I was thinking the other day about all of the things I “miss”. There are various reasons why these things aren’t in my life at the moment, but in that moment, I couldn’t help but to write them down. And so I present to you, the things I miss right now.
… a kitchen of my own with the pots and pans I have grown accustomed to cooking with over the years.
… my oversized chair that has seemed to help me create the novels (and blog posts) that I so dearly love writing.
… my closet full of clothes, so I need not do laundry every 2 weeks (seriously… it’s like clock-work).
… grass. (Which for those of you who know how much snow we have – and keep getting – it may be May before I see it again.)
… the podcasts I enjoy. There are a couple of them that I used to listen to regularly, but because I haven’t made them a priority, they sit there unheard.
… painting. I’ve done a little (and by that definition, little means 1 piece) painting in the last 6 weeks… but because the area that I live isn’t really set up for it, it makes it more difficult to do (and am afraid that I’d have a huge mess to clean up after.)
… sibling nights. Last year, my brothers and I decided that we would make spending time together a priority. It did for a few months, and then it’s been sporadic (at best) ever since. I really hope that my time spent with them (and their wives) moves higher on each of our lists this year.
… “Scandal”. Yes, the TV show. I need to find a way to watch it online because I missed some episodes that aren’t available on Hulu Plus. (*shakes fist in air*) The only other show that I’m not quite caught up on (meaning I’ve got 10 episodes sitting in my Hulu Plus queue), but don’t care quite as much, is Parenthood.
… my “Friends” dvds. While I love “Big Bang Theory” to no end, there is nothing like having some Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe and Joey in your life. And right now, that’s sorely lacking for me.
Today I write these things here, in the hopes that with the hard work I’ve been doing this past year getting everything in my life in order, that I’ll be able to have each of these things in my life later in 2014… or at the latest, 2015. (I mean, I know I can’t control when I see the grass… but it’s got to come out sometime… right?!?)
Is there anything in your life that you miss?
