Wish I may, wish I might...

I've been a slacker with the Spin Cycle the past few weeks (Sorry Sprite's Keeper!), but I've decided to kick my own butt into gear this morning and write about this week's topic:  wishes.  I wish I could come up with something brilliant and witty to write....
It's ironic because there's something lately that's been on the top of my wish list, as I know it is with a lot of us out there.  I wish I had more time.
More time to relax.  More time to do the things on my ever-growing "to do" list.  More time to go out and have fine.  Just more time.
I wish I had more time to spend at home.  We have this brand new house, and I feel like I hardly get time to spend in it.  With traveling to Michigan, Colorado, and Vegas over the past two months, I feel like I've spent more time in hotels than I have in my own bed. 
I wish I had more time to write.  I haven't written a single sentence in my manuscript since May.  (Bad, Nain, bad!)  I could go for a few more hours in the day to dedicate to that. 
I wish I had more time to spend with family and friends.  I feel like I hardly ever get to see some of my friends lately.  Seriously, it's ridiculous when you have to schedule dinner dates out months in advance just to be sure you see them. 
I wish I had more time to go on fun dates with T.  Back when we first started dating, we had a TON of time to go to ball games, downtown, movies....but with a new house and marriage comes responsibility.  But both of us are starting to feel the effects of that.  You know, the fact that we spend more time talking about what we need to do around the house, bills, and when the lawn needs mowed or groceries need bought than we do spend talking about our hopes and dreams?  Things that make us happy?  I wish I had more time for that. 
So yeah, this sounds like a complaining type of post, and maybe it is, but that is what I wish for.  What do you wish for?  Stop by Sprite's Keeper and see what other's are spinning!


  1. More time would be amazing. That is definitely what I wish for.

  2. More time is on my wish list too. There are just not enough hours in the day. I also need time to go out with my hubby, no kids, just us and have an evening. Again time and sitters are the issue.
    Hope we can all find more time, somehow.

  3. I think time will always be on my wish list. John and I have been spending a lot of time lately on getting our debt down to zero. (Almost there!) So, activities have been more cheap, but still fun! Movie nights at home with homemade stove top popcorn, just walking the mall visits determined to stay under a certain amount (hard to do with a Disney Store loving kid), park visits, bike rides. We're making it work! You'll get there, but definitely put some downtime on your schedule! You're linked!

  4. I wish for a break from life, a vacation, and money to pay for that vacation...lol.


  5. I would love more time, as well. Especially if it gave me more time to relax and have fun, rather than clean!

  6. Oh to have more time to get to the things we need done so we have time to do the tings we want to do…

    Sometimes I wish I had a time machine so I could have something done "Yesterday"

    Great Spin!

  7. I wish for your wish too! Who couldn't use more time?
