My friend Mary and I were notorious for making 11:11 wishes on digital clocks in high school, so when I passed by the microwave, and noticed it was 11:11 on 11.11, I just had to kiss my fingers, touch the clock and wish for the following small things to happen in the year 2011.
- win a million dollars (or just the HGTV dream home - no need to be greedy)
- lots of dates with my husband
- go to Disney with my family
- buy a new car
- lose 15 more lbs
Then I realized that the year 2011 ended in eight weeks. Sheesh. So I forfeited all of my earlier wishes and made the more realistic choice of world peace.
I just want you all to know that when everyone grabs hands on December 31, 2011, and breaks into some cheesy song (hopefully written by Michael Bolton, with a lovely interlude by Kenny G) that is my wish coming true. I made that happen.
Happy 11-11-11 to all my friends out there. I hope all of your wishes come true - as long as they don't interfere with my wishes.
Dang. I should have wished that my wish would trump all other wishes. Stupid!
BDEM: Someone (meaning my lovely sister in law, Sierra ) CALLED ME, to see if she could take my kids to a movie. Um, yes please! Rob and I had our first date in what seemed like a million years. We ate wings, and bought a birthday present for Ella Bella. Sigh. It was heaven.
