After taking Ren to her ortho. appointment we enjoyed a nice lunch with her and, a favorite of mine, furniture store browsing. This is something that we haven't done in a long time. John-Heath, every sweet inch of his hyperactive self, does not afford one a lot of time to linger and look at much.
I saw many things I would love to have. And I thought, "Wouldn't it be great to win the lottery?" Of course, my odds would be exponentially improved if I were to actually play the lottery.
We have lived in our home for three years now (or it will be 3 years at the end of August) and there are still many things we need to do. John is always telling me to make a list. "I can't remember if you don't make a list," he says. So, here is my top 5 dream list - in no particular order.
- bookcases/cabinetry built for the study
- new den furniture
- concrete my drive
- shutters on the front of the house
- redo our lawn (more grass, less weeds)
And, just in case John is playing the lottery behind my back and might one day win, a pool - a great big heated one with a hot tub, fountain, tanning ledge, and slide for the kiddies built into the side of a mountain-like rock formation.
