One Day....

There are many things I have a dream of 'one day' being able to have. Most of them are simple things such as:
*Staying home with my kids and not having to work
*Having enough money to keep my hair blond
*Having a laundry room and not a laundry hallway
*Having a bedroom big enough for all of our furniture
*Having an office that doesn't have to double as a babies room
*Having a room for just toys
I wouldn't say they are too demanding, Selfish maybe, but not demanding. While I'm working on being less selfish it hasn't quite happened yet. Because one day I hope to have a garage that we can park both cars in and a room inside the house to use the treadmill. Below is what I get to look at when I decide to get on the treadmill and exercise....
I don't know what I find more exciting to stare at while running, the blank wall, the pipe thing to the right sticking out, the pipe thing in the middle sticking out, the smashed cricket half way down the wall (not visible in this picture) or the sticky note taped over the display so I don't get down when I see I have only run so many minutes, miles or my speed!
I know I should be grateful that my parents were kind enough to let me borrow their treadmill at all. It might be an old one, but it folds up and does it's job! During this time of year and since having kids it is nice to be able to go in the garage and run while the kids are in bed and/or it's dark outside. I do appreciate actually having a treadmill at my house it's just one I'd really like to have in it's own room in my house with maybe a TV to watch instead of a wall...
One positive thing to having the treadmill in the garage... Ethan loves to hang out in there with me while I do run! He gets his dad's laptop and watches videos while I run my ever growing belly crazy!!! Poor boy though, this is his set up while I run...
Don't you like the nice laptop stand (ice cooler) and his comfy rocking chair?? Not much room for anything else, but for now I guess it's just right!!!

Working for or having to wait for our desires so much more worth it when we get it!! I worked for the first 5 years of Katelynn's life and it makes me so much more grateful to be home with my kids now.

I agree with Korina, and congrats to you!! It is quite impressive that you are still getting out there and running. Keep up the good work!

Oh I have so many of those one day things. Way to stay positive though. Sometimes those somedays can really depress me. Keep smiling and one day, one day we will have our heart's desires. Hugs!

I too have a huge list of "one days". If i ever get them, they will be very appreciated. I think it's good to have to want things for a while. Makes you focus on what's really important too! cute post.
