Lately, I’ve been consumed with the idea of selling our house and moving into my ideal neighborhood, Atwater Village.
I get an idea in my head and it festers until I become neuroticly obsessed until I get what I want *ie: my dream wedding took 1 1/2 years to plan, it took 2 years of open houses and 13 written offers before we bought our house and it took 3 long years to have our lovely Olivia Lily* so I know this too will take plenty of time, sweat and tears. I know what needs to be done to get our house in selling order but how will we get approved for a new mortgage in today’s economy? Another issue is the house I want to buy isn’t for sale and if/when we are ready to buy how will I get that particular house when it’s not on the market? My best friend Aimee says I have “the Secret” power to get whatever I want but this is one time I’m not 100% confident my “Secret” will work in my favor. Luckily I have a 4 year timeline to make it happen.
On a shorter term wishlist…
Wouldn’t it be delightful to see Blonde Redhead on their last day of their European tour at Shepard’s Bush in London?? Oh well, I could settle for taking Liv to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live at the Nokia Theater in downtown LA on November 28th. I asked one of my friends who worked on the show but they aren’t sure they can get tix so I may have to buy some next week *althought lousy seats are left and I want the VIP package that included pictures with the cast*
I am thinking of taking Liv to Disneyland for Christmas but should we go all out and stay at the Disneyland Hotel for a few nights *so we can take naps and feed her easily* or wait until next year when she’s older and she’ll appreciate staying at the hotel more as a toddler. hmm…
Since the winter season is fast approaching, will this be the year I take on #6 on my 30 Before I’m 75 list? Well, it seems unlikely being that we don’t have a formal dining table *or respectable dishware for that matter* and I haven’t achieved that level of Domestic Goddess yet. Although a nice way to get closer to it would be to take a cooking class at Sur la Table at the Americana.
sorry, it’s lunchtime for Liv and I’ve got a grilled cheese sandwich with my name written all over it….
