What I want(ed)…

My very own wish list!

One rainy afternoon in fall, I sat down at the kitchen table and started writing a list of things I wanted. Little things and big things, some to get sooner, some to get later. In the end, I had filled 6 pages. Wow, what a fucking lot, LOL

Now, five years later, I can tick off almost everything on that list.

 

Here’s what I jotted down that day:

    Sent from my iPhone

    1. Ha ha, thanks for the offer Mirren. Actually, I’ve got more people to talk to in England and the USA than I ever hoped for with all the writing and critiquing for fellow authors I do. But if you want to hang out for a chat, head over to ma facebook site and say hello! I always love to hear more of my readers 😀

  2. On my due list:

    – To wish Piper Shelly good luck with her son’s surgery. (check)

    I’m sure he will be just fine, after all, his mom has a lot of crazy fans wishing the best for him…. and, lets face it, with you as his mom, I’m sure he will grow up to be as much of a heartbreaker as Ryan is.

    1. Thank you, Veronica! For everything in that post. I am a little nervous because of the surgery, but I’m sure it’ll work out just fine. 🙂
      And yes, I can totally see him be any girls dreamboy. He just has to work on his manners a little more and stop calling them stupid… LOL
