Wednesday Wishes

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) A Personal Shopper. Not for clothes shopping or shoe shopping. Not for FUN. For grocery shopping. I could hand her my Target shopping list and off she would go. That way I wouldn't go over $100 because SHE could be trusted to stick to the list. I would have that extra $100 to spend on something useful for myself (yes, another purse would be useful!).

2) To Win The Lottery. The Hubster TiVoed a billion episodes of How the Lottery Changed My Life. I don't want the Corvette. I don't even need a mansion on acres of land. A small home with a few acres outside of Portland, a cabin in Lostine, a condo in La Jolla and a house in Sequim would do nicely. Wait, that's a lot. Too much. So just the home in Portland and a nice motorcoach to travel to the other places in. I would love to throw the dogs in and hit the road. There is so much I still haven't seen and at my age it's really a shame. I don't need to go abroad when there is still so much here that I haven't seen. I could give money to my favorite charities (including my own non-profit who could hire a replacement for me while I roadtrip it). I think that I would also like to choose two people to send to each SCBWI conference, all expenses paid. I can't afford to attend all the conferences I would like. It would be great to give someone else an opportunity once I could afford it myself. Dream big, I say. So I'm not wishing for a small lottery win. I watched a couple who won $125 million tonight. Imagine THAT! What would YOU do if you won $125 million???

3) My Brother. He really dodged a bullet. He has exercised two out of the last three days and I just want so badly for him to keep this up. I know that this should be his wish and it won't make a difference if it isn't. I'll wish that this becomes his wish. How is that? Too confusing? Wednesday knows what I mean!

What about you? What are your wishes for this week?


  1. If I won $125 million, I'd publish all my books and hire a kickass PR team to market them. ;-)

    My wish for today is that there'd be a little less pain and suffering in the world. Think Wednesday could help with that?

  2. Great wishes! Right now, my wishes are small: I'm wishing to have a productive week. And that everyone I love stays happy, healthy, and safe. Have a great Wednesday!

  3. Oh boy, what I could do with $125 million! I would buy us a nice home, with lots of land, some good, reliable cars, probably get a boat again because I miss boating a ton. THen I would pay off my parent's house and my in-laws. Then set up college/savings funds for my kids. Then spread the rest around to charities and maybe take my family on a service vacation to Africa or somewhere we could do some real good in the world. Ooh, man I wish I could win that!

  4. okay for 125 million I would do all that Sara said and as for the wishes tell wednesday I want a clothes and grocery shopper and a live in au pair to watch the kidlet while I write.

  5. I love your wishes today! Can I have those too? Especially the lottery one.

    Congrats to your bro, hope he keeps on improving!!

  6. Your wishes are great.

    I wish that you get all of them. The million dollar may be hard but you still deserve it.

  7. I'm putting my Wednesday wishes towards your brother's continued recovery, and for us ALL to win the lottery!

    But guys, this means we actually have to play ;)

  8. You always have such great wishes!

    I have to steal your personal shopper idea ... but for clothes :D
