choose, it would be to keep the challenges small.

Sunrises are a blessing, they are supposed to remind us that it is a a new day, a new start!! I would also like the nose twitchy thing... with no instructions! The mistakes could be a good laugh!!!

Pen Pen said...

Pen Pen said...

The only thing that could possibly make my life perfect would be for DH to get a hearing aid....maybe not!

Lisa said...

Beautiful sunrise. Nice story to go with it.

Connie said...

I wish winter didn't have to be cold. I love it really, but I hate being ice cold all the time.
Can you arrange this for me ? I would be most grateful !!

Stay Cozy & Thanks for your friendship

I love your hilarious list of things you need! Come to think of it, I really need all those things, too. Plus lately, while driving, I've been wishing for one of those old Star Trek phasers. I don't know, something about looking in the rear-view mirror and seeing a truck two inches off my bumper with a driver text-messaging and eating a donut at the same time has been making me wish for one of those phasers like Captain Kirk had . . . set on "stun" of course . . . well, maybe occasionally set on "vaporize"!!

A computer that never got viruse's! Oh dream on Honey...

Karen said...

I am still waiting for the flying cars. I made a bet with my husband that we'd have them in our lifetime. The other thing we need is some sort of heaters that would instantly melt all the snow off our cars.
