I've been pretty good this year for the most part. Sure I've been lacking severely in the housekeeping department, but I felt that blogging took priority over keeping the house sparkling. Besides, when you stop by on Christmas Eve, you'll note that it has a 'homey' feel if you squint really hard. Or keep your eyes closed. Either way works.
First up on my list is a maid. He or she'd have to be able to clean with his/her eyes closed, though, because if he/she stepped foot in my house at this moment, he/she'd probably run away screaming in fear. At least that what I did yesterday.
While you're at it, maybe you can invent a washer and dryer that completes all the laundry automatically from start to finish - including folding and putting away in drawers and closets. That would eliminate the piles of clean clothes that haven't been put away yet, and maybe the maid wouldn't be scared off so quickly.
My point-and-shoot camera has served me well over the last couple of years, but I really really would like to get a much better more photographer-friendly camera such as the Nikon D5000:
As you know, I'd been studiously saving up for this particular kit, but then life interrupted and my careful savings ended up being dwindled by necessities. So if you have room in your gift bag, adding one of these would be greatly appreciated.
You know how diamonds are a girl's best friend? Well, I've been asking hubby for a pair of these for years:
While he was awesome by getting me diamond solitaire earrings, he didn't hear me correctly when I asked for Princess Cut or 'square'. The round ones are pretty, and I do appreciate them, but I would love to have some that match my engagement ring. While you're at it, maybe you could throw in a matching nose ring, too:
You know, because I love to be coordinated. I suppose I should ask for better coordination so I'm not tripping over things and bumping into things, but that might take a little more work on your part.
Oh, and I hate to mention it, but my laptop has been starting to cause me some trouble lately. I'm not sure that I want to take the leap of faith and switch over to a Mac, though my brother sings high praises after he crossed over to the other side. So if a Mac will eliminate the headaches, I'd be open for a change. As long as it can handle the scads of PC software I have and need.
And while we're talking about technology, I'm really intrigued by the Kindle. So if you have an extra one laying around, I'd be happy to take it off your hands and put it to good use. Though I have a feeling if I get one, I'll get even less sleep, because I'd then be able to read in the dark.
In addition to that, I could really use a smartphone. I'm not picky on which kind, just that it can help keep me organized and connected to the internet on a whim.
We'll be sure to leave you extra cookies on Christmas Eve since you work very hard and deserve a break and a treat. We're mixing up some yummy Reindeer Food for the Reindeer - will Rudolph need some nose polish to keep his nose shiny and bright?
