Oh my goodness how I love summer. Ok, that has nothing to do with what I’m about to say. It’s just that I’m sitting here typing at my window and I am LOVING how much I LOVE summer. Breezes, smells, humidity, rustling leaves. Ahhhhh!!!!
Today, I am cleaning up my craft room. It is a one step forward, five steps backward type affair. I’ve been doing this for what feels like months or years. I’m almost there! Really!
I just came across a piece of paper that says my IQ is 127. Um, ok, sure, sounds ok to me. I’ll take it. Below that it says I am an Insightful Linguist. I’ll let my blog readers decide on that one. The description says that I am “highly intelligent (HA!) and have the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist”. Wow, sounds like I’m pretty awesome.
Below that on the sheet is a quote: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
It is the next part on the paper that made me stop what I was doing and write a blog post. I don’t really know when I wrote all this stuff on a piece of paper. I’m guessing it was 8 years ago. There are two clues that tell me an approximate date. 1. I mention not having a car. 2. I had quit drinking Coca-Cola for 6 months. I’d say this was written right before I started dating my husband-to-be.
Ok, so here it is. A list of things. It made me laugh so I’m sharing.
I would have been 30 when I wrote this.
One thing I would love to have, but I probably will never have… a tatami room
One thing you will never find in my closet… dead bodies
One thing I love about my face… my eyes
One thing that I love to do… sleep
One thing that I would like to change if I could… the irreparable damage to the environment, world hunger, social violence, war, and um, the size of my butt
One thing I would change if I had unlimited money… donate, donate, donate and fund a scholarship

One thing that I would like to do… become a mother
