"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

My Wants

Right now I am trapped at home with sick children. It is January, snowing, freezing cold, and gloomy outside. The smell of vomit is permeating my house. At least one person has been throwing up since Thursday.

The kids are all asleep upstairs and while I should be doing laundry (that's right...it's caught up to me again!) I am sitting here at the computer drooling over certain items I'd like to have. But as it stands, we have no money for anything, especially not anything frivolous and fun. Not even a dime left over at the end of the month after paying for essentials. But still, I dream. The more I learn about the Silhouette, the more I want one! I am not materialistic by any means, but I'd really love to have one of these. It would make card making and scrapbooking so much better!

While we're talking about scrapbooking and such, I'm also wanting one of these. I have always been a film snob, especially when it comes to SLRs. But I'm slowly being won over to the digital SLR side. I've had my eye on this camera for so long and I'd love to have one. It will likely never happen as long as life continues like it is. But it's fun to think about.

Thayne told me I get to buy anything I want when he gets his bonus... I'm buying stuff to start digital scrapbooking!!! You can then come and play with me if you want to!!! :) But I need to finish up the millions of pictures that I have sitting in my back room first! It's never going to happen, is it???

Veronica, dream are an essential part of life. And when one of those dreams come true. it makes you feel so great.

I had been dreaming of a new *real* digital camera for so long. Being the cheap person that I am, I did not want to pay full price or even get it at a reasonnable price. So, I waited... several years! Last Summer, I found THE camera that I wanted for so long a Canon Rebel XT EOS. Not only did I get my camera but I also got an extra lense!!! After that, dh suggested I get a bag to put it all.

The first time I took a picture with it (once it was mine), I felt like I was the luckiest person in the whole world. I finally had MY camera. Ok, I will blog about this later on, if I have time, lol.

Keep on dream, my friend, because some dreams are meant to come true. Like us having another baby after suffering a lost not long ago.
