3 (again)

= the number of wishes I'd like to have granted right now.
  1. I wish I was as enthusiastic to finish a project as I am to begin one. Why do I always get bogged down in the middle?
  2. I wish I was a better homemaker/crafter/home decorator. I wish I was more talented in the home arts. Why can't I make my house as comfy and charming and clean and beautiful as other people?
  3. I wish I lived in a more temperate climate. What do you do if it's 98 degrees and 90% humidity outside all summer? You stay in the air-conditioned house, that's what you do. You can go outside, but only if you're going out to get in the air-conditioned car and drive to a place that's air-conditioned. You don't go outside and build a deck and plant lots of greenery and make a lovely outdoor living space. You don't even think about that!

  1. Well, I think you're wonderful. I know that doesn't count (I have been told many times, "Mom, you're my mother, you HAVE to say that", but, I still think you're wonderful, and possess myriad positive qualities. You're also extremely critical of yourself.

    I just love you, and have no criticism--because I think you're wonderful--circular reasoning, I know, but it works in my head and my heart.
