What I want to be when I grow up:
My bizarre and unrealistic thought is that in 3 or so years, when Lu is out of college & on her own entirely, give her the suburb life and move to Poetry, Texas, raise goats and develop boutique goat cheeses for a small craftsman style restaurant located on the farm to market road where I've developed a menu showcasing my cheeses and a small giftshop with tasteful inventory. And win Culinary plaudits all around from salivating local food critics....
Or, be a freelance Magazine Article Writer
Or be a rock star.
What I want for Christmas:
Tx Mountain Laurel or Possumhaw Holly Plant
Cheap Gas Grill
Black short socks
Microwave w/variable power levels
Cheap Kmart Tool Kit
1/2 Price Books Gift Certificate
Music Box from Victorian Trader Catalog
Caller ID unit
Do Not Even Think of Getting Me:
Jewelry ( I lose it)
Do I want More Kids?
Undecided. I love kids. Raising Lu was probably the my favorite thing I've ever done. But it's not all a carnival, of course. Depending on the preferences of who else was in on the decision, I think I would probably go for it, take the Catholic approach but not go nuts w/ science & test tubes if it didn't happen. After all, hopefully someday I will be a grandmother and I hear that's more fun anyhow.
As this whole exercise has made clear, a friendship with a a think-ative gentleman would be nice.....Less reading, more play....
Other than that, I really don't have a lot of ambition or unmet needs or discontent so this isn't a big long section. More subjects will be added later if they occur to me.......
