Someday I Will...

-Take a culinary tour of Italy (this is vastly different from EATING one at Olive Garden).

-Plant and nurture a beautiful Victorian garden (as opposed to planting and KILLING a beautiful Victorian garden).

-Learn how to make Rice Krispie treats that don’t taste like marshmallow-flavored hockey pucks.

-Scuba dive off the Great Barrier Reef.

-Own an authentic Epiphanie camera bag.

-Conquer my addictions to diet Pepsi and OPI.

-Write something else that gets published.

-Become fluent in Italian.

-Stop fighting and let my hair turn gray.

-Own a cottage on a beach or a cabin on a mountain lake.

-Treat my girlfriends to a week at a spa.

-Take my kids to New York City to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, visit Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, take a carriage ride through Central Park, split a sundae at Serendipity and tour the Statue of Liberty.

Today I will...

-Attend an ASTRA meeting where I will help thirty teenagers plan a Halloween costume ball.

-Count yesterday's receipts at the store after which I will wash my hands, thoroughly (Money is dirty, y'all, hence the term filthy rich, I guess?).

-Pull the last of the beets from my garden.

- Cheer for the Man-Cub at an exhibition football game; hope he doesn't get knocked across the field (again).

-Cheer for The Teenager at a volleyball game; hope she manages a few kills and that her serves are as awesome as they were at her last game (nine in a row, cinching the set for her team).

-Make several dozen Gatorblox for The Teenager's PE class (yeah, still not quite sure how I got volunteered for that one).

-Vampire Diaries!!

-Watch Hugh pack for a weekend trip to Denver; help him find (insert item here).

-Tuck my children in for the night.

-Thank God for today and for the possibilities of Someday.
