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) Two Places at Once - I want to be able to be two places at once and be completely conscious in both situations. When I'm short on time, this would be extremely helpful. For example, Sunday - I had two grocery stores to go and an entire house to clean. Who wants to waste all that time when you could be READING? Yeah, me neither. It would be really helpful (not to mention extremely cool) if I could go to the grocery stores at the same time that I am at home cleaning the house! Think of all the things that I could get done! I could take a nap while I'm out for a run. Well rested AND toned.

2) A Pause Button - I can't tell you how many times I have wanted a remote control for life. To be able to rewind to those special days, fast forward past dental appointments...but this past week, I've really needed a PAUSE button. I'm blowing through my stack of books. I feel incredibly guilty just sitting around the house reading. I've even thought maybe I need to hang out with someone who has a cold so that I get sick and have a reason to sit around and read. I read The Dead and Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer in 24 hours to give an idea of my idleness. Yes, I taught this morning. But as soon as I got home, I was parked on the couch reading. I even turned down a nap to keep reading. So a pause button would certainly help my case. I wouldn't have to feel guilty spending the time rediscovering how much I love to read!

3) Help - This one is widespread and it's for all the areas affected by Irene. My best friend's parents are in New Jersey. They haven't had power since Irene swept through town. I can't imagine. Luckily, it's not too hot so they aren't suffering that way. But I'd love for them to have power. I can't imagine losing everything in a flood. So I wish comfort for those who have lost their homes and for those who have lost loved ones. I would have called this "Healing" but I wanted to include the people without power or food, which doesn't technically fall under that category. Hence, Help. Whatever Help people need.

What about you - what are your wishes for our magical cat?


  1. A lot of people lost homes because of Irene.
    We need a way to Tivo life!

  2. I agree completely with all of these! Taking a nap and running at the same time would be the best combo ever. And a pause button (and rewind and occasionally even fast forward) would be fantastic!

  3. make a wish and while you do, I'll be wishing it comes true! Ditto on all your wishes. I especially like the remote control for life (like in Adam Sandler's movie). It would be awesome to Pause right now. I need a breather for sure! Hey I miss you and I still have your menthol candies. I wonder when we can meet up?

  4. So sweet! My sister lives in MD, she appreciates all of the well wishes. =D
