    92 inches?! Wow. Okay, maybe not quite so big.

    Re: Things that you really want

    I just want to win supercash. It is only about 300,000 after taxes but enough for me to retire at 50 and live forthe next 30 or 40 years. I've been working full time sometimes 2 jobs for the last 36 years and I am tired. I want to spend my days with Joey.

    I want to learn how to play the guitar.

    I want my hedges to be magically trimmed every month or so.

    I want a lavendar plant that I can't kill.

    And of course I want money. Lots and lots of money.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    Re: Things that you really want

    The things I really want are things I can never have. I can't have my father back. And I can't have my baby back. I would trade everything I have (other than my husband!) if I could have my father and my baby back. And then I'd get greedy and add that my mother would not die either.

    Those are intangibles.

    What do I want that I can control and that is do-able? I want to learn to swim better. I can swim, but I'm so inefficient at it that what should be enjoyable turns out to be an ordeal. I'm pushing 41 this year so I know I can't have my body back from 20 years ago. But I can exercise more and eat better so that I can be healthy AND look better and feel less sluggish. I've started telecommuting part of the week and I want to work fully from home in another year or so. I want a Toyota Prius. I can't justify buying one now when my current car runs just fine. But once it dies, I will plonk down the money for a hybrid. And I suppose I could have this if I wanted to go to the hair salon more often, but I really want my hair to stop going grey! It's not grey enough for me to just let it go completely au naturel. But it's grey enough that the grey/white roots show if I don't dye it every 4 weeks. I hate dying my hair so I dye it about once every 2 or 3 months. So now I have skunk head. I do not like having skunk head.

    That's all for now.

    I want a new digital camera. The one I have now is old and quite large. I got it when they were first coming out on the market. Now they are small and sleek and I really want a new one.

    I also want summer to never end.
    Wake up and be awesome

    Re: Things that you really want

    I am working on getting into the shape of my life and I want that so bad. If I could just make a little more money, that would be good, too. I don't need to be a multimillionaire, just a little bit more comfortable. Then, I am sure everything else would fall in place for me.

    Re: Things that you really want

    I have to say I'm so impressed with the things that people really want. I think it definetly shows a generational age difference as I hear so many teens spout off long list of material goods as their wants.

    And it seems that most of us just want to be financially secure, healthy and for our families to be ok. And a few material goods, but not too many.

    I'd say that most of us have achieved a want that a lot aspire too: to be more or less content.

    Re: Things that you really want

    Material things I want:

    A Garmin GPS. Either the Colorado, the 60csx, or the Nuvi. Or all three.

    A blackberry. With the ability to use it and not be confused.

    Two new vehicles. A car and a 4wheel drive.

    To be able to throw away everything in my laundry room and closet and start with a whole new wardrobe.

    To fly in a helicoptor around the Statue of Liberty.

    All new camping gear. Starting with the tent and sleeping bags.

    To be able to retire and travel around the U.S. in an RV.

    To be able to geocache whenever I want.

    Physical/Spiritial things I want:

    The ability to fly. About every 5 years I have a dream I can fly and it is the most awesome feeling.

    I want my stomache to be flat and my boobs to go back up where they belong.

    New teeth.

    I want to quit smoking.

    I want my relationship with my mother to go back to the way it was 10 years ago.

    I want the fight I had with my brother last year, (First one in 25yrs.) to have never happend.

    I want to stop feeling so insecure at work.

    I want to ride roller coasters and not get sick like I could when I was younger.

    Non Material things I want:

    For people who take the time to get out and enjoy nature to take the time to clean up after themselves. Actually let's just broaden this and say I want pollution of all kinds everywhere eradicated. That would be awesome.

    I want the people of Africa to be educated and take steps on preventing Aids.

    I want Americans to quit being so wasteful.

    I want world hunger to end. Seriously, as a wasteful American, it absolutely boggles my mind that there are hungry people in the world. Why hasn't this been fixed already?

    I want my kids to grow up to lead long, happy lives.

    And finally I want world peace.
