Thursday 13-Version 6: Things I'd Like Santa to Deliver

1. A place for everything and everything in its place and that everything that needed doing was DONE

2. More room in my classroom

3. More room in my house

4. More room in my chair when I sit in it

5. A sweet Bulldog puppy that my lazy Hemingway cat would NOT eat

6. Several books on various political and historical topics

7. Extra time to read the books on various political and historical topics

8. A full time cook and laundress for my long suffering family

9. An assistant to do my clerical work in the classroom

10. A three-stone diamond ring from Dear Hubby

11. A book deal….it doesn’t matter what kind of book…any deal will do

12. A brand new Jaguar----Champagne colored

13. One more lucid conversation with my mother

Great list! I hope you get them all! Send Santa my way and tell him I could use most of those things too. :) Merry Christmas!

I completely agree about the need for a full-time secretary for school-based paperwork. I just recycled TWO trash bags full of memos, notes, and ridiculous stuff. I mean, I can teach, or I can answer all of the memos--guess what gets done? Have a great holiday, and I hope you get lots of things from your list!

#4 cracked me up :-)

I'd like to have one more conversation with my Mom, too. I didn't think she'd go when she did...course I couldn't imagine her going anyway!

Hang in there and know she loves you and is at peace.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I could go with pretty much any or all of those!

I enjoy historical books, especially books that focus on environmental history. But I also enjoy books that focus on history of the American west.

My 13 are up.

Gabrielle said...

Yay for no.12! LOL

Laura said...

More room in my classroom!!! Yeh! And diamonds, yes please!

Salad cream is a salad dressing, it looks like a loose creamy yellow mayo but it's sharper, more vinegary. And is not made in the same way as mayo --> a recipe to give you an idea, I'm buying mine! And I'm roasting my parsnips, with a dash of honey added just for the last 10 mins.

Missy said...

I could always go for more books! Especially history books. Great list! Hope Santa is listening. ;)

#8 is a must!

amy said...

Those are all good desires..hope you get the bulldog

Christine said...

Could you ask Santa for #8 and #10 for me too. My first restaurant job, the owner, she had a champagne Jag that I just envied.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

Boy that list sneaks up on you...slowly slowly a little humor, a little wishful thinking and then pow, the last wish...choked me up a bit I will say.

Good list and I hope all your wishes come true and you have a wonderful holiday!!!

When Santa delivers that extra space to you, see if he has any left over and send him to my house!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sanni said...

#1 and #8 for me, please =)
Great list - I hope all your (grantable) wishes come true!

Merry Christmas to you and yours,
San
P.S.: Please visit my TT #6 - Thanks a lot!

Tink said...

The things I would do for #13... I lost my mum in June. I know she's still here somehow, but it's not the same...
Have a warm and lovely Christmas and I hope santa brings you everything you want!
My TT is about Yule.

Stephanie said...

great list! I want number 8 too!

Jane said...

Well, I hope all your dreams come true.....especially that 3-stone diamond ring and Jag!!
Thanks for stopping by my T13. I love meeting fellow Georgia bloggers.
Merry Christmas!

Mikala said...

Fantastic list - I hope you get at least some of these things!

Happy TT and Merry Christmas!

I’m up!

ali said...

oooh...i would totally love #8!

Heather Smith said...

I'm wishing for a book deal myself!! And the maid...yeah, that'd be nice!
You can check out my list here!

Jessie said...

#1 is what I ought to put on my list!

Rashenbo said...

That's a fantastic list.... a little bulldog puppy would just be wonderful over here too! :) I'd also like to order one of those cooks/laundress please! :)

Have a very Merry Christmas... and may Santa bring you as much as he possibly can to match your list.

Andrea said...

I could use some more room too! Happy TT and have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for stopping by my place.

Caylynn said...

Great list! :) More room would always be useful! I hope some of your Christmas wishes come true.

Happy Holidays!

Janene said...

I was thinking of asking Santa for someone to do the laundry and make dinner, too. Think he can wrestle up 2 of those before Christmas? I really only need it for about 6 months. At least that's what I'd tell him...then I'd probably beg for her to stay on. :)

Thanks for stopping by ~ hope you have a wonderful Christmas full of happy memeories and miracles!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

More room, indeed! (although can I substitute the cook and laundress for a housekeeper like Alice on the Brady Bunch?)

Happy TT!

Jennie W said...

Awesome list! Merry Christmas!

erica said...

Great list! I'll take a #8!! :)

Happy TT & Merry Christmas!

Becky said...

I hope you get everything on your list. I would so do #9 if I could do it from home. I love clerical work! :) Happy TT & Merry Christmas!

teachergirl said...

Here's hoping you get more room in your classroom; if you do, post how you did it. Merry Christmas!!

she said...

When you're done with him/her, can I borrow your assistant?

dawn said...

great list - I'm adding #8 to my wishlist.

Happy TT
