20 Things I Could Look Forward To..

So Teri and I were talking yesterday.. and I was all 'woe is me' on the phone with her.. being depressed and whiny, cause I'm like that. So she decided she wanted to try and help me out.. to cheer me up. I told her to piss off.. but she wouldn't. So here is my assignment from her. She told me to list out twenty things that I could look forward to. They don't have to be realistic or practical.. but that would be a plus. So here goes..

I could look forward to...
  1. Taking a trip with my husband.. just us two with no kids. Somewhere romantic and expensive... and maybe even exotic.
  2. Seeing old friends that I haven't seen in years. Having a drink and a laugh together, catching up on all we've missed in each other's lives.
  3. Taking a trip to Europe.. seeing Ireland.
  4. Going to Canada again.. and having tea in the Empress Hotel (I was bummed when we missed it when I was there in high school).
  5. Meeting Steenky Bee and some of my other favorite bloggers in Colorado this summer.. But mostly meeting Steenky.. I heart you.
  6. Taking a road trip with my whole family back to California.. seeing old friends along the way, visiting The City, going to the beach, and seeing J's family again..
  7. Hanging out with Amy and David, and their girls, when they come visit soon..
  8. Eating an awesome piece of cheesecake without thinking about it making me fat.
  9. Getting a new projector so we can hook up our Wii again.. I need to do me some Wii Fit.
  10. Playing Mario Kart with Teri on Wii.
  11. Tossing back a beer (or two..) with Teri and Kevin..
  12. Visiting my brother and his family in Florida.
  13. Swimming.. and then swimming some more..
  14. Buying an oboe and playing again.. I loved playing oboe.. and maybe a trombone.
  15. Getting a piano, playing again.. and teaching my kids to play.
  16. Doing some acting, preferably theater..
  17. Riding a unicorn into the sunset.
  18. Getting a horse (Aidan would really like that too).
  19. Owning a dog again.
  20. Getting another tattoo.
Okay. There ya go Teri. Hope you liked it.

First round is on me! Hey, I know, let's go to Ireland for some Guinness at the source! :)

Heinous said...

I've always wanted to get to Ireland. One of these days.

If you find a unicorn, let me know. I hear they're scarce ;)

ChurchPunkMom said...

Sounds like a plan, IG. ;)

and you might just need to join us, Heinous.. the more the merrier, I say!

off to look for that unicorn..

Kat said...

I can meet you in Ireland. It is just a hop, skip and jump from here.

Teri said...

Well, it seems we all have travel in mind...road, er, BOAT TRIP!

And not to be a pain in the ass, but I had to LOL at how close Wii Fit and "a beer or two" were to each other. Put em together and we can have a Contradiction Party! w00t!

Great list.
Now all you have to do is start checking them off. I'd say start with the cheesecake. Don't worry about it because you know the next thing on your list can be the Wii Fit, so it's all good. ;D

ChurchPunkMom said...

yeah, sounds like a party!

and no, i will not be starting with cheesecake. :P not what i need right now.

and i thought it was more clever how closely together i put the cheesecake and the Wii Fit. heh heh..

I'm starting with the unicorn.

Don't you just hate it when you tell someone to piss off and they ignore you?

Well, at least for a while don't you hate it when you tell people to piss off and they ignore you?

Because really, when all's said and the pissin' off's not done, it's a pretty nice thing of them to not piss off.

Most of the time.

ChurchPunkMom said...

yes.. most of the time. ;)

Teri said...

TAG! You're it! (25 Things About Me)

Teri said...

Thank you Pamela. I'm good at not pissing off. Ha!

T5M said...

Amy said...
