Wishing and Wondering


We're just a couple of weeks into the new school year, and we're already sharing our first case of the sniffles. Rather than try to think of something to write, I decided I'd post an illustration.

Looking at this painting again made me think that I wish my head didn't feel as though it were full of sawdust, and I wonder if fudgesicles would really be such a bad idea for dinner.

I wish the new season of LOST were starting sooner, and I wonder if we'll be seeing more of Desmond this year...

I wish I could get to the hair salon more often, and I wonder if the trim I gave myself is really as crooked as I think it is. Maybe if I tilt my head, no one will notice.

What do you wish? What do you wonder?

I wish I could work from home and get away from this stressed filled job that I have now...and I wonder if that will ever happen...hugs...

Hope you feel better soon...

MG Higgins said...

I wish I were done with my revision. And I wonder if there's a magical agent out there who doesn't care if it's not perfect. (Ha.)

LOVE the picture.

Brenda - So sorry your job is getting you down!! I'll make a wish for you to get some relief...hope the stress lets up.

MG - I wonder that same thing! If you find one, tell the rest of us...

Kelly said...

Feel better, Adrienne!
I wish for a healthy school year for my kids! There's already strep and stomach flu going around! (not in this house yet, but it's just a matter of time)
And there are so many more wishes...but I can only pray and/or do my best to help them come true!

Lily Cate said...

I wonder what the next thing is that I will encounter that will really impress me.

Hope you guys feel better. Try some Echinacea and Golden Seal

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Ugh, here's to high pollen counts on the decline!
I bet no one notices your hair--you probably move constantly so how could they tell?

ICQB said...

Sometimes I announce that it's 'Get Your Own Dinner Night'. I think fudgesicles have been the dinner of choice for some on such nights.

I wish I could trim the hedges without having to take a shower afterward, and I wonder what the neighbors would say if I just stopped trimming my hedges?

adrienne said...

Kelly - It doesn't take long, does it? My son just told me there's a case of chicken pox at school...
Here's hoping you keep the bugs away as long as possible!

Lily - I like that one! But wait, it wasn't my amazing blog...? ;)

Kim - Thanks for the tips! Might not hurt to stock up on Vitamin C, too...

Green Girl - Good point. I've never been an every hair in place kind of person, anyway. :)

ICQB - If you let the hedges get tall enough, at least you won't notice the neighbors complaining.

I love your illustration.
Right now I wish I had a kitchen fairy who loved to do dishes. And straighten up. And cook too. (While I'm wishing I might as well go for it!)
Hope you feel better soon!

I wonder why I didn't leave my "real" job about ten years before I did. I wish I could meet all of my online friends in person because the ones I have met are spectacular.

Thanks for making me wonder and wish.

I wish we weren't so reliant on plastic. And I wonder why we are.

Hope you all feel better SOON.

I stopped by here yesterday and read this, I realized I don’t
have a wish; I am not wondering…I have been on a non stop worrying campaign.
So today I am not going to STOP, I am going to dream, I am going to wish, I am going to wonder.
I use to be very good at that…

I will report back later…

Becky - I wish that, too - especially since we added the dishwasher to the list of things that broke down this summer.

Sliding... - That's a fun wish! I haven't met any online friends, but I'm sure they are delightful.

Bish - It would be nice to see some changes there.

Louise - It's tough to break those cycles...I hope you'll treat yourself to something FUN while you're at it.

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

I wish it's December already! Then I'd be in UK, Portugal and Holland for a holiday. Yippee! Still I have to wait, patiently.

Vodka Mom said...

I wish I had more hours in the day....

and I wonder what tomorrow will bring......


(And I TOO can't wait for LOST.)

adrienne said...

Keats - No wonder you can't wait! I wish you happy travels.

Vodka Mom - More hours would be great. I'd use some of them to try to figure out what's going on in LOST.

Anne Spollen said...

I think I'd wish I didn't have to work so I guess that would be for more time.

Pretty boring wish...
