My Wednesday Wishes for the week:
1) A Magic Door - One that is just between my house and Colene's. This way, she can pop in on Sunday night for TRUE BLOOD and I can pop over every evening after dinner for an exercise partner. We can walk together, bike together and watch TV together. Bridge that gap between SoCal and Arkansas with a door. No scary wormhole traveling either. The door opens, I step into her living room. Although, if I feel like a Disney ride that day, maybe the door opens and I get on Peter Pan, which delivers me to her door. Who doesn't have days where they want to you "You Can Fly!"?
2) Scale Movement - Seriously. This is getting ridiculous. I was cruising along losing weight...down 8.5 pounds out of the ginormous amount that I wanted to lose. I got this brilliant idea that I wanted to up the exercise so I added running at the track and long bike rides. Um, weight loss came to a halt. Well, not entirely - I have been gaining and losing the same pound and a half for the last month now. It's frustrating. I haven't increased my eating, just my exercise. I can barely sit down this morning. I hurt EVERYWHERE. And the scale was up a pound and a half to reward me for my effort. Awesomesauce (as my kids are so found of saying).
3) Sara Larson - She was induced Tuesday. I am making this wish Tuesday night. My wish is that everything went well - that mom and baby are fine. She has her beautiful baby girl now!
I get an extra wish this week. Remember I said that Wednesday sometimes grants them. I want to wish for the people of Los Alamos - safety, and that they can return to their homes. I wish that the firefighters are able to get the fire under control without anyone getting hurt and that everyone is able to return to their homes INTACT. It's a big wish. A hard one to grant. But I'm wishing really, really hard.
What about you - what are your wishes for our magical cat?
