I don’t want to be needed, but I don’t want my children to stop needing me.

I want to be left alone, but I don’t want to be alone.

I want to give, but I want to have.

I want to succeed, but I don’t want to strive.

And of course, I want to be content.

What do you want?

  1. Dear God, please send sunshine. Because there are a lot of us who feel like this right now and I’m pretty sure a big dose of sunshine would make us all feel better.

  2. I want financial security, but we’ve been struggling for so long I want to be a spendthrift too!

  3. I want to finish my How-To essay, which I started on Saturday with How to Make Cinnamon Rolls, then switched to How to borrow Tools from the Garage without the S/O knowing and I’m now working on How to Clean a Bathroom.

    It’s good stuff, good stuff.

  4. Winter gives me a serious case of the blahs.

    I want sunshine. I want spring. I want to lose 10 pounds. I want my husband to not be so stressed out. I want to find a job where I am not bored outta my mind (someone want to hire me as a professional blogger?) 😉 I want my kids to pick up after themselves. I am tired of turning into a nag hag mama!

    Hang in there. I think a LOT of us can relate to this.

  5. This made me laugh just because of the way it’s categorized. I have a “mom is neurotic” category on my blog too. We all need one, don’t we?
