I Wish Wednesday

Hello my little bluebirds of happiness. How the heck are you all? Well, happy and on track and heading in the downward direction, I hope. :D :D

Today is Wednesday. I think I will do "I Wish Wednesday".

I wish that the burning in the forest would stop. I am in misery. And it is being done to me against my will and I resent it.

I wish that I had not murdered my poor espresso/cappuccino maker. I miss it, terribly. And I am growing weary of instant coffee.

I wish I had smaller, more narrow feet. Land yachts on the end of my legs... Not so pretty, actually.

I wish my boobs would shrink faster. Seriously, folks. These things need to go. They are horribly heavy and wearing them is agony in the extreme.

I wish that I had a little, teeny, tiny nuclear weapon I could drop on my neighbour's house.  It needs to be done.

I wish that I could have a break from my headaches. I just want to know what it feels like to go one week without head pain. Is that too much to ask?

I wish I lived closer to my mother. She is amazing and she is my touchstone and my best friend and I miss her face.

I wish that I could go back in time and hug my son when he was a fat, squishy toddler, just one more time. Parents with little ones, don't wish for your tiny ones to grow up, too often. Because they do. Way too fast. One day they are fat, squishy toddlers and the next they are looming on 22 and you are left wondering where the hell the time and your baby went. (Yes, I am freaked the hell out that my son will be 22 in December. Shit! I am getting old! lolol)

I wish I had another cup of coffee and didn't have to actually get off my ass and go make one.

I wish that all of you knew just how grateful I am for each and every one of you! Your stories, points of view, snark and gentle meanderings fill my heart and brain and spirit with the best food I could ever ask for. Your support carries me when I want to give up and your brutal honesty jars me to rethink a wrong path I have begun to walk. Without this community, I don't know where I would be, today. I strongly suspect it would be in deep trouble.

Have a fantastic Wednesday, gentle readers. Eat well, move your bodies and love yourselves. You deserve it. Always.


  1. Sorry about your head pain, I am sure the smoke does not help.

  2. I enjoyed your post...except for your headache. I hear you on the squishy toddlers (my daughter is now 26) however, I now have another squishy toddler, 2 1/2 yo granddaughter....just wait, you'll love it.

    I really appreciate your stories and your point of view as well.

  3. I also suffer from headaches 3-4 times a week and am SICK of the pain. I too wish they would go away. I'm following you now!

  4. I enjoyed this, Erika. Thanks for sharing. I'm wishing for your smoke to go away, too.

  5. Good God - I wish I had narrower feet too - I got the snakeskin shoes to fit lengthwise but widthwise - NO WAY!

  6. I would think that all that smoke would be considered air pollution. If a factory did that they would get in trouble. But I guess this controlled burning is supposed to prevent really serious fires.
