This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!
My Wednesday Wishes for the week:
1) Lower Grocery Bill - this will truly take some magic. Don't ask me how I manage to spend $800 a month for TWO people (I know, I know), but I manage. When The Hubster put me on a budget, I did great...for two months. It has slowly crept back up again and I'm not sure why. It doesn't feel extravagent. I stick to my list (for the most part - if there is a big sale and I need it, I'll stock up). Sigh. I'm already $30 over for the month. I think I'm going to be doing some digging in the cupboards and getting creative with meals next week.
2) No More Insomnia - well, one can hope after all these years, right? You might think this would be helpful to have during a rewrite. You'd be wrong. With insomnia, I can't concentrate to write. I can't concentrate to do much of anything. I have to distract myself because I get all tied up in thinking how little sleep I'm going to get ("now I'll only get five hours", "now I'll only get four hours"), my heart races...it's no fun. I pop in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone", curl up on the couch so I don't wake up The Hubster and try to breathe. Eventually, I fall asleep. It's not a big deal so I don't know why I get so worked up over it, but I've been this way since I was a young child.
3) A Magic Carpet - So I can soar through the air, wind whipping my hair, like Whisper Silksinger. If you haven't read Laini Taylor's Dreamdark series, I highly encourage you do. What is more than fairies fighting demons? Skive! Her writing is so delicious, you could eat the books. Wouldn't a flying carpet be fun!?! I could visit so many people in an evening without having to bother with traffic. Suddenly, the two hours that separates my mom and I would be down to under an hour! I could be there to make her dinner and home to walk the dog before bed!
What about you? What are your wishes for Wednesday this week?
