Thirteen Things on Shash’s Christmas Wish List:1… Besides the usual “I want my house finished” list… what else is there?! 2… A new digital camera. Mine doesn’t download to the computer anymore and the photos are grainy when you blow them up, I guess that’s what you get with a 3.1.3… I need some new work/church clothes, especially pants. I’ve shape shifted after the 4th baby and can’t wear many of my old clothes.4… A stove. We don’t have one for our kitchen, we will be using a toaster oven and counter top roaster for a while. It’s not just any stove my hubby wants… it’s a professional type gas stove with a grill. Dream big right?!5… My van’s radio/CD player fixed. We’ve been without the sound of music for a few months — I need something to keep the kids occupied during the long trips we frequently do.6…A new pair of black (dress) boots. Mine died last winter, I thought I could get away with wearing them again for one more year (I bought them in 2002) but my feet got wet…7… A microwave. We sold our with the last house, it was a built in over the stove. I miss it.8… A dishwasher. Same reason as above.9… A new winter (dress) coat. My black wool one I bought in 1997, I wear it every day from the fall to the spring. I love it but it is very tired. The pockets are coming apart and it’s growing fuzz.10… To be fully unpacked from moving almost 17 months ago.11… A gas fireplace. 3 sided. To go between our living room and dining room area in our portion of the house (the basement).12… A dresser for Emma and Jacob. They have had to live out of boxes and baskets. I have 1 plastic drawer container for Emma now but it’s not big enough.13… New furniture. We don’t currently have a dining room table – or a kitchen table for that matter. We gave ours away a while ago, it’s seed. We also need new couches, ours are 10 years old and were at one time white. Who knew white wouldn’t be a good colour for a family with kids??! We also have oddles of people over and lots of people cram on the couch and it actually slightly snapped before we moved into this house. We also don’t have any coffee tables… basically it’s safe to say… we do not have a lick of furniture to put into our space once we move into that space.
