I want to quilt. And not a crappy school-project quilt like I made last spring for class, even though it totally rocked as a way to earn an A in western literature.
I want to make and decorate cakes that look professional. This could come in handy for friends’ weddings and showers, and also for making myself happy because I could look at it and say “I made that.”
I want to decorate the nursery. This is presently on hold because we’re refinishing our floors in 3.5 weeks (but who is counting) so any effort now would have to be deconstructed. All that to say, no surprises please, Nugget. We’re on a tight schedule here.
I want to be good at taking pictures. Maybe it’s not the taking that’s as important as the editing. I don’t know. I just know we have this awesome Canon SLR that I use like a point and shoot. That’s lame. Almost as lame as the lens that came with said camera. That must be my downfall, where I go photographically wrong. yup. Blaming the lens.
I want to cook more meals each week. I’m trying to do something about it this month so that come July I’m less of a “Oh crap. Well, Kraft Mac and Cheese it is, again.” mom.
I want to be able to paint. We bought letters that spell the name we’ve picked out for Nugget, but I’m hesitating to take a paintbrush to them for fear I’ll ruin them.
Mostly I would just like to be able to do everything, perfectly.
Oh, and having the time to do it would be nice too.
That’s really all I ask.
