You already know that I am blessed with everything I want. I have a wonderful family, great friends, a comfortable house, a decent car, plenty of food on the table. Really, I have all I need, and then some.
So what could I possibly have on my Christmas wish list? I don't know Santa, this one is probably asking way too much. I feel guilty and selfish even putting it out there.
But what I really want ... what I crave ... desire ... yearn for ...
One, just one ...
... complete, uninterrupted, satisfying, restorative ...
night of SLEEP!
(key word: uninterrupted!)
Seriously, it's been almost 4 years since I've had such a fulfilling experience.
(do the math, I have 3-year old who will be 4 in April, see what I'm saying?)
I would also like to be able to wake ON MY OWN! No alarm, or hubby's shower and shaver and hair dryer. No little voice saying, "mommy I need to go potty!" No cat scratching at the door. No dog whining in the hall. No Von's grocery truck screaming down the street at an obnoxiously early hour.
One night of uninterrupted sleep with a morning of waking on my own.
There, that's my Christmas wish.
I would be tempted to also ask for a 5 minutes of uninterrupted bathroom time, but I know that's pushing it. I'll save that for next Christmas.
