    Things that you really want

    There are quite a few things I want, and I thought it would be an interesting thread to start. You can post material or non-material, or both, like I'll do.

    Of all the material things I want, an HD TV, high speed internet & a gaming laptop computer would be at the top.

    As for non-material, I would love to be able to train my little chihuahua, Nina, some simple commands, like sit, stay, come, etc. She has a mind of her own and doesn't like to listen to me very much! Lol.

    I would also like to find time to exercise more. I was doing quite well, but I didn't keep up with it.

    What about you?

    Re: Things that you really want

    I want to retire. Desperately. With a reasonable income, nothing too extravagant, just enough to survive on with an occasional treat. I'm only 48 but the idea of spending 1,900 hours per year dressed in conservative clothing and trapped in a cubicle for the next 17 years makes me want to weep. In fact, the idea HAS made me weep, and I'm sure will do so again.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Re: Things that you really want

    I really want to get my degree and it seems like the more I want it, the farther away it gets.

    I really want a new car and to be financially secure. Not rich, but not struggling either.

    I want to have a meaningful job that I enjoy.

    I want my husband to not have so many medical problems that are compounded by his demanding job.

    And I want World Peace.

    Re: Things that you really want

    I want to go to Hawaii and be able to spend without budgeting.
    I want to be able to take my girls shopping at their favorite stores and let them buy stuff that is not on sale. (and not worry about it later)
    I want my husband to quit putting me on a budget.
    I want my daughter to let me hug and kiss her witout recoiling in horror and not be embarrassed to be seen with me in public.

    I want a Wii! Also want to lose 20 more lbs - preferably sooner rather than later but I'm working on it!

    Re: Things that you really want

    I want my old boss back.

    I want the raise that I deserve and have deserved.

    I want to work 5 days a week.

    I want my two remaining children to be self-reliant (they are on their way).

    I want everyone to be able to get along in harmony, without namecalling, ...to win the lottery, ...to get my log cabin in the woods with enough acreage so I don't have any close neighbors (without a spider in the area) with enough land for a garden so I can can my own veggies.

    I really want this last year to not have happened.

    Hmm. The only material thing I want is a great big honking flat screen tv. And I mean BIG.

    Other stuff - I want to finish my degree. Somehow. And I want my parents to be in better health.

    Be careful what you wish for- we have a BIG screen tv (92inch) and it has caused us nothing but problems. We have a smaller one we use more
